Real-time Information at Pilots’ Fingertips
The paperless flight deck represents the next generation of flying. The introduction of tablet devices ensures pilots have essential and real-time information at their fingertips at all times of the flight. Operating manuals, safety checklists and logbooks can now all be easily and quickly called up from your device.
With Gazoo Mobile’s Electronic Flight Manual, pilots can rapidly jump to whatever section of the manual they so desire, without ever having to flip through pages again – thanks to proprietary hyperlink functionality – built into the EFM. Pilots will also find the electronic flight manual (EFM) an extremely engaging and friendly tool to work with – thanks to the introduction of color graphics, videos and download capabilities.
Seamless Flight Manual Updates
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages with using the EFM is, the ability to keep the manuals up-to-date, this can be done automatically now, as opposed to the old laborious task of swapping old pages for new ones. When you add up the saving in paper, distribution and time, you end up with a very compelling solution.
As a case in point, United Airlines, one of the world’s largest airlines carriers, announced recently an expected savings of 16 million sheets of paper and 326,000 gallons of fuel by moving to electronic flight manual utilizing the iPad.
