EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedVirtual HUD takes LoPresti innovation award
By James Wynbrandt
 
A low cost HUD (Heads Up Display) designed to project an image onto the backside of an aircraft’s propeller took the honors as the third winner of the Roy LoPresti Innovation in Aviation Award, LoPresti Aviation announced Monday.

The HUD provides critical flight information to pilots while they look straight ahead outside the aircraft.

According to LoPresti Aviation CEO RJ Siegel, the creative thinking of designer Bill Steele met the three criteria established for the award, which is named after the late designer and speed maven.

To meet the requirements, Siegel explained, the product must be innovative; it must be practical; and it must offer a seamless user experience.

“Bill Steele’s Virtual HUD passes all these tests with flying colors,” Siegel said.

The Virtual HUD and other products made by his company are on display at the booth #4101 in Hangar D.
