Garmin Unveils Bizjet Hud
Flying|July 2017

Head-up display systems have been widely used in the military for decades, and the business jet market has also seen the value of presenting flight data in the pilot’s view out the window. With Garmin vying for a bigger chunk of the bizjet market, it has launched its own head-up display system to supplement its highly acclaimed integrated flight decks. The Garmin GHD 2100 HUD delivers a 30-degree, wide-angle display of pertinent flight information in front of the pilot’s eyes, minimizing the time spent looking down and easing the transition from IMC to visual conditions.

The GHD 2100 displays information that is found on the PFD. This includes primary flight data, synthetic vision, and flight path and attitude information. A flight-path-marker-based flight director on the GHD 2100 shows an exact representation of where the airplane is going, taking into account crosswinds, angle of attack and other factors that affect the airplane’s flight path. Surface Watch, which helps pilots avoid landing on or taking off from the wrong runway based on performance data, can also be displayed. The integration of Garmin’s GHD 2100 allows bizjet operators to pursue CAT I and CAT II approach minimums for ILS approaches. In the future, Garmin plans to integrate views from external cameras, such as enhanced vision systems, into the GHD 2100.

The HUD is designed for light, midsize and super-midsize business jets and is compatible with the G3000 and G5000 avionics suites. Garmin says it will soon work with other integrated Garmin systems as well. The Cessna Citation Longitude is the first application.
