Braathens’ EFB Receives Trial Approval

Braathens Regional has received a trial approval from the Swedish Airworthiness Authority for an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Class 2 System for the iPad.

“This is a big step towards a paperless cockpit”, says Anders Fredriksson, NPH Flight Operations Braathens Regional, by replacing the paper manuals the EFB system can offer environmental improvements, as well as fuel savings for each flight. Braathens has equipped 140 pilots with an iPad as part of the EFB system, whilst a full fleet of 17 aircraft are being modified to include cockpit-mounting with power supplies that will enable pilots to use the iPad inflight. Initially, the Web Manuals Reader app will allow aircrew to easily access company manuals, crew bulletins and forms.
