The PMA was issued as a result of the Supplemental Type Certificate obtained earlier in the year for DAC’s Gen-X EFB e-Enabling program that is installed in the cockpit and cabin to support a wide range of applications including system interfaces to the aircraft navigation systems, EFB functionality for charts and aircraft documentation, communication system interfaces for text messaging, maintenance support, e-Commerce applications as well as cabin applications for customer support.
 
The PMA approval was accomplished by DAC International’s Engineering and Certification Division (ECD) and supports the Boeing 777-200/300/300ER series aircraft.
