  • ANALYSIS: Cockpits nearly all paperless but manufacturers still face dilemma

    News | 10 Sep 2014 10:58 | David Learmount

    ​The manufacturers intend cockpits to be paperless soon. Airbus, for example, says it intends its aircraft to be completely paperless - therefore totally EFB-dependent - within two years. But they all face a permanent dilemma about what interface they should choose. Boeing with its 787 and Airbus with the A380 and A350 have onboard information systems (OIS) that are fully integrated with the aircraft’s avionics, and the need for pilots to use tablet computers during the flight has been eliminated. Everything the pilots need for flight, including manuals and charts, is there.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Cockpits-nearly-all-paperless-but-manufacturers-still-face-dilemma-403065/

  • ANALYSIS: Electronic flightbags come of age but still require pilot discipline

    News | 09 Sep 2014 09:46 | David Learmount

    ​Only a few years ago all pilots carried their trademark flightbags – large, black box-like briefcases. These were usually covered in stickers showing destinations, aircraft types and the logos of airlines and flight training organisations. One glance at a well-stickered bag provided an instant guide to the owner’s age and professional career.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Electronic-flightbags-come-of-age-but-still-require-pilot-discipline-403064/
