Milviz Preview SR-71 With PVD Implementation

Milviz SR 71 PVD Preview FSElite

In a quick little post to their Facebook page, Milviz showed off the latest preview of their upcoming SR-71A, this time with implementation of the PVD!

For those who don’t find themselves buried in the SR-71 flight manual in their free time, I’ll give you a basic rundown of what the PVD is and how it’s used. PVD stands for Peripheral Vision Display, and is a device used for attitude orientation at night. The device projects a red, thinly focused, laser-generated line on the instrument panel that is parallel to the horizon. While this device can serve as a rudimentary roll and attitude indicator, the main purpose is for it to aid in overall spatial orientation when flying the aircraft at night, something that was previously a major issue in the SR-71. Those wanting to find more information on the PVD, or the SR-71 in general, can read the full and declassified flight manual.

The Milviz SR-71 certainly looks to be progressing well, with the last shots we’ve seen showing off the gorgeous night lighting in the cockpit. Milviz hashatags on the post indicate that the aircraft is now in-game, so hopefully more information on the aircraft’s state will be available soon. When we have any new information concerning the SR-71, we’ll try to be the first to share! (we also plan to review the aircraft when it releases, so stay tuned for that!)

From a young boy enamored by the size of airliners, to a giddy flight student on his first flight at the controls of a plane, I'm a stereotypical aviation enthusiast. From the instant I felt the forces of takeoff, I was hooked and would start down a long path of gobbling up as much knowledge as I could about planes. Currently training for a PPL, and aiming to study to become a dispatcher, aviation has and will continue to hold my heart for years to come. | View My Specs

You guys should have a look at the cockpit description by Rich Graham, former Wing Commander, where he explains this strange device. It’s all in YT.
While we are at it, please also watch some Brian Shul’s talks also in YT, where he tells some interesting stories of the Habu.

I love Brian! Became friends with him meeting at airhsows when I was younger and even got some original Habu patches and such from him and Walter. His LA Speed Story is probably one of the funniest

I really hope that this will have shared cockpit capabilities.

I actually asked Milviz about this a while back, and they said they are indeed looking into it, as well as automating the rear pit duties if you decide not to fly shared. Hope this helps!
