The second generation glass cockpit is now being developed following the success and acceptance of the Electronic Flight Instrument Systems (EFIS) in the aviation marketplace. Along with this new generation of displays, comes new symbology which is replacing some of the conventional displays now found in the cockpit. This paper outlines the history of the current display symbology and describes what is currently being implemented in the new systems. The final portion of the paper takes a look at the next generation symbology which is currently under study.
