First InFlight 911 Service Will Utilizes FAA-Approved iPad

Device Will Be Used To Communicate In-Flight Emergencies

A new service will help airline pilots and staff to alert up to 100 government personnel simultaneously in the event of an inflight crisis will use Apple's iPad tablet device as its primary means of communication.  

The new, proprietary product from InFlight Labs, LLC called 'Inflight 911 Services', scheduled to be released later this year, has selected the FAA-approved iPad as their device of choice. Inflight 911 Services will leverage the aircrafts Wi-Fi Internet connection over the iPad's web browser to establish a top priority connection between aircraft personnel and the Inflight 911 Services administrative team.

With one touch, an airline pilot or flight crew member can access a secure network which gives them immediate 2-way communication between the aircraft and the Inflight 911 Services administrative team. Inflight 911 Services communications are also simultaneously transmitted to the mobile and/or computer devices of 100 "+" government personnel, such as the FAA, Homeland Security, FEMA, FBI, CIA, e911 and related agencies. Inflight 911 Services dynamic web interface stores more than 18 points of critical information in an encrypted format about the flight details, air crew and current crisis situation. New Inflight 911 Services upgrades include: 2,000 character Emergency Messages, a "Live" InFlight Audio and Streaming Video /Recorder, Speech Recognition Software for message entry and embedded Geo-location coordinates in the message body.

"We envision several iPads being available throughout the aircraft from the cockpit through the cabin ready to be used as a source of "air-to-ground" communication during an in-air emergency." Inflight 911 Services can be accessed over any Wi-Fi enabled device but we feel that the iPad is the best choice for the job," states Joseph Bekanich, spokesperson for InFlight Labs.

"Inflight 911 Services is the perfect "Plan B" as an in-flight emergency alert system which will benefit everyone from airline staff to passengers and government officials by bringing numerous key resources together within minutes of an in-air emergency."
