navAero announces the tBag™C22 Electronic Flight Bag system Supplementary Type Certificate (STC) 0010014973 for Boeing 737-300/400/500/600/700/800/900 series aircraft has achieved validation by Transport Canada.
The EASA STC certification has been entered into the national index of STC that have been reviewed and accepted by Transport Canada for installation of Canadian-registered aircrafts.
navAero customer Thomson Airways, part of TUI UK & Ireland, required both EASA and TCCA validation of the navAero STC so to enable seamless leasing and operation of its aircrafts deployed with the navAero EFB system to Canadian-based Sunwing Airlines. Through the support of the navAero engineering resource, Scandinavian Avionics Design GMBH, the EASA STC 0010014973 was efficiently and seamlessly processed and approved by Transport Canada.
The STC architecture consists of cross-connected dual tBag C22 EFB systems with the tPad™ series displays at both the pilot and co-pilot stations. All of the tPad series display are included in this STC: Models 1100, 1200, 1500 and 2000. The EFB system also includes ARINC 429 and 717 data connectivity to onboard systems through the navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID). The EFB system also provides wireless communications capabilities for on-ground data transfer through either 3G or 802.11b/g.
navAero Group Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Mr. Simone Giordano, states “This Transport Canada validation of our EASA STC is testament to the detail and depth of our certification capabilities and engineering documentation. We are pleased to be able to provide these types of regulatory approval services to our customers that give them with the means by which they can realize seamless operations and management their fleets. This last STC achievement increases the number of countries not directly under EASA or FAA jurisdiction that approved our EFB design and certification; to date, TCCA (Canada), ANAC (Brazil), GCAA (UAE), DGCA (India) are among those.”
