Garmin will demonstrate its Head-up Display (GHD) system at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, being staged at Farnborough Airport, UK from 16-20 July.

The GHD interfaces with a variety of air transport flight decks to project a crisp, clear view of pertinent flight information within a single display.

The compact and self-contained GHD projection system offers a large 30-degree by 24-degree field-of-view. The GHD projects a familiar presentation of critical flight information, symbology and more, contributing to increased operational benefits throughout every phase of flight.

Garmin will also be showing a number of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) scalable integrated flight displays, standalone avionics and flight technologies, including a brand new G3000-based tandem cockpit for military use.

At the heart of Garmin’s tandem cockpit experience is its G3000 flightdeck developed originally for business jets but now adopted by the Textron AirLand Scorpion Jet and Diamond Aircraft Industries DART-550.

However, this G3000 is a distinctive take on the advanced flight deck. It’s tandem cockpit configuration consolidates flight instruments within the pilot’s primary field of view and can interface with mission systems in order to provide a seamless experience.
