Monarch Airlines Selects Goodrich SmartDisplay(r) Electronic Flight Bag System
- Future-ready, upgradeable electronic flight bag system to be installed on UK carrier's Airbus fleet
In addition to providing EFB system certification services for each aircraft type, Goodrich will provide two Goodrich SmartDisplay EFB units, ARINC 828-compliant aircraft interface devices and Carlisle Interconnect Technologies EZMount(r) display mounts and installation kits for each aircraft. This advanced EFB portfolio, known as Goodrich's cockpit data management system, provides extensive connectivity to aircraft data networks and systems, allowing Monarch to maximize EFB utility and the associated operational savings. The upgradeable system could also enable the airline to run emerging "Type C" EFB applications in the future, such as controller-pilot data link communications (CPDLC) and ADS-B in-cockpit display of traffic information (CDTI).
