E-generation avionics ─ whole-process computer monitoring
- The A340s' flight deck is a flawless integration of flight controls and the latest computer technology. The advanced second-generation electronic instrumentation provides the flight crew with the most accurate flight information through an innovative six-color digital display system, replacing the traditional flight instrumentation.
- The side-stick controller transmits the computer-calculated flight operation instruction through the Fly by Wire (FBW) system to the aircraft control surfaces, greatly enhancing control accuracy, stability, and flight efficiency.
- With the A340's unique Flight Management, Guidance, and Envelope Protection System (EMGES), which includes navigation, communication, aircraft performance calculation, auto-pilot, automatic throttle, aircraft system displays and protection, as well as Global Positioning System (GPS) and Future Air Navigation System (FANS), automated flight management is more efficient than ever. All of this is designed for maximum safety by decreasing the workload of the flight crew.
- The Traffic Collision Avoidance System II (TCASII) provides warning of other aircraft in the vicinity and the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) automatically provides the flight crew with information on terrain and structures along the flight path and around airports, safeguarding all-round security.
