Boeing to install Electronic Flight Bag on TAAG Angola Airlines aircraft.
Boeing (NYSE: BA) will install the industry-standard Boeing Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on two 777-200ER (Extended Range) and four 737-700 aircraft to be delivered to TAAG Angola Airlines.
The airline will reportedly take delivery of the aircraft starting from the third quarter of 2006. Boeing said that with this installation TAAG will become the first carrier in Africa to fly the Class 3 EFB in commercial service, the first commercial operator to use the Class 3 EFB on a Next-Generation 737 and the first carrier to use the Class 3 on multiple fleet types.
Using software developed by Boeing and its subsidiary Jeppesen as well as hardware from Astronautics Corp of America (ACA), the Boeing EFB digitises charts and manuals that pilots need to fly an aircraft, giving them the information they need instantly.
