September 24, 2013 (TORONTO) - Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, is pleased to congratulate customer, euroAtlantic Airways, for their extended Class 2 Type B EFB approval from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).  This is one of the first EASA certifications for an airline operating an all Boeing aircraft fleet and utilizing Apple iPad hardware. The non-scheduled international airline, operating in diverse routes in the US, Canada, Caribbean, Central and South Americas, Africa, Middle East and beyond, will operate Navtech iCharts via iPads across their entire fleet. euroAtlantic Airways is also a subscriber to Navtech's Navigation Data for the GE US and Honeywell FMS.

"We are always pleased to be a part of innovative technology solutions that give our customers cost savings, enhanced safety and overall increased operational efficiency," said Mr. Heath Bowden, Product Director - Charts & EFB at Navtech. "euroAtlantic has had great success in removing paper from their cockpits."

euroAtlantic Airways was a new customer to Navtech in 2012, signing two agreements for services within six months and becoming an ally for Navtech.  "We have a very good, professional relationship with Navtech and we are happy to help bring them more attention through our story," said euroAtlantic Airways Chief Pilot, Mario Alvim.  "We are very pleased with our Navtech solution."

Navtech iCharts is an application that brings Navtech electronic charts to your iPad.  This allows the iPad to be used as a Class 1 EFB, or with regulatory and operational approval, as a Class 2 Type B device.  Navtech has worked with customers, like euroAtlantic Airways, to achieve operational approval of the iPad as a Class 2 device.  Navtech's family of state-of-the-art aeronautical charts products have been developed using research from Human Factor Specialists and by gathering data from, and working closely with pilots who have years of experience using aeronautical charts.  Each chart includes enhanced symbology and communication features.  Navtech's electronic chart viewing application, Navtech eCharts, has been used by Navtech's customers for over ten years. Continued product enhancements will form the infrastructure for Navtech to easily support all Classes of EFB and all devices from tablets to installed avionics.
