Covers Dual Installation For Paperless Cockpit Operations
Esterline CMC Electronics' (CMC) Class 2 PilotView CMA-1410 10.4 inch Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) has been certified by EASA for installation by PMVE Engineering Design Organization of France on the A330-200/300 aircraft. The certification covers a dual PilotView EFB installation enabling paperless cockpit operations, including aircraft data, procedures manuals and interactive electronic charts. The EFB interfaces with the avionics systems (FMS and ADIRS) and with the cockpit door surveillance system.
“Our PilotView EFB is starting to show airlines how to save costs and the certification by PMVE will enable airlines to capitalize on cockpit computer technologies to increase fleet profitability,” said Greg Yeldon, president, Esterline CMC Electronics.
The CMC PilotView EFB system offers a wide range of features and field-proven applications that include charting, electronic documentation, en-route real-time weather moving maps, camera surveillance, aircraft data monitoring and reporting as well as real-time ACARS messaging over VHF or satellite services. In addition, CMC offers an advanced terrain awareness application.
The PilotView EFB system offers one-touch situational awareness and a film-on-glass touchscreen for superior readability. Certified for Class 2 and Class 3 usage, PilotView is the electronic flight bag preferred by OEMs. In addition, over 30 STCs are available for the PilotView EFB on aircraft ranging from the Gulfstream GlV/GV, the Bombardier Challenger and Global Express/XRS, to the Boeing 737. PilotView is offered as a standard option by ATR, by Dassault on the Falcon 900, 2000 and 7X, by Embraer for the Legacy 600/650 and E-170/190 programs, by Bombardier for the CRJ700/900/1000, and by Boeing for the Next-Generation B-737s and BBJs.
