Bombardier (BBD) has completed the delivery of its first Global 7500 aircraft with a dual head-up display (HUD).

Bombardier have called the Global 7500 aircraft the most advanced and pilot-friendly cockpit in business aviation. The HUD is equipped with enhanced and synthetic vision systems, which can improve a pilot’s situational awareness.

By adding a second HUD, these advantages are compounded as it allows the co-pilot to contribute more to the overall display. This allows pilots two more easily switch roles during journeys.  The dual-HUD also allows for valuable in-built redundancy into the system, something airlines crave when adopting new technologies.

The new system also comes with the latest version of Bombardier’s Vision system, a flight deck that offers automated flight services to the crew. The system’s automated services include fuel transfers, cabin pressurisation management and automated start-up sequences, which have been streamlined and simplified.

The flight deck also comes with self-diagnostic services that allow the system to auto-correct when needed.

The Global 7500 aircraft is now Bombardier’s flagship business liner and retails for approximately C$100 million.

The news follows a tough few months for the company during the COVID-19 pandemic, where it was forced to temporarily close production facilities.  This in turn led to substantial share price fall from a high of nearly C$2.00 at the start of the year to trading at just $0.40 per share today.

Bombardier (BBD) is down one per cent and is trading at C$0.40 per share at 2:00 pm EDT.
