Monarch Airlines selected Goodrich's SmartDisplay Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) for its Airbus A300, A320, A321 and A330 aircraft.
Monarch has completed initial installation of the system on an A321 and conducted a successful 2-month in-service demonstration period. SmartDisplay EFBs will be rolled-out across the airlines' remaining Airbus fleet with planned retrofit completion by the second quarter 2012. Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems team in Burnsville, Minn. is producing the systems and performing integration activities.
In addition to providing EFB system certification services for each aircraft type, Goodrich will provide two Goodrich SmartDisplay EFB units, ARINC 828-compliant aircraft interface devices and Carlisle Interconnect Technologies EZMount display mounts and installation kits for each aircraft. The system could also enable the airline to run emerging "Type C" EFB applications in the future, such as controller-pilot data link communications (CPDLC) and ADS-B in-cockpit display of traffic information (CDTI), Goodrich said.
