Dassault Aviation has always been a leader in the push to bring the latest technology into a business jet cockpit. The result is the amazing EASy flight deck: a sophisticated digital flight control system combined with a head-up display which a fighter pilot would feel immediately comfortable using.
And now the next step: FalconEye, which combines the Enhanced Vision System and the Synthetic Vision System along with a very large head-up display to make the proverbial approach to the mountain airport on a dark and stormy night as easy as it would be on the clearest of CAVU VFR days.
Aviation journalist Miles OBrien got a chance to see FalconEye in action at a very tricky airport in the French Alps. He follows up his story with an interview at the 2016 Falcon Family Breakfast with Dassault Aviations Chief Test Pilot, Philippe Deleume.
