ASIG to Implement Class 2 iPad EFB on Nav Canada Aircraft
The Avionics & Systems Integration Group (ASIG) flyTab team will install a Class 2 electronic flight bag (EFB) on CRJ-200s and Dash 8-100s operated by Nav Canada.
ASIG said its EFB components have STC certifications that enable the iPad EFB to be fully integrated with the aircraft. Nav Canada selected the flyTab pedTray mount, power conditioning module (PCM) for iPad recharging and the aircraft interface module (AIM) to connect the EFB with all aircraft systems and sensors.
“The iPad EFB is a replacement for our current Class 3 EFB that is expensive to maintain. This installation will allow us to maintain our operational efficiency and 'paperless cockpit' at a much lower cost on our CRJ and Dash 8 aircraft with enhanced applications,” said Anthony MacKay, manager of flight operations at Nav Canada.
