ELECTRONIC INTEGRATED PILOT DISPLAY IS EVALUATED IN NORTH SEA OPERATIONS

An electronic integrated pilot display manufactured by Kaiser Aerospace and Electronics has been under operational evaluation in a Sikorsky S-61N helicopter operated by KLM Noordzee Helikopters B. V. since November 1975. This instrument, using a cathode ray tube as a display device, combines the data from all instruments normally scanned by the S-61 pilot during instrument takeoffs and landings. It is installed in place of the conventional artificial horizon in the right-hand instrument panel. Modes of operation under evaluation include instrument takeoff (adaptive to aircraft gross weight and density altitude), cruise, and approach modes.
