Monarch Airlines Electronic Flight Bag implementation
Luton, U.K, July 2011

Monarch Airlines has launched a Class 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) demonstration trial. The demonstration consists of the Goodrich Class 2 Smart Display and a suite of applications including Evoke System’s EFOS Class 2 Reporting Module. If the trial is successful, the system will be deployed across the Airline’s entire Airbus fleet early next year, with Monarch becoming the first UK mainstream airline with a Class 2 EFB.

The project is developing the traditional Class 2 EFB concept of pilot-related software applications into a complete Cockpit Data Management Solution, whereby the aircraft becomes a node on Monarch’s IT network while on the ground. The EFB has an intimate interface with the aircraft avionics and uses a variety of technologies to exchange information with the Company network anywhere in the world.

The close partnership between the main stakeholders has allowed development to progress rapidly. Monarch’s EFB project was initiated in March 2010; main signatures were signed in June 2011; and the EFB hardware was installed on the first aircraft two weeks later. The EFB architecture is ‘future proofed’ ready for the installation of future navigation requirements such as ADS-B and CPDLC.

Commenting on the selection of Flightman, Captain Nils Christy, Operations Director at Monarch Airlines, said “the EFB system will enable Monarch Airlines to achieve a paperless cockpit and streamline our operational processes. This will allow our aircraft to operate to maximum efficiency and achieve significant cost savings. Building a successful partnership has been pivotal to the project”.
