Dassault Snags Bendix Trophy For EASy Flight Deck
On the system’s first anniversary, Dassault Falcon’s EASy Flight Deck technology was named recipient of one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, the Honeywell Bendix Trophy for Aviation Safety. The Flight Safety Foundation presented the award to Dassault Aviation at the International Air Safety Seminar for the EASy flight deck. Dassault began developing the EASy flight deck in the mid-‘90s after identifying a need for enhanced situational awareness in the cockpit. The first EASy-equipped Falcon 900EX was delivered in December of 2003. EASy is certificated on the Falcon 2000EX, 900EX, 900DX and 7X. "The EASy cockpit is far more than just a cockpit update. It is a revolutionary presentation of critical flight data designed to reduce the likelihood of 'misunderstandings' between pilots and avionics," said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet Corp. "The momentum of the 2000EX EASy has been very gratifying to us. With the exception of the 7x, which is in another category, we expect the 2000EX EASy to be our best selling aircraft for the next 3-4 years," said Rosanvallon.
