In 1995, Gulfstream began discussions with Honeywell about breaking the paradigms of traditional display technology. The subsequent imaginative thinking, the fresh look at formats and functions, and the diligent application of the latest human factors expertise culminated in our PlaneView™ cockpit - the crowning achievement of Gulfstream's digital flight deck experience.
A unique implementation of the Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite, PlaneView builds on the capabilities of the Honeywell SPZ- 8000 series while introducing many new features and functions, including Gulfstream's Enhanced Vision System™.
PlaneView is simply the most advanced flight deck in existence - in display technology, avionics architecture, processing power and its exclusive Interactive Navigation (INAV) management system. The system was designed with the future in mind. PlaneView incorporates the finest technology today without losing sight of future advancements. The open architecture provides the capability to easily integrate avionics functions that are not yet envisioned.
To create PlaneView, we invited the input of experienced Gulfstream pilots - both our customers and FAA aviators. In our lab, we gathered their reactions to large-format displays and graphics interface hardware. Later, we sought pilot feedback in our Integrated Test Facility, where we mounted a full-scale PlaneView mockup and refined the integration of avionics with airframe system controls, engine instruments and other components. We learned much in the process. We discovered that pilots preferred less data on display screens for higher situational awareness. So we worked with Honeywell to eliminate screen clutter. We learned that pilots found too many colors distracting. So, using proven color conventions, we minimized the total number of colors displayed. We also reduced the potential for confusion that pilots attributed to a multitude of on-screen icons, streamlining displays with clear symbols, words and common abbreviations.
PlaneView offers integrated Jeppesen Flight Deck® charts and maps - the first business jet aircraft to provide this advantage.
