Airbus takes a “heads-up” approach to HUD retrofit

An amusing video describes Airbus’ retrofit programme for the installation of dual cockpit-mounted head-up displays (HUDs) across its aircraft family product lines.

The retrofit offer responds to China’s requirement that all of the country’s airliner fleets be HUD-equipped by 2025.

Availability of the HUDs increases pilots’ situational awareness, particularly during the approach and landing phases.
