Dassault Aviation Certifies Dual HUD on Falcon 8X

The FAA and EASA approve use of Dassault’s advanced dual head-up (HUD) display known as FalconEye on the company’s Falcon 8X very long range trijet, adding to the aircraft’s low-visibility operations capability. The dual HUD configuration will ultimately permit an EFVS-to-land capability in near zero-zero conditions, pending new EASA regulations.
