Dell OEM and Airbus Develop Mobile Electronic Flight Bag

Airbus logoMost airline passengers board planes with little awareness of  the long list of flight-management tasks preformed each flight.. We pull out a good book, flip through magazines or take a nap.

However Airbus, the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer, was extremely interested in launching a new solution for their customers (the airlines) to help reduce, and in some cases completely replace, the paper-based reference materials found in the pilot’s carry-on flight bag.

Today we announced that Airbus and Dell OEM developed the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) to do just that. The solution is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently with less paper.

Dell OEM will deliver the EFB on Latitude E6330 notebooks directly to Airbus customers (the airlines) for use in cockpits with Airbus software loaded. The notebook/EFB solution includes a customized cable (designed by the OEM team) enabling it to be plugged into a dedicated electrical outlet in the cockpit.

Airbus’ solution required standards-based, tested platforms that allow an easily-replicated process around anywhere in the world.

The Dell systems met all military-standard guidelines to ensure proper avionics certification. Dell’s global support model ensures end users are never without this mission-critical technology.

“Pilots will soon benefit from the very latest portable IT technology for viewing and interacting with their key documentation and information during all stages of the flight. Furthermore, this powerful and robust EFB solution will add value and increase efficiency to their daily work.” - Didier Lux, Airbus Executive Vice President of Customer Services
