Ã¢â‚¬Å“We believe that Electronic Flight Bag and Airplane Health Management will bring increased efficiency and a greater awareness of each airplaneÃ¢â‚¬™s situation and condition to both flight deck and ground-based personnel,Ã¢â‚¬Â said China Cargo president Zhu Yimin. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This will benefit our customers by improving on-time service while reducing costly delays.Ã¢â‚¬Â
China Cargo is the first airline in China to operate the Boeing EFB and AHM combination.
The electronic flight bag provides information from airplane systems, flight crews, and cabin crews to the airlineÃ¢â‚¬™s base operation. The OPT gives pilots the ideal speeds and engine settings for an aircraft, in any weather, on any runway, with any payload, improving efficiency, range and payload. The EDB module allows instant access to the latest information, replacing multiple bulky paper documents and minimising the need for manual updating and revision.
