Jet Airways has selected navAero to supply its tBag C22 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) for the airline’s fleet of 96 A330s, B737-NGs and ATR 72s.
Jet Airways will begin the implementation of its EFB program in December by deploying the Class 2 systems into 10 of the airline’s B737-NGs aircraft using a navAero STC. This certification is currently going through the approval validation process of India’s regulators. navAero is nearing completion of EASA Supplemental Type Certificates for both the A330 and ATR aircraft types. Upon DGCA’s validation of the STCs, the installations in these Jet Airways fleets will begin in early 2011.
The EFB system deployments will include the navAero-designed UMTS/HSDPA/3G cellular communications module which will enable on-ground data transfer, and the ARINC 429 connectivity module that, when made operational, will allow for the depiction of own-ship position on an airport surface moving map application.
