Put An iPad In Your Fokker

Electronic Flight Bag Hardware And Mounting Solution Introduced By Fokker Services

A hardware and mounting solution for Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) technology designed for the iPad has been introduced by Fokker Services, with Swedish cargo carrier Amapola receiving approval from the Swedish CAA for a Class 2B EFB in its fleet of Fokker 50s. The system includes a Navtech chart library, setting a new standard in portability and convenience for pilots.

"This product is a sterling example Fokker Services' goal to create innovative, affordable modifications for the retrofit market," said Tom Milder, Fokker Services Director Modifications.

Fokker Services says the new iPad solution has been extensively tested by Amapola pilots, who have noted reduced workload, significantly reduced turnaround times and flight preparation time, and possibilities for incorporating last minute runway changes. Further, the need for most flight paper manuals is eliminated through the inclusion of Navtech's 31,000 page charts library, which was introduced in an iPad application, Navtech iCharts, in November.

"We see the iPad as a unique opportunity to further lighten the load on pilots and airlines" says Mike Hulley, Navtech CEO. "Navtech iCharts has captured the attention of airlines around the world for its convenience and truly user-friendly format. It's the kind of innovation that's a win for everyone."

The iPad EFB Solution is EASA certified. It requires no expensive ICT infrastructure and has a power reserve of up to eight hours. Further, easy installation on flight decks makes introduction within an entire fleet possible within weeks. While the iPad EFB solution was introduced on Amapola's Fokker 50 aircraft, the company says it is also available for Bombardier, Airbus and Boeing aircraft.
