I just have to show you this -real- picture.
It shows an EMJ 190 approaching London City Airport (LCY). The EMJ 190 has a special so called “steep approach capability”. The LCY airport has a 5.5 glide instead of the regular 3.5 glide. LCY is a Category C airport, meaning all pilots hve to have a simulator training in advance + a certain amount of landings in a consecutive 90 day period.
LCY has a very short runway.
In my opinion, the HUG is truly a large step to a safer way of flying. First of all, you have all the neccessary information available while looking outside!! - Second, when using it in all phases of flight, you dfinitely improve the overall performance.
Our data actually show, that using the HUG in all phases of flight improved the performance with regard to adherence to SID, STARS and -very important- the landing/touchdown footprint (1000ft point).
it is also a huge help in upset recovery (which was never neccessary to use in the real world) and in resolution advisories of the Traffic Collission Avoidance System (TCAS).
By the way, did you know, we have something like TCAS in IF too? - have a look on the map page in crowded areas:-) , you ll see a similar info like on the real world TCAS.
