Malmö Aviation has selected navAero to supply its tBag C22 Class 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) system for the airline’s fleet of Avro RJ70s, 85s and 100s. Malmö Aviation will begin the implementation of the EFB program during the second-half of 2011 deploying the navAero Class 2 systems into all of the airline’s Avro aircraft using a new navAero EASA STC.
The system will include the navAero-designed HSDPA//UMTS/EDGE/GPRS wireless cellular communications module to enable on-ground data transfer, and the ARINC 429 connectivity module that will allow for the depiction of own-ship position on an airport surface area moving map application. In terms of other EFB uses, Malmö Aviation will be implementing a variety of applications including performance software provided by BAE Systems. The airline will also be using the EFB platform for document viewing as well as for displaying aeronautical charts as an extended service from their current charting provider.
