Mycockpitview. The HGS (Head up Guidance System) is such a nice tool! It allows the pilot to look outside while still being able to see all the important fliht parameters such as altitude, speed or heading. Very useful for many situations, and allowing us to land on a Cat III runway with a visibility of only 200m!The HGS (Head up Guidance System) is such a nice tool!

Good morning sun

Getting up early really sucks, especially during the winter when it’s so dark. But when you have the chance to fly eastbound, you can enjoy the moment when the sun is just about to rise above the horizon. For the rest of the flight, you better have good sunglasses 🙂
