Universal Avionics develops ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System

ClearVision EFVS

Universal Avionics (UA) has announced a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification for its ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) with SkyLens Head-Wearable Display (HWD)

ClearVision is an EFVS solution that provides enhanced vision, synthetic 3D terrain display and a combined vision system. It offers a variety of display options – traditional fixed head-up display systems, head-down flight display systems or wearable devices like the near-to-eye SkyLens.

“The certification of our EFVS with SkyLens is a breakthrough in commercial aviation,” said Dror Yahav, UA CEO. “Aircraft operators can now take advantage of major Enhanced Flight Vision capabilities and safety improvements with our proven ClearVision solution.”

These options offer situational awareness of the environment surrounding the aircraft even in adverse weather conditions, which allows operators to meet the flight visibility required to depart a destination.

Its pilot-friendly split screen display lets the pilot change between two background areas for optimal control.

Yahav said: “This marks the first civil certification of HWD and the first EFVS solution for line-fit passenger aircrafts. These achievements are yet another milestone in our heritage of introducing first-to-market breakthrough technologies and products.”
