Pegasus Airlines has signed a deal with Scandinavian Avionics (SA) to use the company’s electronic flight bag (EFB) solution on its Boeing 737NG aircraft.
SA designs, manufactures and certifies tailored EFB solutions in-house, with Pegasus choosing to use two ruggedized 10.1 inch Panasonic tablets and Scandinavian Avionics’ tablet power solution on the new additions to its fleet.
“An EFB solution benefits any airline or aircraft operator by reducing weight on board and by saving time on updating the physical charts in the flight bag as well as gaining operational benefits with connectivity,” explained Michael Truelson, SA’s President.
“As opposed to other EFB solutions with expensive hardware and high certification costs, we have developed a future-proof concept that enables the aircraft operator to use commercial windows based tablet as the EFB display. The developments within commercial tablets are running way faster than the traditional EFB hardware and with our solution the operator can continuously upgrade the EFB display to the most current model at low certification costs.”
“Streamlining our operation, the utilisation of new technology is important in optimising our daily processes, both today and in the future as we continue to expand,” added Ridvan Goktay, technical consultant for Pegasus.
