Arconics Customer Focus – Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific has selected Arconics AeroDocs for installation on all connected aircraft. The best-in-class digital library will be available on Class 3 EFBs on the flight deck and will be used to deliver documents and manuals into the Airbus A350 paperless cockpit.

AeroDocs enables pilots to access and search manuals and documents, allowing fast search, real-time updating, and offline access. Cathay Pacific administrators on the ground get real-time visibility and control of the distribution process, ensuring that all aircraft are updated and that all pilots have access to the current version of documents. Arconics will also integrate AeroDocs into existing Cathay Pacific systems to minimise the operational overhead and assure consistency across all systems.
