TCCA issued the STC for the t-Bag navAero C2² EFB, based on the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval of the system. The STC features a cross-connected dual setup, with t-Pad series displays at both pilot and co-pilot stations, navAero said. 
 
The EFB provides on-ground data transfer through 3G or 802.11b/g, and includes ARINC 429 and 717 data connectivity to onboard systems with the navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID). 
 

"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," said Simone Giordano, vice president of sales and marketing at navAero.
