Esterline CMC Electronics’ PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag Granted STC Approval for B737-700 BBJ

(National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) – October 2011) Esterline CMC Electronics’ (CMC) 10.4 inch Class 2 PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) installation on the B737-700 BBJ aircraft has received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval by the Federal Aviation Administration. The STC was earned by ABC Completions of Montreal.

The certification covers a dual PilotView EFB installation enabling paperless cockpit operations, including aircraft data, procedures manuals and interactive electronic charts. As part of the installation, ABC Completions has provided a custom made articulating mount, which places the EFB in the optimum position for comfortable viewing and usage, while maintaining safe operations of all cockpit controls.

“The Esterline CMC Electronics PilotView EFB is really at the head of its class because it provides the quality and many capabilities of a class 3 system, with the flexibility of a class 2 system,” explained Gary Nash, president, ABC Completions.

CMC’s PilotView® EFB stays powered during all flight phases and is integrated with a number of aircraft systems, thereby improving application value for pilots, productivity and reducing workload. It features an LED-backlit display delivering enhanced readability in all ambient lighting conditions. The compact, self contained display-processor offers all of the latest processing capabilities available in the PilotView® product line.

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 25 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. PilotView is offered as a standard option by Dassault and ATR, by Embraer for the Legacy 600/650 and E-170/190 programs, by Bombardier for the CRJ700/900/1000, and by Boeing for the Next-Generation B-737s and BBJs.
