Airbus introduces iPad Electronic flight bag applications for pilots

FARNBOROUGH, England, 10 July 2012. Airbus has upgraded its Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) performance-calculating applications to be available 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.

Airbus has developed iPad EFB solutions to provide airlines an alternative to PC operating system EFB devices. In the effort 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 hand-held device.

Fifteen years ago Airbus helped provide EFB applications with the goal of creating the paperless cockpit. This release takes that concept one step further by allowing airline pilots to optimize aircraft performance on the iPad tablet.

Airbus' new iPad option has been tested by Airbus pilots in order to ensure its compliance with Airbus EFB standards. Airbus has already ordered iPads for its flight test and training department, who will use FlySmart with Airbus on iPad as standard practice from now on. Licenses for the EFB apps will be available exclusively to Airbus customers.
