‘In this age of advancements through technology, a lot of the so called “smart” gadgets come in handy in making our daily lives that little bit easier. Aviation industry has long been in the front lines of the technological progress. We believe that utilizing the digital age technologies will not only make training more efficient and effective but also it will minimize additional costs and ease the process of learning material updates,‘ commented Dainius Meilunas, Deputy Head of Training.
iPads are replacing the standard flight cases carried by pilots. These contained a large number of paper-based aircraft manuals and operational documents and could weigh up to 50 pounds each when fully loaded. The introduction of the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) instead of a standard one lifted the weight not only from the shoulders of pilots, but also from the cabins of airplanes which, based on rough estimates, can save an airline up to $1.2 million on fuel annually.
