Global Electronic Flight Bag Market Information Report by Type (Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3), Application (Commercial, Military, Personal, and Air Transport) and Region - Forecast to 2022
An electronic flight bag (EFB) is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently. An EFB electronically stores and retrieves documents required for flight operations such as operating manuals, aeronautical charts, airport information, route information and weather.
One of the factor which drives the growth of the electronic flight bag market is safety because it helps the pilots up-to-date on live weather and assist in route management to avoid discretionary fuel burn. Real-time EFB updates by means of satellite communications to the flight deck make pilots aware of bad weather or turbulence. The other factor that is responsible for the growth of this market is replacement of all paper-based manual. Eliminating paper from the flight deck saves weight and makes it more convenient
