Hey:

Just saw this pic of the VX A320 with LCD screens with the airport map on it like the 777 and A380 (digital screens). I was wondering, is this standard now? Is this an A320E?!? Or is it a mere option?

Doesn't look like the standard install. This is some add-on tablet PCs attached to the side. EFB for A320s is still in prototype mode AFAIK.

I will not bother looking into the VIM's IPC because I am pretty sure this has been done through STC and is therefore not Airbus certified.

Anybody else can confirm?



No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

Hey, those are add-ons from Navaero that can be used in all critical flight phases. There're some decent writeups at

I got those from Googling "Virgin America EFB" and there seemed to be a few more good links, definitely check them out if you're interested! It amazes me how much more I can do on a Cessna with a G1000 than most commercial jets - avionics wise. Of course the safety implications, etc are much more with a 121 jet. The one thing that really got me on the PDF link was that at the top, it says "Installed on the A320, the world's most popular aircraft." I love the tad bit of extra width in those things but since when were they the most popular??

It's number juggling, but when considering the 737NG and 737 classics as different aircraft, the A320 family is the best-selling narrowbody jet aircraft. The 737 classic & NG together have outsold the A320 of course, though.
