Latest Generation PilotView Electronic Flight Bags Offer Advanced Crew Applications and State-of-the-Art Processing Capabilities

National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) – October 30, 2012. Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) is showcasing its latest generation family of PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) products in NBAA Booth # 5031.

CMC’s PilotView® EFB systems continue to evolve, with product configurations ranging from 8.4-inch to 12.1-inch displays. These systems offer a wide range of features and field proven applications that include charting, electronic documentation, en route real-time weather moving maps, terrain awareness, camera surveillance, and aircraft data monitoring and reporting. CMC’s EFB solution integrates with the ACSS Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) sensor technology and SafeRoute® applications to deliver airport moving map with own-ship position for enhanced situational awareness during airport taxiing. The PilotView® EFB is also approved for real-time ACARS messaging over VHF-based and satellite services.

The PilotView® 8.4-inch CMA-1100 Mk 3 and 10.4-inch CMA-1410 Mk 3 EFBs on display feature the company’s latest display enhancements, including dual touch capability and a powerful Intel® Core i7 processor that seamlessly enables a wide range of advanced software applications. The state-of-the-art processor delivers high-end graphics capabilities for all of CMC’s EFB products – both for new products as well as the retrofit of fielded units with full form and fit interchangeability. CMC is also offering LED integrated backlighting improvements for its 8.4-inch PilotView® EFB. These include enhanced sunlight readability, lower power consumption and enhanced battery life.

Jim Palmer, vice-president, aviation products, Esterline CMC Electronics, said: “CMC is a pioneer in the design and manufacture of EFBs and touchscreen displays.  Our PilotView® EFB system is certified for use in all flight phases and is integrated with a number of aircraft systems, generating improved application value for pilots, enhanced productivity and reduced workload.”

The PilotView® EFB system offers one-touch situational awareness and a best in class, film-on-glass touchscreen for superior readability. Certified for Class 2 and Class 3 usage, PilotView® is the electronic flight bag preferred by OEMs. In addition, over 30 STCs are available for the PilotView® EFB on aircraft ranging from the Gulfstream GlV/GV, the Bombardier Challenger and Global Express/XRS, to the Boeing 737.
