Fan Air Ltd, the Ukrainian airline established at the beginning of 2018, has signed a five-year contract with Lufthansa Systems use the Lido/mPilot navigation solution.
The solution was implemented in the space of just two weeks after the contract was signed.
Yakovanko Oleksandr, chief of flight safety department at Fan Air Ltd, revealed that the product was recommended by another Ukrainian airline. “We looked at the solution and were immediately impressed by the advantages it offers. Since the implementation, our pilots can access all the necessary navigation maps and documents on their iPads from anywhere, at any time.”
Lido/mPilot is Lido/Navigation’s charting solution for the iPad. The application contains all important route information, such as altitude data, airways and airport data. The system can access relevant avionics data such as GPS information, speed and the aircraft’s target direction, thus enabling it to display position and orientation of the aircraft on the integrated Airport Moving Map (Lido/AMM).
The Lido charts are generated directly from the certified Lido/FMS navigation database and meet the highest standard of precision and quality. The charting standard was developed by navigation experts in collaboration with pilots, licensed dispatchers and IT specialists. The charts are to-scale and include terrain and topographical data. They also depict true-to-scale topographic information and contain standardised colour coding. All these features help to increase pilots’ situation awareness.
