Our Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution features seamless access to Flight Crew Operation Manuals (FCOMs), airline documentation, flight briefing documentation, announcements and a number of custom tools designed to simplify information that pilots regularly require. With our iPad solution, pilots are quickly synchronized documentation based on their aircraft type, rostered destination or other grouping that an airline requires to distribute specific information to pilots. An administration back-end tool allows documentation teams to schedule and manage documentation distribution as well as tag documents that require confirmation.
Pilot Announcements are managed by the back-end EFB administration console. Allows for pilot-related announcement to be sent to a custom group of pilots, aircraft-specific pilots or broadcast to all pilots.
Weather report feeds with up-to-date weather information for the cities that pilot is flying to.
Synchronisation status allows for pilots to view the number of documents that have been downloaded for offline viewing. It also allows for pilots to update their documentation by clicking on the synchronise button or check for updates that haven’t been downloaded.
Powerful, Yet Simple Search
Our document search engine can be configured to search for key phrases in current document as well as searching all documents for a keyword or phrase.
Boeing & Airbus Aircraft Manuals
Flight Crew Operational Manuals (FCOM) as well as any documentation published by the airline for pilot viewing can be accessed and viewed on the EFB application. The documentation has multiple viewing and annotation capabilities allowing for pilots to bookmark pages, view in profile or landscape, adjust brightness, browse manuals in thumbnail view, add comments, search for text, or make freehand markings.
Documentation status and versions on any device can be viewed by compliance officials at any time to ensure that the documentation on an iPad is current and up-to-date. The version of each FCOM document is shown as well as the date in which is has been downloaded to the device.
Read confirmations can be assigned to documents by administrators. Any file marked as requiring a read confirmation will appear in the read confirmations list. Pilots can confirm that they have read a document. The confirmation is sent to the back-end administrative tool that can track which pilots in a fleet have confirmed reading marked documents.
A timeline-styled information panel displays documentation updates in chronological order. Pilots can see everything that they need to know about changes to documentation that have occurred in one place without having to review all of the documentation. They can also access updated content within a specific manual by clicking on the timeline brief relating to a specific update.
Forms that were previously filled out manually are now all accessible from our EFB app. Pilots can access the forms required by the airline, fill them out and submit them. When offline, submitted forms are cached (stored locally) until an interconnection can be established. Submitted form data is sent to the back-end administrative application which allows administrators to view all submitted forms.
Web Access Links
Airlines can customize the EFB app by adding links to sites that pilots are frequently required to access. These sites can be configured by the system administrator and allow for single-sign-on access to web applications or to provide pilots with easy access to sites that do not require authentication.
Back-End Administrative Software
An extensive back-end administrative tool developed from the ground-up with the specific needs of airline EFB documentation. Attributes (or meta data) can be created and associated with documents or folders. These attributes affect who the documents are distributed to, if read confirmations are required from pilots and how the document can be searched. The tool features an intuitive user interface and extensive reporting. Documentation teams can easily track which pilots in a fleet have downloaded content and how content has been accessed.
