Ryan Int'l "Redefining Industry Standard" With New MHD
While the news from AEA 2003 is perceptibly
upbeat, little of it has been really "new..." until Friday
morning's announcement, from Ryan International, of a novel
Multi-Hazard Display System. According to Ryan, "Conventional
aviation wisdom says it’s best to consolidate all flight
information onto one large display."
Ryan International has a different vision, and is
introducing a new Multi-Hazard Display. This 3ATI is the only
display in the industry dedicated solely to displaying hazard
"The industry is moving toward putting all information on a
single screen. While that’s a lot better than having to scan
lots of dials and gauges, it can be difficult to isolate the most
immediate hazard information in critical situations," said Bruce
Bunevich, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
"Ryan’s Multi-Hazard Display places essential hazard
information on a dedicated display, offering pilots what they need:
easy-to-read, easy-to-interpret real time information on the most
immediate flight hazard. The result is an increased situational
awareness, and therefore increased safety."
The Multi-Hazard Display is designed for use with the Ryan
9900BX Traffic Advisory System. Ryan is in development with the
manufacturers of other hazard detection avionics to display their
weather and terrain information as well. The display is designed to
show up to three types of hazard information at one time using
multi-view mode technology.

information from hazard partners simultaneously.
- Is a lightweight, compact, standard-size display that can be
installed easily in most corporate and general aviation aircraft,
