Making the Business Case for EFBs
A Challenging ROI
Simply replacing traditional paper charts, forms and fragmented technology (voice, text, etc) with an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)
is not a sufficient evolution to create a compelling ROI for most airlines. In short, replacing paper for another electronic gadget is only an incremental step forward. A step that does not enable the airline or its personnel to reduce workload or make better decisions.
It is not until the EFB is connected, live to onboard systems, ground systems and operators that real-time connectivity, information exchange and decision making is enabled. When this occurs the value of the EFB ROI can be realized. View our EFB Brochure.
Real-time ROI-ACMI Operator
An international ACMI operator engaged FLYHT to connect its aircraft and ensure that information was available to its flight crew regardless of their location. Through a Class II EFB, the customer transmits flight releases, performance calculations, weight & balance and text messages to its crew. Hard savings have been achieved through reduced data transmission costs and faster turnarounds.
Gone are the days of waiting for information or performing timely manual calculations – information is readily available whether the aircraft is on the ground or in the air.
