Euroatlantic Airways chooses Fokker Services' EFB solution for iPad for its entire fleet of various Boeing aircraft

Euroatlantic Airways from Portugal has chosen Fokker Services as partner to install the EFB solution for iPad® in its entire fleet of various Boeing aircraft.

The EFB solution for iPad® is EASA certified (Class 2 Type B), requires no expensive ICT infrastructure and has a power reserve of up to eight hours. Easy installation ensures aircraft can be converted with very limited downtime at a cost that is incomparable to anything else on the market.

The main reason for Euroatlantic to chose the EFB solution for iPad® is cost savings. Once the installation is accomplished, the time consuming and costly distribution of paper updates on navigation charts and aircraft manuals will be history, says Tomaz Metello CEO Euroatlantic Airways.

We are delighted to have been selected by Euroatlantic Airways to provide this innovative and cost saving modification. This proofs Fokker Services is successful in providing this modification on various regional, narrow body and wide body Aircraft types, says Heino van der Laan, VP Marketing & Sales Fokker Services.

The EFB solution for iPad® has been developed and tested with the pilot in mind. It is mobile, user friendly and most of all personal to its owner. Information can be stored, catalogued and bookmarked. The touch screen makes browsing and annotating quick and easy whilst flight plans can be studied prior to boarding. The one-click update automatically replaces outdated content with new versions via the internet. Keeping pilots updated and informed and improving lines of communication within an organization.
