Three times Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda has taken delivery of the first aircraft to feature Bombardier's Vision Flight Deck, a Global 5000.
"Flying a Global aircraft is an incomparable experience, and I'm convinced that the new flight deck will not only meet, but surpass, my expectations," says Lauda.
This is the latest in a series of Bombardier aircraft that Lauda has owned and piloted. Until recently he operated a Challenger 300 as his private aircraft, which he frequently used to travel to Formula 1 races around the world from his home base in Austria.
Bombardier and Rockwell Collins are the first to certify synthetic vision imagery on a HUD as part of the Pro Line Fusion system. The Vision Flight Deck received EASA certification on February 20 and is featured on Global 5000 and 6000 jets.
