UA Partners with AerSale on A320 EFVS Solution

Universal Avionics is partnering with AerSale, Inc. to develop an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the ClearVision™ Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) on the Airbus A320 aircraft.

The ClearVision EFVS solution includes the SkyLens™ Head-Wearable Display (HWD), a cost-effective and more modern alternative to a traditional fixed Head-Up Display (HUD). The SkyLens high-transparency visor presents high-resolution symbology/imagery, including Enhanced Vision System (EVS), Synthetic Vision System (SVS), and Combined Vision System (CVS) for superior see-through transmission in all weather conditions, day and night. The state-of-the-art HWD requires significantly less installation efforts, and can often be installed in just a few days, compared to a fixed HUD which requires disassembly of the aircraft cockpit and can take weeks – all while the aircraft is grounded.

As part of the NextGen roadmap, ClearVision aligns with Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 91.176 released by the FAA, enabling operators to perform a full landing procedure with no natural vision, where the reported visibility is as low as 1000'. The ClearVision system offers unmatched capabilities for airline operators, providing dispatch and landing approach priority as well as Low Visibility Landing, regardless of the destination airport's infrastructure.

FAA certification for the retrofit upgrade is expected by the end of first quarter of 2020, with CAAC and EASA STC validation to immediately follow.
