Lufthansa Systems to offer iPad EFB
Published: April 25, 2011
Lufthansa Systems said it will launch a solution transforming iPads into full-fledged Electronic Flight Bags “centered around an advanced version” of its Lido/iRouteManual. The iPad EFB is slated to become available in the current quarter.
The suite of applications will consist of three modules: The Lido/iRouteManual and a document viewer—both in the form of iPad apps—and a document management system in the form of a Web service. “Further modules are already under consideration,” LHS said.
Lido/iRouteManual will give pilots three update options. “Pilots can either update their entire airport library by the click of one button, only update the charts in their clipboard for their next flight, or update an individual airport—depending on the time and connectivity available,” LHS stated.
