Flightman announce the successful installation of their Electronic Flight Bag Software on the Aer Lingus’ fleet of Airbus aircraft.
Flightman worked with Aer Lingus in the development of the business case demonstrating a compelling return on investment for the deployment of their EFB solution. Aer Lingus selected the Flightman EFB software product to connect their fleet of Airbus aircraft to their existing ground based systems. The solution includes eJourney Log, eReporting and Content Management integrated with Aer Lingus’ onboard Performance and Weight and Balance calculations module and the Arconics document management solution. It enables the exchange of data between the cockpit and Aer Lingus’ systems, via secure cellular communications technologies, and is a significant step towards a paperless cockpit. The solution together with the ground based Flightman EFB management server will also allow Aer Lingus’ operations personnel to access flight data in a timely manner, extract business intelligence and remotely manage the distribution of content to and from the aircraft.
At the commencement of the EFB software implementation, Capt. Eamon Kierans, Manager Flight Operations Compliance, Aer Lingus, commented “We have been working towards a paper free cockpit and to that end are very pleased with the efficiencies and benefits associated with EFB software. We look forward to working with Flightman into the future.”
Commenting on the deployment Joe McGoldrick, Chief Executive Officer of Flightman said “Our aim is to deliver proven EFB software technology that delivers cost savings across airlines’ operational processes. We have worked closely with Aer Lingus to develop a tailored EFB software solution which enables the seamless exchange of data between the cockpit and their back-office systems. It also provides Aer Lingus with an EFB software platform that supports the inclusion of additional operational processes going forward.”
Flightman, the award winning, provider of EFB software solutions, has continued to expand its operations in the international aviation industry and boasts an impressive customer portfolio of charter, commercial and cargo airlines.
