Fly Real HUDs’ Features
Using the new FlyRealHUDs.com HUD simulator, you can test your flying skills in simulated instrument conditions for a CAT I, II and CAT III approaches. Our HUDs also use X-Plane’s unique IR MODE so that you can experience Enhanced Vision. Our HUDs let you select the HUD mode you need for each part of the flight. The Airline and Bizjet HUDs include all of the symbology that is typical of a modern airplane HUD including upset recovery mode.
“Skip the Academy” – Fly Real HUDs
One of the easiest ways to fly an airplane is with a Head-Up Display. Big, small or in the middle, the ease and precision that comes with a real HUD is what you will find with the Airline and Bizjet HUD. So “Skip the Academy” as we say – fly the real thing.
Heavy Metal HUDs
The features for the Air Transport HUD and BizJet HUD include all of the primary capabilities that you would expect in the real thing. Each HUD has a functional Flight Path Vector and Flight Director symbol – that is basic to all real Head Up Displays. But the details of airspeed, V – Speeds like V1, Vr, V2, and speed not to exceed –VNE are all shown on the speed tape for the Air Transport HUD. The HUD also displays winds, angle of attack and detailed navigation information. FlyRealHUDs also provides VOR, ADF needles on the HSI, selected Heading and Course. As you approach “Minimums” the HUD will alert you as you cross the Middle Marker, Inner Marker and provide a Flare Prompt to help land the aircraft.
CATIII Modes for the Air Transport HUD
During a manual or Autoland approach, the HUD will display if the airport is a CAT III runway, and if you are ready for the approach. During the final segment and flare, the Flare Prompt, Idle Command and Runway rollout steering will be seen by the pilot. As you brake, you will see the amount of braking and runway remaining—all part of the CATIII operation with FlyRealHUDs.
Fly Real HUD OPS
Cockpit setup for a professional pilot includes the correct altimeter (BARO) setting – which you will see on the FlyRealHUDs display. Set your target speed, altitude and departure heading, and taxi to the departure runway. As you take the active runway for takeoff – select TOGA mode and accelerate down the runway with your flight director commanding the correct pitch and heading. As you approach assigned altitude, engage ALT Hold and the flight director will hold that altitude – and so will you. Flight Level or FLCH changes, Nav and other flight commands will be seen on the HUD, allowing you to fly each phase of flight with precision.
Upset Recovery – is part of the FlyRealHUDs operation. The HUD display reverts to Upset Recovery mode and is design to help return the aircraft to a wings level and flying condition. As you roll or pitch and exceed certain limits, you can see and experience the recovery and return to normal flight.
Multiple modes of operation, including instrument approaches, visual modes, and more are included. As you engage the aircraft flight modes – like TOGA or FLCH, the HUD and guidance cues will respond for you to fly. If you experience large wind shear, you will see the winds and direction, and the Flight Path Vector will “Ghost” just like the real HUDs.
