Flexjet Receives FAA Approval for iPad EFBs
Richardson, Texas-based aircraft management company Flexjet has received conditional authorization from FAA for the use of iPads as electronic flight bags (EFBs).
The conditional authorization applies to fractional flights conducted under 14 CFR 91, Subpart K.
Flexjet said it will make the complete transition from paper to the iPad electronic navigational charts on its fleet of Bombardier business jets in January.
"Flexjet's interest in Electronic Flight Bags extends beyond the use of just navigational charts in flight. Looking to the future, our ultimate goal is to integrate a number of aspects of our offering into the device to increase productivity and eliminate costs, while improving on the already stellar customer service for which we are known,” said Deanna White, president at Flexjet.
