Arconics will be in BKK, at stand E8 – let’s meet!

The Airline and Aerospace MRO and Operations IT Conference, in Bangkok on October 26 and 27, 2016, is the world’s only event to address the topical issues relating to the development of IT and its importance in safe and efficient flight operations.

This event provides the ideal opportunity for airlines, aircraft operators and independent MROs to learn, over just two days, more about how new technology can streamline and increase their operating efficiency as well as dramatically reduce costs.

Arconics will be showcasing, and providing live demos of, two of our key software solutions, AeroDocs and AeroEFB. Drop by stand E8 and learn why airlines such as Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways, Aer Lingus and Philippine Airlines are using our software to ensure safety and compliance and maximum operational efficiency.

AeroDocs – our world-leading, aviation grade, airline document distribution, tracking and viewing software

AeroDocs is available in three solutions, each designed to meet different needs. The upgrade path is easy and the software is scalable to any fleet size.

AeroDocs CONTROL – The fast track to the paperless cockpit

Incorporates the document distribution and viewing modules and is designed to appeal to airlines that want to adopt the paperless cockpit and also airlines that are currently using non-aviation-grade solutions, often from more than one supplier. AeroDocs ensures complete control over an airline’s processes and documentation. Boasts the world’s best pilot EFB viewer.

A350_XWB_Cathay_Pacific_TAKE_OFF_c87819faa2.jpgAeroDocs COMPLIANCE – Adds nextgen XML functionality for pilots and compliance

Adds XML editing module to distribution and viewing functionality. Enables easy XML editing of Airbus and Boeing manuals, as well as general ops manuals in one seamless, end-to-end system. Advanced regulation tagging helps ensure regulatory compliance.

AeroDocs ENTERPRISE – Delivers efficiencies from the cockpit to the boardroom

Full product functionality suite, fully customised to handle an airline’s ops and corporate document needs. The ultimate document safety and compliance solution for aviation. Installed on airline’s own servers, enterprise license.

AeroEFB – our modular electronic flight bag solution with best-in-class viewer app

AeroEFB is a Portable, Type A/B software electronic flight bag designed to create Electronic Flight Folders, and also distribute and view Airbus and Boeing XML aircraft manuals, plus internal manuals produced by the airline. This aviation-specific software enables viewing of flight documents and dynamic content on iPad and Windows portable devices, in any operating environment, with advanced day/night mode functionality. Safety and regulatory compliance are made easy with workflows, tracking and content linking. Data security is paramount. Manuals can be updated in PDF or XML format. Our app enables pilots to quickly find the information they require – crucial when quick decisions need to be made on the flight deck. Arconics software is built around the needs of the professional pilot and consists of a suite of tightly-integrated modules: Manuals, Flight Briefing, Forms, Weather, Read+Sign, Viewer and Distributor.

EFB-software-AeroEFB-Arconics

Meet Arconics at EFB Users Forum, Munich, 24-26 May 2016

Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Users Forum and Expo

Hosted by Lufthansa Systems

Hilton Munich Park

Co-Chairman: Captain Philipp Haller, Austrian Airlines; Co-Chairman: Captain Will Ware, Southwest Airlines

Cathay Pacific selected Arconics because they are able to deliver a tailored solution in a timely manner. Arconics was able to work with our enterprise architecture and security teams to create the perfect configuration for our needs. Our initial deployment used BYOD devices across Boeing and Airbus fleets. The pilot feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are now rolling out company-issued devices to crew across the airline and our subsidiaries. We have chosen AeroEFB as part of the solution for our A350 – our first paperless cockpit. Arconics software gives Flight Ops the reporting and compliance management that we need. Arconics were able to enhance the product based on our requirements. We have been delighted with Arconics and the software they have delivered to us.”

- Mark Hoey, General Manager Operations, Cathay Pacific

Discover the power of AeroEFB at EFB Users Forum, Munich, 2016

Goal: The goal is to coordinate development of EFBs among airlines, airframe manufacturers, suppliers, and regulators. The forum will also identify operational and technical trends to find standardised solutions while improving EFB services. In combination with coordinated development, this will help achieve the ultimate goal of a wider range of products, harmonised regulations, expanded capabilities, and lower cost for the benefit of all.

Scope: The EFB Users Forum was chartered by its original APIM 09-009 in October, 2009. This activity provides a unified forum for airlines, system integrators, hardware and software providers, regulators, and other interested parties to present and discuss topics of interest to the EFB user community. This includes but is not limited to EFB subjects such as:

  • Regulatory changes.
  • Communication interfaces (including media, provider, connectivity).
  • Data input devices, terminals, displays, and interactive devices.
  • Hardware and software development.
  • Electrical interfaces and power supply.
  • Operational issues.

EFB-benefits-AeroEFB-Arconics.pngThe EFB Users Forum is not intended to create new standards. However, when such needs are recognised, they are referred to the EFB Subcommittee or ARINC Industry Activities staff for action.

Arconics will exhibit our AeroEFB electronic flight bag software at the EFB Users Forum and Expo, and it would be great to meet up and show you why our EFB viewer is considered best-in-class by airline pilots all over the world. The AeroEFB viewer was the world’s first native EFB viewer for iPad and its design has been led by the pilot user experience. We will be unveiling our native Windows Surface EFB viewer at the forum, so you can be among the very first to experience this exciting innovation.

Among the many benefits of Arconics AeroEFB

AeroEFB is a modular solution, which can integrate easily and efficiently with any other element of your IT structure. Our Electronic Flight Bag takes flexibility to new heights, offering a robust central control and viewing experience, with complete freedom in the choice of modules.

AeroEFB can be integrated with aircraft data systems and ground control using Arinc protocols, enabling dynamic updates and reporting. AeroEFB delivers FCBP (Flight Crew Briefing Packs) to crew devices. The system captures flight-related data from the crew during flight and returns the data to the ground systems in XML format. Our software provides the secure management and controlled distribution of briefing items such as OFPs (Operational Flight Plans), NOTAMs, Weather and Flight Logs.

AeroEFB electronic flight bag software delivers on the promise of digital and the benefits of the paperless cockpit, giving pilots the world’s most effective tools and the best possible flight experience. AeroEFB is the market-leading solution for delivery of FCOMs, ops manuals and documents into the paperless cockpits of nextgen aircraft such as the A350 and the B787.
