RYANAIR has introduced Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) for pilots across its fleet of 300 Boeing 737-800 aircraft. It means pilots using iPads instead of traditional flight manuals.
The airline plans to remove paper from the flight deck, eliminating 33lbs of manuals from each cockpit. With 550,000 flights annually, that will eliminate more than 10 million pages of paper documentation.
Ryanair’s Group Director of Operations, Michael Hickey said: ‘With a rapidly growing operation across 71 European bases, the logistical challenges of delivering information to crew are instantly simplified with the introduction of the iPad as an EFB.’
