Astro-Med announces Apple AirPrint certification for ToughWriter 5 airborne printer

Astro-Med, Inc. announced today that its ToughWriter 5 Wi-Fi printer has been AirPrint™ certified by Apple Inc. With this certification, pilots can print approach plates, weather maps and other graphics wirelessly from iPads and other iOS devices. The Company made the announcement at the 51st Paris Air Show.

“We are proud to have worked with Apple to become the first flight deck printer to be AirPrint certified. With this certification, our printers provide even more value to pilots,” said Tom Carll, Vice President & General Manager of Astro-Med's airborne products.

The use of the AirPrint certified ToughWriter 5 is not limited to the flight deck of commercial aircraft. Astro-Med printers also can be installed in the cabin, offering the benefits of wireless page printing capabilities to the crew and passengers. For example, iOS devices used as part of the in-flight entertainment systems could wirelessly print maintenance data, receipts and passenger manifests to Astro-Med airborne printers.

“Apple AirPrint Certification for Astro-Med's ToughWriter 5 means that flight crews and even passengers could be able to enjoy the convenience and luxury of wirelessly printing during flight from their personal iOS devices,” said Carll.
