Luxair to Install navAero EFBs
The navAero tBag C22 computer and display hardware has been chosen as the electronic flight bag (EFB) flight deck hardware by Luxair to equip the carrier’s B737-700/800, Dash 8 Q400 and ERJ145 fleets.
Dual networked installations of the navAero tBagC22 hardware systems, which includes built-in HSDPA/UMTS/GRPS/EDGE for wireless connectivity, will be installed on the aircraft flightdecks. The EFB CPUs will incorporate solid state drives with Windows 7 as the operating system. The installations will also incorporate the navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID) for certified connectivity to aircraft for gathering ARINC 429 and 717 data with QAR functionality.
navAero will be providing Supplemental Type Certification (EASA STC) for each aircraft type. Deployments on the Luxair fleets will start during early Q4, 2012 beginning with the Dash 8 Q400 aircrafts and are scheduled to be completed by early Q2 2013.
