The need to have processes connected in real time is fuelling a digitization trend in airlines, focused towards maximising the opportunities for improved operational efficiencies. The Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is therefore a 'capstone' of pilot and aircraft-related digital processes.
Airlines face a number of practical challenges when digitizing their operations. An electronic solution needs to be kept updated through complicated connection possibilities, as out-of-date operational data would render the information useless. An EFB must be compatible with mixed fleets, and still able to meet all requirements, while any data exchanged or processes followed must be audited, which is challenging due to the constant motion of the airline crews.
SITAONAIR EFB can address these challenges.
The EFB is a digital portfolio of the services and documentation that your pilots need to operate in an efficient, connected manner.
Mitigating the need for cumbersome, paper-based documentation, the EFB provides a highly transportable platform for pilots and works across mixed fleets.
A real-time connection through EFB means that your pilots are in communication with the ground at all times. Your pilots will have real-time weather information, route planning applications and aircraft health information, as well as a communication channel, at their fingertips.
When combined, these services can help your pilots manage disruptions across the air travel ecosystem, leading to reduced turbulence, better timekeeping and ultimately a safer, better passenger experience.
Features and benefits
Eases aircraft and ground system integration
SITAONAIR also provides AIRCOM Connect, which allows the EFB to safely utilize available connections (ACARS VHF & Satellite or IP connections such as GX, SBB etc) to exchange updates inflight.
Suite of fully integrated modules
Provide your pilots with the following modules to help them manage flights in one easy package: Library; Reports; Weight and balance; Briefing with weather, NOTAMS and other company operational information; Operational Flight Plan (OFP); Performance; Charts integration (Jeppesen, Lufthansa Systems or NavTech); Tools; Electronic checklists plus a BookBase ground system that automatically distributes operational data to the pilots’ EFB.
Eases pilot workload
Eliminate the need for paper-based documentation and provide the pilots with software designed to streamline their workflow.
