Avion Express chooses Fokker Services to install Apple iPad-based EFBs on fleet of Airbus A320 passenger jets

HOOFDDORP, The Netherlands, 28 April 2013. Flight deck avionics experts at Fokker Services in Hoofddorp, The Netherlands, will install electronic flight bag (EFB) capability on the Airbus A320 fleet of charter, aircraft lease operator Avion Express in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Fokker and Avion Express officials have concluded an agreement covering the introduction of the Fokker Services EFB solution for the Apple iPad tablet computer on Avion Express A320 narrowbody passenger jetliners.

The Fokker Services iPad EFB is a Class 2B, EASA-certified installation including mounting and power supply. Avion Express will use the iPad EFB on the company's A320 fleet to save weight and enhance enhanced accessibility of information and performance data, officials say.
