Boeing 747 Electronic Flight Bag

Boeing 747 Electronic Flight Bag

The popularity of Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) is evidence of the numerous advantages, including reduction of paper and clutter in the cockpit, reduced cost and workload required to update documents, and better operational utilisation with onboard and real-time performance calculations. A customer needed installation of EFBs in the cockpit, which required the addition of displays on the flight deck, the installation of an Applications Server Unit (ASU) into the avionics bay, and an Accessible Data Unit (ADU) for data loading. The client approached GVH Aerospace with the challenge of integrating the EFB into the Boeing 747 aircraft.

GVH Aerospace designed the sliding mounts to secure the EFB displays on both sides of the flight deck, to lock in both stowed and deployed positions to meet the regulatory requirements. The EFB was integrated with the existing printer on the upper deck desk and the existing Flight Management System to provide latitude/longitude position overlay. GVH Aerospace also designed the provisions for external camera inputs into the EFB for monitoring purposes. The modification was approved as an EASA STC and now includes the Boeing 747-400, -400F, -100, -200B/C/F and -300 variants.
