Monarch Airlines have selected the Flightman EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) software to provide a cockpit data solution to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs. Monarch Airlines will install the Flightman EFB software suite of applications across their entire fleet of aircraft.

The Flightman platform will connect to Monarch Airlines’ existing ground-based enterprise systems using secure 3G communications technologies. The core set of applications include eJourney Log, Electronic Flight Folder, eReporting and Aircraft Data Management together with the ground based Flightman EFB management system. These applications will be installed on Class 2 EFB devices.

Commenting on the selection of Flightman, Nils Christy, Operations Director at Monarch Airlines, said “Flightman will enable Monarch Airlines to achieve a paperless cockpit and streamline our operational processes. This will allow our aircraft to operate to maximum efficiency and achieve significant cost savings.”

This EFB software solution manages both the delivery of cockpit data and content between the aircraft and Monarch Airlines’ ground systems.  It also allows flight crew to retrieve and submit pre-flight and post-flight information directly from the cockpit. The elimination of paper from the flight deck, reduces operational crew workload by ensuring single point data capture and ensures all information is readily available to flight crew, flight ops, engineers and management in quasi real time.

Commenting on the commencement of the project, Joe McGoldrick, Chief Executive Officer of Flightman said “We are really excited about delivering an EFB solution to Monarch Airlines that meets their operational objectives to streamline the flow of cockpit data on and off the aircraft. It will also allow Monarch Airlines to achieve significant reductions in costs within their current operation.”

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.
