EASA green lights UA ClearVision solution
ClearVision is a complete EFVS solution providing head-up operations combined with enhanced vision, synthetic 3D terrain display and a unique and optimised Combined Vision System. EASA likes the look of it.

Universal Avionics (UA) has announced EASA certification for its ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) with SkyLens Head-Wearable Display (HWD).

“The certification of our EFVS with SkyLens is a breakthrough in commercial aviation,” says CEO Dror Yahav. “Aircraft operators can now take advantage of major Enhanced Flight Vision capabilities and safety improvements with our proven ClearVision solution. This marks the first civil certification of a HWD and the first EFVS to land solution for line-fit passenger aircraft. These achievements are yet another milestone in our heritage of introducing first-to-market breakthrough technologies and products.”

ClearVision is a complete EFVS solution providing head-up operations combined with enhanced vision (EVS), synthetic 3D terrain display (SVS) and a unique and optimised Combined Vision System (CVS). For utmost flexibility, ClearVision interfaces with a variety of display options: traditional fixed Head-Up Display systems, head-down flight display systems, or wearable devices like the ‘near-to-eye’ SkyLens HWD. All of these options offer pilots unprecedented situational awareness of the external environment surrounding the aircraft, enhancing what they can see with natural vision in degraded visual environments and adverse weather conditions, day or night. The SkyLens high-transparency visor is a cost-effective alternative to a traditional fixed HUD and provides unique capabilities with its unlimited field of regard.

Through its demonstrated Visual Advantage, ClearVision provides relief to approach bans under Part 121 operations and allows operators to use its Enhanced Flight Visibility to meet the flight visibility required to depart to a destination or begin an instrument approach. It enables airlines to operate efficiently and without interruptions in low visibility conditions, generating significant financial savings and unparalleled customer service.
