The House Aviation Subcommittee held a hearing in mid-September on the status of NextGen implementation. In addition to receiving testimony from a government panel, the Subcommittee also heard from a second industry panel that provided their prospectives from the aircraft, airport operator, and controller perspectives. The NextGen Advisory Council (NAC) forms part of this industry representation. The NAC sub committee consists of dedicated working and task groups contributing to meaningful ways to measure NextGen performance in which Jetcraft Avionics plays a key role. Jetcraft Avionics’ Ken Elliot is an active member of the task group that produced the “Metrics for Measuring NextGen Implementation” and he leads the task group that produced the “Fuel Burn Data Source Report”.
No longer just a concept, combined vision systems, or CVS, are being implemented today in new aircraft platforms. The two primary players are Rockwell Collins with its Bombardier Global Vision Pro Line Fusion and Honeywell with its Gulfstream PlaneView cockpits. Other aircraft and avionics manufacturers are rapidly developing and incorporating versions of vision technology to meet a market niche. As pricing allows, combined vision, or CV, will migrate into smaller and aftermarket cockpits.
April 2012 – Jetcraft, as an established aircraft sales company, saw both a need and market potential in vision technology, and was the first with a comprehensive EFVS aftermarket program. Jetcraft is known for both aftermarket improvements and conversions of “green” aircraft tailored for the individual buyer.
