VIDEO: Lufthansa to make life easier for pilots with FlyNet

Civil aircraft operators have long discussed using in-flight connectivity for operational benefits such as real-time electronic flight bag (EFB) applications. Lufthansa, which recently re-launched its FlyNet high-speed Internet service on overseas flights, is about to make real-time EFB a reality, and in turn make life easier for its pilots. Lufthansa captain Andreas Ritter – who heads up the carrier’s EFB activities – explains the initiative in the following video:

    I’ve been preaching the need for internet access to cockpit crews for years. I’m happy to see this video footage, and Lufthansa taking the lead with its implementation.

    Thanks for the report!

    I am wondering if the Wi-Fi antenna behind is intentional or not?

    Sharing is great, but how will the captain know the data is real? “Man in the middle” attacks are very common on the Internet which could cause problems if the pilots are counting on this data to make decisions for hundreds of people. Of course, there are security systems to prevent some of this, but that is a lot of trust to place when I am sitting in the back of a plane…

    And who is to say that the pilot gets the connection? What if there are 54 people, including us lowly people in “coach” who are watching the latest flashmob on YouTube? How is Lufthansa going to make sure that I don’t keep his data from reaching him?

    I guess I am trying to figure out if I trust the guy in the front using the same thing I am to get information. I feel safer knowing they have some super secret machine up front only for them.
