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.
