Aircraft Management Technologies (AMT) has been selected by ATR to add new software solutions to its Class 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), all aimed at removing paper from the cockpit and reducing operational crew workload by ensuring single point data capture.
The extended EFB package offer will include additional applications to record and compute key operational information onboard, facilitate the data transfer on and off the aircraft and provide a ground based interface for the management and reporting of EFB data. The solution incorporates the eJourney Log, eTechlog and Aircraft Content Manager applications developed by AMT as part of the Flightman suite of EFB applications.
Commenting on ATR’s extended EFB offer, Luigi Mollo, vice-president commercial in customer services, remarked, “The new software available in the ATR’s extended EFB will provide ATR pilots with the most modern tools to record and exchange data with airlines’ back office systems, directly from the cockpit. This will clearly contribute to ease their tasks and save time. As a consequence, the extended EFB will remove paper from the flight deck and allow airlines to streamline their operational processes.”
