In its simplest form, an EFB can perform basic flight planning calculations and display a variety of digital documents, including navigation charts, operations manuals, and aircraft checklists. The most advanced EFBs are certified as part of the aircraft avionics system and are integrated with aviation systems such as FMS. These advanced systems can also show aircraft position in real-time navigation and weather charts and perform many complex flight planning tasks.


Electronic Flight Bag

An electronic flight bag (EFB) is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently with less paper providing the reference material often found in the pilot’s carry-on flight bag, including the flight-crew operating manual, navigational charts, etc.
