An Electronic Flight Bag replaces paper-based documents, but It’s just more than document dematerialization; it’s a matter of cutting away layers, doing better and faster, reducing overall costs.
Lean processes provide single actions to keep users up to date with all assigned content like Weather charts, forms or manuals in in their latest version.
Roles help to ensure the provision of all relevant data to different user groups or departments e.g. flight operation, maintenance, cabin crew. The backend system ensures that users only receive relevant content.
eBriefing with flight plan & NOTAMS, document reader for different document types, eForms for the rapid collection of information, full text search and compliance reports.
Logipad enables small, medium-sized and even large airlines a safe and secure EFB solution. We advise you which model best fits your existing infrastructure.
Our data processes are standardized and meets the requirements set out by the FAA and the EASA in the AC120-76B and NPA 2012-02 (former TGL-36) documentation.
All Logipad information approved via ground infrastructure is consolidated into one dedicated Logipad Electronic Flight Bag app on the Apple iPad. As developers we test the Logipad App with the beta versions of iOS. Our software always supports the latest version of iOS as of release day.
The Logipad platform supports most Windows‐based devices and applications on Windows 7 as well as Windows 8 and 10. Of course, the app is optimized for tablet computer and laptop use. The hardware platform needs to be Intel-based; Logipad will therefore not run on devices based on Windows ARM. To increase the reliability of Class 1 devices, the environment is optimized and secured for EFB operations.
As Class 2 EFB devices are dedicated to cockpits, only aircraft-related content is allowed by regulation. On the other hand, these devices are capable of supporting in‐flight operations as a paperless solution. The Logipad synchronization process allows the integration of Class 2 EFB devices, even if Class 1 EFB devices are in use. Supported connections are 3G, LTE/4G, WiFi/LAN and USB. The Logipad Class 2 environment is optimized for cockpit use. Due to the role‐based system, it can even support large, mixed fleets. Compliance reports documenting all aircrafts data revisions can be generated no matter which update channel is used.
The briefing package displays for e.g. flight plans, NOTAMS, weather charts and additional flight information. All information is provided by a flight planning system as a briefing package, and is accessed via synchronization in the Logipad App. Logipad uses the ARINC 633-2 EFF standard and thus requires the use of a flight planning system supporting this or an equivalent format. Additionally, flight-specific data can be logged and transferred back to the flight planning system.
Do you want to collect data systematically? Create your own electronic forms or use existing templates. Due to the fact that standards are used, eForms can easily be adjusted or developed by airlines. All entered data can be created and stored on the device for offline use. In addition completed eForms are sent to the backend system. The Information entered by users is processed by the server and can be shared between existing systems. Even workflows and notifications can be triggered to inform relevant users/roles, when eForms have been stored or have arrived on the server.
Our document-reader supports various document types like: PDF, HTML, XML, HTML-ZIP, BOEING EDB, EXCEL, WORD, POWERPOINT. Administrators can also restrict the actions of documents. Deactivating the export flag prohibits document actions such as printing, releasing, copying and sending. In addition, comments, bookmarks and favorites can be customized for each document. A history of recent activities is also available.
The home screen of the app contains a corporate news ticker to display recent information to the pilot. By pushing the synchronization button, the content of all activated modules is downloaded or synchronized based on the device registration and role‐based configuration. The app design can be adapted to meet the customer’s corporate design guidelines. It supports switching between colour themes and allows day and night mode usage by default control.
Don’t waste time finding information! Search the entire library using Logipad’s powerful search engine. In order to increase the fast searchability of documents, we have built in a mechanism that prepares any documents even before the search. Search functionality works with the following file formats: PDF, HTML-ZIP, BOEING EDB.
Well thought-out processes and a user-friendly design enable a fast handling of the app. The interface is based on feedback from pilots who have been using Logipad in their daily work for several years. All areas within the application feature a day and night mode, which makes it easier for pilots to concentrate on the essential work processes over longer periods of time.
Our Electronic Flight Bag solution uses a staging model for releasing content. Before releasing content to the productive stage, a testing stage ensures the correctness of provided content. Regarding users and files ensures that specific users get relevant content only.
Operational authorities are able to mark documents as „to be confirmed“. These documents are grouped and displayed in a separate view. This enables quick access to prioritized documents and information. If a user confirms a document, the status is synchronized with the backend system.
Logipad tracks all document synchronization tasks and is informed about the current status. All information is stored in the backend system and is used to create compliance reports. Compliance reports can be adapted to corporate guidelines.
A dedicated test mode for the flight open backend and the devices helps to reduce errors.
A validity or expiration date can be assigned to documents. Depending on the configurable date, documents are visible or hidden to the user.
