Rockwell Collins dual HGS? selected by Azul for E195 fleet

Rockwell Collins
: 26 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Rockwell Collins has been selected by Azul Airlines to provide dual HGS-5600 Head Up Guidance Systems (HGS®) for its fleet of 31 Embraer E195 aircraft. Installation will be completed at Embraer prior to delivery.
'Our selection by Azul marks the debut of our HGS on a South American airline,' said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. 'We're extremely pleased to help equip one of Brazil's newest airlines with an advanced display solution that will provide significant operational and safety benefits.'

'HGS is an integral part of our operation,' said Captain Alvaro Neto, operations director for Azul. 'In the dual configuration, our pilots are able to fly and monitor the aircraft using the same instrument and maintain the highest levels of precision in both the visual and low-visibility arenas. For the Azul operation in Brazil, HGS is a true safety enhancement.'

Rockwell Collins' HGS provides enhanced situational awareness and energy management in all flight conditions. The presentation of all primary flight data in the pilot's forward field of view eliminates transitions from head-down to head-up flying. Using the displayed flight path and acceleration information, it is possible for the pilot to fly very accurate approaches to a precise landing in all conditions, even in turbulence, crosswinds and on black hole approaches.

Key owner/user benefits:

Eyes-out-of-the-flight-deck operation enhances situational awareness
Conformal display of critical flight parameters increases safety
Category III guidance-to-touchdown guides the pilot through the approach, flare, touchdown and rollout
Low visibility takeoff guidance
Precision touchdown capability maximizes landing performance and results in a reduction in wear on tires, wheels, and brakes
Improves windshear awareness and avoidance through head-up warnings and escape guidance
Increases traffic awareness and avoidance with head-up TCAS alerts
Software data loading and enhanced maintenance functions offer improved maintainability
Preferred display for future capabilities such as Enhanced Vision, Synthetic Vision, and Surface Management
The Rockwell Collins HGS-5600 is offered as a factory-installed option by Embraer on the entire E-Jets family - the E170/E175 and the E190/E195.
