Qantas Airways will be the launch customer for the Airbus iPad electronic flight bag (EFB) “FlySmart with Airbus” application. The airframe manufacturer first announced its new performance-calculating iPad EFB application at the 2012 Farnborough Air Show, and has been testing the EFB with Qantas pilots since then.
    “We’re pleased to be working with Airbus on this innovative new EFB application,” said David Oliver, head of flight technical operations at Qantas. “Qantas is committed to new technology that reduces paperwork in the cockpit and improves access to information for our pilots, and this app very much meets that requirement.”
   The “FlySmart with Airbus” application gives pilots the ability to compute aircraft performance calculations and communicate with Airbus flight operations manuals right from the cockpit.
   Qantas will be introducing the iPad EFB to all of its pilots for use on commercial flights through early 2013.

Airbus Providing EFB Calculations for iPad

Airbus on Wednesday said it is now providing its Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) performance-calculating applications for Pilots on iPad. Airlines will soon be able to download the first apps as part of its “FlySmart with Airbus” EFB portfolio from the App Store, the airframe manufacturer said.

Airbus said it has developed iPad EFB products to provide airlines an alternative to PC operating system EFB devices. The company said it worked closely with aviation and technology experts during the concept and development phase to integrate Airbus’ EFB software with the iOS operating system. With "FlySmart with Airbus" applications on iPad, pilots will be able to compute performance calculations and also consult Airbus’ Flight Operations Manuals.
  “Fifteen years ago Airbus was the pioneer in providing the first EFB applications with the goal of creating the ‘paperless’ cockpit. Today we go a step further: By combining our EFB content with the world’s most versatile mobile digital device, the iPad, airline pilots will be able to optimise aircraft performance in the palm of their hand, while obtaining savings in cost, weight and time," Didier Lux, said executive vice president of Airbus Customer Services.
  Airbus said it has already ordered iPads for its Flight Test and Training Department who will use of FlySmart with Airbus on iPad as standard practice from now on.
