Elbit Systems of America expects the Federal Aviation Administration to next year authorize aircraft equipped with its enhanced flight vision system (EFVS) to continue poor weather descents below the current decision height of 100ft (30m). Roy Gentry, Elbit's president commercial aviation - Kollsman, said at an NBAA press conference that the manufacturer expects the new rule in April, allowing EFVS-equipped aircraft to continue descents all the way to the ground using the real-time images generated from the head-up display portion of the system. Currently, at 100ft, pilots are required to visually spot the runway to continue their decent. Oct 20, 2009

Elbit Systems of America expects to certificate its enhanced vision system as a retrofit for the Bombardier Challenger 604 early next year. Elbit at NBAA 2008 forged a partnership with Jetcraft Avionics to offer the EVS as a retrofit on Challenger 604s. The two companies said yesterday that certification is on schedule for early next year, but so far only one order has been secured. Oct 20, 2009
