Qatar orders new HUD for A380, A350 fleets

Qatar Airways has ordered a new head-up display (HUD) to be installed on its entire new fleet of A350 XWBs and A380 aircraft, Arabian Aerospace has reported. The Thales dual HUD system is a major situational awareness contributor giving pilots much greater visibility throughout all phases of flight, especially for take-off and landing. It provides pilots with immediate trajectory information through symbols presented on top of the pilot's actual external view.
