Aer Lingus installs Flightman electronic flight bag software on Airbus fleet
DUBLIN, 28 Nov. 2012. Aer Lingus officials selected Flightman electronic flight bag (EFB) software to connect the company’s fleet of Airbus aircraft to its existing ground-based systems.
The EFB implementation includes eJourney Log, eReporting, and Content Management integrated with Aer Lingus’ onboard Performance and Weight and Balance calculations module and the Arconics document management solution. It enables data exchange between the cockpit and Aer Lingus’ systems via secure cellular communications; it also is considered a significant step toward a paperless cockpit.
“We have been working towards a paper free cockpit and to that end are very pleased with the efficiencies and benefits associated with EFB software,” says Capt. Eamon Kierans, manager flight operations compliance, Aer Lingus.
The solution working in tandem with the ground-based Flightman EFB management server will enable Aer Lingus operations personnel to access flight data in a timely manner, extract business intelligence, and remotely manage the distribution of content to and from the aircraft, says a representative.
“We have worked closely with Aer Lingus to develop a tailored EFB software solution which enables the seamless exchange of data between the cockpit and their back-office systems. It also provides Aer Lingus with an EFB software platform that supports the inclusion of additional operational processes going forward,” adds Joe McGoldrick, chief executive officer of Flightman.
