Esterline CMC Electronics has announced that its new 12.1 inch Class 2 PilotView electronic flight bag (EFB) has been selected as a factory option on the Bombardier CSeries aircraft family.
In addition, CMC will supply the new PilotView Aircraft Information Server (AIS) that will provide an integrated aircraft information management system. Both the EFB and AIS are options on the CSeries. CMC will also supply as an option dual laptop docking stations that can be interfaced with the EFB.
Building on the PilotView platform, the new EFB – known as the CMA-1612 – features a 12.1 inch LED-backlit display with multi-touch support, and delivers high-end processing capabilities for applications based on its Intel Core i7 processor. The EFB offers versatile aircraft network connectivity, secure file storage and aircraft interface capabilities via the Aircraft Information Server (AIS).
