[Avionics Today April 28, 2014] Turkish carrier Corendon Airlines has plans to start "flying paperless," according to a new announcement from Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) manufacturer navAero.
Corendon signed a contract with navAero to add its iPad tablet EFB system to its fleet of Boeing 737s. The Turkish airline is adding to the Class 2 EFB solution along with the tablet holder and Power/Data Interface (PDi) module that converts 28VDC aircraft power to measturement that is appropriate for charging the tablet device.
Ridvan Helvaci, engineering manager for Corendon, said the airline selected navAero's system because of the option it provides for expansion on aircraft data connectivity and wireless connectivity from aircraft to operations.
"The initial acceptance and adoption rate of our iPad/Tablet solution by the airline market has exceeded our expectations and we are now seeing that rate as a continuing trend," said Simone Giordano, group president of navAero.
Corendon will start the transition to the navAero EFB later this year.
