Airbus Offers iPad Electronic Flight Bag Solution

Combining Airbus’ EFB Content With The Versatile Mobile Device

Airbus has become the first aircraft manufacturer to provide its Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) performance-calculating applications for Pilots on iPad. Airlines will soon be able to download the first apps as part of its “FlySmart with Airbus” EFB portfolio from the App Store.

In line with technological innovation, Airbus has developed iPad EFB solutions to provide airlines an alternative to PC operating system EFB devices. Moreover, to integrate Airbus’ EFB software with the iOS operating system, Airbus has worked closely with aviation and technology experts during the concept and development phase. With ‘FlySmart with Airbus’ applications on iPad, pilots will be able to compute performance calculations and also consult Airbus’ Flight Operations Manuals from a light hand-held device.
 
Didier Lux, EVP of Airbus Customer Services says: “Fifteen years ago Airbus was the pioneer in providing the first EFB applications with the goal of creating the ‘paperless’ cockpit. Today we go a step further: By combining our EFB content with the world’s most versatile mobile digital device, the iPad, airline pilots will be able to optimise aircraft performance in the palm of their hand, while obtaining savings in cost, weight and time.”
 
Airbus’ new iPad solution has been tested by Airbus pilots in order to ensure its compliance with Airbus EFB standards. Moreover, Airbus has already ordered iPads for its Flight Test and Training Department who will use of FlySmart with Airbus on iPad as standard practice from now on. Licenses for the EFB apps are available exclusively to Airbus customers.
