HUD assistance


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

Absolutely loving this aircraft, it really is way out there in a class of its own!

I want to make more use of the HUD but can’t really make sense of what I’m seeing on it, especially the 2 circles!

Can anyone give me some help or point me to a good guide/ video tutorial?

Searching for documentation of the HUD, the best I have found so far is a Collins document on smartcockpit.com that while not the exact same model, has the detailed definitions of the symbology that I believe are applicable (for our simulated world in the CL60).  The display and symbology is pretty close (PRI mode).


This guide is located in the CRJ 700 documents (right side).  Excerpt from section 4 follows (a few terms I wanted to read up on).

big circle

This is the flight path vector.

little circle

This is the guidance cue, the HUD's equivalent of the single-cue flight director. The idea is to put the small circle into the big one.

This is the radio altimeter readout.

OMG!  Thank you. I have followed numerous posts and leads trying to get some good documentation. Your link worked and I found so much of what I needed. The note I found on the FD Sync button solved so many issues for me. Thanks. You never know when your input really pays off. This was helpful. :-)
