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
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Monarch Airlines Limited has selected Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) to provide SmartDisplay(r) Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) for its Airbus A300, A320, A321 and A330 aircraft. Monarch has completed initial installation of the system on an A321 and conducted a successful 2-month in-service demonstration period. SmartDisplay EFBs will be rolled-out across the Airlines' remaining Airbus fleet with planned retrofit completion by the second quarter 2012. Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems team in Burnsville, Minn. is producing the systems and performing integration activities.

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).

Nils Christy, operations director at Monarch Airlines Limited said, "Monarch is a forward-thinking airline, and its selection of the Goodrich system reflects this. In choosing Goodrich, Monarch will enjoy the many operational and cost benefits of its EASA-certified EFBs today, while being ready to upgrade to more advanced functions as future needs dictate."

Jan Mathiesen, vice president of business development, Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems said, "Our team looks forward to working with Monarch Airlines on their fleet-wide implementation of our cockpit data management system. Monarch understands the operational value a 'fully connected' EFB system provides. We're excited to have the opportunity to help them achieve their vision by providing our SmartDisplay EFBs now and well into the future."
