EasyJet is considering fitting the 12 Boeing 737-300s it has on order with head-up displays (HUDs), which would allow them to be operated in Category IIIa conditions from runways equipped only for Category I. The aircraft will be equipped with enhanced ground-proximity warning systems and will probably have Airborne Communications-Addressing and Reporting Systems, says Reed Aerospace's on-line service, Air Transport Intelligence. The airline would be the first in the UK to operate with a HUD system in regular service.
