Aug. 21, 2012 – Esterline CMC Electronics' (CMC) PilotView® CMA-1410 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) has been selected as standard equipment on the Boeing 777 aircraft as the Maintenance Access Terminal (MAT) replacement. CMC's 10.4 inch device will be used as a display terminal in the 777 flight deck, enabling maintenance personnel and crew to access aircraft systems from one central location and relay data where required.
Greg Yeldon, president of Esterline CMC Electronics, said, "The fact that Boeing will be using our Pilotview CMA-1410 in the 777 as a Maintenance Access Terminal, as opposed to a Class 2 EFB, underscores the flexibility of our design. Given its ability to swiftly communicate with onboard aircraft systems, the CMA-1410 actually has more applications than just serving as an EFB."
The CMC PilotView EFB system offers a wide range of features and field proven applications that include charting, electronic documentation, en route real-time weather moving maps, camera surveillance, aircraft data monitoring and reporting as well as real-time ACARS messaging over VHF or satellite services. In addition, CMC offers an advanced terrain-awareness application.
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. PilotView is offered as a standard option by ATR, by Dassault on the Falcon 900, 2000 and 7X, 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.
