IPad Receives FAA Certification As An EFB

Mon Feb 14, 2011 6:30 am

So something that has been talked about here has really happened now

http://www.tuaw.com/2011/02/13/ipad-...ation-as-an-electronic-flight-bag/

Quote:
this authorization allows Executive Jet Management to use the app and iPad as the sole reference for electronic charts at all times during a flight.

Quite an interesting development, I wonder how this is going to change the way we fly if at all it spreads in usage beyond Exec Jet Management Charters.

So we can make it an approved electronic device during takeoff and landing for passengers also.... You know.... As a backup....

It is all ready spreading beyond Exec Jet Charters.
Shortly Amapola will have it on their F50 freighter(the system was EASA certified already).

No, the other way around:

Ipad: Maybe Not A Good Idea On Cockpits Afterall — Tech Ops Forum | Airliners.net

The "trick" here is apparently that the iPad being regular consumer hardware requires the availability of "alternate procedures" as backup for the iPad being used primarily:

Quoting Klaus (Reply 63):
According to JAA Administrative & Guidance Material Section Four: Operations, Part Three: Temporary Guidance Leaflet (JAR-OPS):

Quote:
(1) Class 1, 2 & 3 EFB: May be inoperative provided alternate procedures are established and used where operating procedures are dependant upon the use of the affected EFB.
