KLM to install Boeing's Electronic Flight Bag.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will install Boeing's Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on its new fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft.
The EFB can contain all documentation and forms carried by pilots - such as aeronautical charts, manuals for fault reporting and operations, minimum equipment lists and logbooks - in digital format. It also includes a weight-and-balance calculator, allowing pilots to instantly calculate the ideal speeds and engine setting for an aircraft in any weather, on any runway, with any payload.
KLM will reportedly be the first airline to install the new technology from Boeing's Crew Information Services (CIS) group.
