The system is the first major integrated cockpit refresh in nearly a decade from the company that first certified synthetic vision for the multifunction display in 2002, light airplanes in 2005 and air transport cockpits in 2006.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/technology/insight-flight-deck-major-upgrade-universal-avionics" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/technology/insight-flight-deck-major-upgrade-universal-avionics#comments Business Aviation Technology AWIN Next-Generation Avionics Global Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:00:00 +0000 1211911 at http://aviationweek.com <p><strong>Universal Avionics flight test pilot Joel Glunt uses the 3-D exocentric vision feature of InSight to help with taxiing at Orlando Executive Airport.</strong></p> <div> &nbsp;</div> John Croft/AW&ST Use Of General Aviation Aircraft Still Faces An Uphill Battle In China http://aviationweek.com/business-aviation/use-general-aviation-aircraft-still-faces-uphill-battle-china <div class="field-deck"> China is making little progress in opening its skies to fixed-wing general aviation </div> <div class="node-body article-body">In 2010, the hope was that by 2015 private aircraft would be widely usable in China.

From turning on the master switch in pre-flight to setting the parking brake post-flight, business aviation or airline pilots using the new applications will gain hyper-awareness of their condition and surroundings with displays and symbology that present the appropriate information at the right time, smoothly transitioning from one phase to the next. The new applications will hit the market in the next 2-3 years. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/technology/seamless-situational-awareness-honeywell-s-primus-epic-flight-deck" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/technology/seamless-situational-awareness-honeywell-s-primus-epic-flight-deck#comments Business Aviation Commercial Aviation Technology AWIN Next-Generation Avionics Global Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:00:00 +0000 1211941 at http://aviationweek.com <p><strong>The situational awareness difference between legacy (right primary flight display) and future taxi guidance (left primary flight display) is significant.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div> &nbsp;</div> Honeywell/George Tenney Video: Honeywell's Flight Deck of the Future Lab http://aviationweek.com/business-aviation/video-honeywells-flight-deck-future-lab <div class="node-body video-body"><div> Senior Editor for Avionics and Safety John Croft visits Honeywell&#39;s Flight&nbsp;<span style="font-size: 13px;">Deck of the Future (FD-X) Lab to see some of the advanced technologies&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: 13px;">being developed there, including eye-tracking, gesture- and voice-control&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: 13px;">modalities for next-gen cockpits.</span></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div> http://aviationweek.com/business-aviation/video-honeywells-flight-deck-future-lab#comments Business Aviation Commercial Aviation Technology Video Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:00:00 +0000 1212621 at http://aviationweek.com Video: Honeywell's Flight Deck of the Future Lab http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/video-honeywells-flight-deck-future-lab <div class="node-body video-body"><div> Senior Editor for Avionics and Safety John Croft visits Honeywell&#39;s Flight Deck of the Future (FD-X) Lab to see some of the advanced technologies&nbsp;<span style="font-size: 13px;">being developed there, including eye-tracking, gesture- and voice-control&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: 13px;">modalities for next-gen cockpits.</span></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/video-honeywells-flight-deck-future-lab" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/video-honeywells-flight-deck-future-lab#comments Business Aviation Commercial Aviation Technology Video Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:00:00 +0000 1212631 at http://aviationweek.com Aviate, Navigate, Communicate http://aviationweek.com/awin-only/aviate-navigate-communicate <div class="field-byline"> Richard N.
