Digital Info Device Wins Commercial Jet Application
Edited by Robert H. Williams
Canada’s CMC Electronics’ PilotView flight bag is being acquired by aerospace giant Embraer of Brazil for use on its E-Jets family and Lineage 1000 aircraft.
The compact system increases situational awareness by providing instant access to aircraft documentation and flight planning information, including en-route and approach charts, moving map display and real-time graphical weather information.
The display comes with a keyboard and touch sensitive screen. Additionally, a flight crew member can view data on another screen by touching a single key. The one key feature also permits toggling among other video images and surveillance systems.
