January 11, 2019
Scandinavian Avionics has designed, EASA certified and delivered a complete iPad based Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution to Volotea, to deploy into their fleet of A319s.
The SA Group is proud to announce that Volotea selected the future proof SA EFB solution with iPad and Power supply option, and with future possibility to extend with Cockpit Wireless Access Point (WAP) and aircraft connectivity, Cockpit Door Surveillance System (CDSS) and more.
The selected solution consists of two mounted iPad cradles with QuickLock™ and the SA Control Panel for iPad and Personal Electronic Device (PED) power. Certification and FAA validation activities are completed. Installation phase is initiated and is scheduled to be completed early spring 2019. Based on our EASA Part 21J Design Organization Approval and EASA Part 21G Production Organization Approval, Scandinavian Avionics can, as one out of a few suppliers, design, manufacture and certify tailored EFB products in house. These values added, limit risk exposure and in-creases predictability for customer projects. This is in line with the SA Group philosophy to provide Turn-Key projects to its valued customers.
Christian Eriksson, Sales Manager at Scandinavian Avionics explains: “The modular EFB solution we have developed, is a well proven concept appreciated by a range of operators. The flexibility in the SA EFB offering has a positive financial effect on initial investment and future upgrades enabling cost effective EFB projects. With the Part 21.J. and 21.G. in house we control and guarantee a seamless delivery of products and services now and over time. Juha Kulmala, Captain, Head of Standards & Procedures comments: “Volotea selected Scandinavian Avionics as EFB supplier because it is a robust solution whose installation has minimum effect to the aircraft structures. In addition; the solution by Scandinavian Avionics is future proof thanks to its upgrade possibilities and cost efficient component changes in case of switching to another tablet type than the current iPads. Also the component delivery times have been short.
