Leading Global Enterprise Integrated EFB solution now supported on iPad

Dublin, Ireland (2nd of May 2012) – Flightman today announced the availability of its award winning Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) applications suite for Apple’s iPad range of tablet devices.

The iPad has revolutionized the portable device market and has already established a solid foothold in the Aviation sector. In contrast to the many EFB “point” applications available today, Flightman offers a fully integrated EFB solution which is tightly integrated with the airlines’ operations systems and has the capacity to drive iPad adoption at an even greater level.

The Flightman EFB Solution Suite allows airlines to achieve optimized regulatory compliance, total operational efficiency, enhanced in-cabin passenger service and revenue opportunities by seamlessly connecting and integrating aircraft within airlines’ IT infrastructure. The company develops Aviation Software Solutions, which are incorporated in a Service to connect the aircraft to company systems and drive productivity and operational improvements.

This new addition to the Flightman product suite enables airlines to deploy Flightman EFB software applications on iOS or Windows based EFB Class 1 and Class 2 devices. Airline users will be able to connect to their ground-based enterprise systems using secure cellular, wireless and satellite communications. This EFB software solution meets all industry standards and manages the delivery of cockpit and cabin data between the crew and airlines’ backend business and operations systems.

Commenting on the iPad release, Joe McGoldrick, Chief Executive Officer of Flightman said, “Flightman on the iPad complements our existing product offering allowing airlines to install EFB applications on either crew or aircraft assigned devices or even a combination of both. The ability to deploy a common platform approach irrespective of hardware provides for system wide information sharing between crew, aircraft and operations, thereby facilitating the streamlining of processes and the realization of significant cost savings. We believe Flightman is the first true Enterprise level EFB suite of applications available for the iPad and we expect to see phenomenal interest in the aviation marketplace”.
