Boeing will install Esterline CMC Electronics’ 10.4-inch Class 2 PilotView Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on the B737NG production aircraft ordered by Ethiopian Airways. Boeing has received its first purchase order from the airline for a quantity of 10 B737NGs.
According to the companies, Boeing has developed a common application suite and ground infrastructure for use across Class 1, 2 and 3 EFBs, a move designed to maximize the value of the EFB by including Boeing and Jeppesen applications and data.
“Boeing’s selection of the latest addition to our EFB product portfolio, and the first purchase order for the B737NG production aircraft by Ethiopian Airways is excellent news. This certainly strengthens our growing OEM supplier position in the commercial air transport market,” said Greg Yeldon, Esterline CMC Electronics president.
CMC’s PilotView EFB stays powered during all flight phases and features a large LED-backlit display and a self-contained display-processor.
