  1. Dassault Falcon 8X FalconEye CVS Certified 100-foot Minimums
    Today French airframer Dassault Falcon announced that certification is around the corner for the Combined Vision System on the Falcon 8X to allow for bad weather approach down to 100-foot minimum decision heights. The new capability recently completed a joint FAA/EASA certification campaign and will be introduced onto the market before the end of the year. It will permit pilots to make a precision approach at airfields without ground based navigation aids down to a decision height of 100-feet, greatly expanding the number of airports the aircraft can serve in bad weather conditions.
  2. "With FalconEye we’ve not only developed an industry leading technology but provided a huge safety benefit to our operators," said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. "With this coming certification, our customers will have even greater flexibility and access while at the same time benefiting from the enhanced situational awareness of the world’s most advanced combined vision system." The first head-up display to blend synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and actual thermal and low-light camera images into a single view, FalconEye has been available since early 2017, providing an unprecedented level of situational awareness to flight crews in all conditions of operation day and night. The vast majority of Falcon 8X operators has opted to install a FalconEye HUD.
