Electronic Flight Bags Launched on All Flights

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

electronic-flight-bagsRyanair launched Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) for all pilots, across its entire fleet of 300 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which will see Ryanair pilots using iPads in place of traditional flight manuals.

As part of its “Always Getting Better” programme, Ryanair pilots now have full electronic use of Boeing’s Onboard Performance Tool (OPT), which includes take-off performance calculations, as well as instant access to the most up to date electronic flight manuals, which will further improve time management and productivity, reducing dependency on paper products.

These two applications are the first in a suite of products that Ryanair is preparing to roll out over the coming months, including electronic charts and load sheets, subject to testing and approval from the Irish Aviation Authority.

Over the coming months, Ryanair plans to remove paper from the flight deck, eliminating 15kgs of manuals from each cockpit, and with Ryanair operating over 550,000 flights annually, creating fuel savings, while also eliminating more than 10 million pages of paper documentation, reaffirming Ryanair’s position as Europe’s greenest and cleanest airline.
