Following American Airlines' order for GEC-Marconi's HUD 2020 head-up display for 75 new Boeing 737-800s in January (Flight International, 4-10 February), the UK company has delivered the first production-standard examples to the American Airlines Flight Academy in Dallas, Texas. It will be installed in a simulator, and has integrated another example in a 737-200 in Mojave, California, where flight testing is due to start. Certification is due in December. The Next Generation 737 HUD certification programme will start in September.
