Esterline CMC Electronics' new 10.4 inch Class 2 Electronic Flight Bag to be installed by Boeing on Next-Generation production 737s

Esterline CMC Electronics' new 10.4 inch Class 2 PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), launched at NBAA 2008 and selected by Boeing for its Next-Generation 737s and BBJs, will be installed on N-G 737s starting in the third quarter of 2010. The Class 2 EFB system will be available on production airplanes and for retrofit.

Boeing is developing a common application suite and ground infrastructure for use across Class 1, 2 and 3 EFBs which is designed to maximize the value of the EFB infrastructure by including Boeing and Jeppesen applications and data.

The EFB contains all documentation and forms that pilots carry, from aeronautical maps and charts, manuals, fault reporting and operations to minimum equipment lists and logbooks, in digital format, and puts them at the crew's fingertips. The Boeing system provides an integrated solution from the aircraft to the airline's back-office and offers value through improved operational efficiencies."

Greg Yeldon, Esterline CMC Electronics president, said: "The news that Boeing will start to install the latest addition to our EFB product portfolio on Next-Generation 737s and BBJs in production next year is very exciting and strengthens our growing OEM supplier position." 

CMC's PilotView® EFB stays powered during all flight phases, thereby improving productivity and reducing workload. It features an LED-backlit display delivering enhanced readability in all ambient lighting conditions. The compact and self contained display-processor offers all of the latest capabilities available within the PilotView® product line

Over 23 STCs are available for the PilotView 8.4 inch EFB on aircraft ranging from the Gulfstream GV and GIV and Bombardier Global Express/XRS to the Boeing 737. PilotView is the sole OEM Class 2 EFB option at Dassault, Pilatus and Emivest/ Swearingen.  PilotView has been selected by Rockwell Collins for the Bombardier Global platform, by Embraer for the E-170/190 program, and by ATR for the ATR-42 and ATR-72 aircraft.
