Cockpit iPad for Lufthansa Cargo

Lufthansa Cargo is introducing an iPad-based Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) packed with navigation maps and operating manuals for cockpit use by pilots.
“Important documents will be just a finger-swipe away,” said the German all-cargo carrier.
“The iPad is the ideal basis for modern communication with the pilots and digital processes in the cockpit,” comments Wolfgang Raebiger, director of flight operations at Lufthansa Cargo.
Lufthansa says that the removal of docking stations and thick cabling reduces weight, which means less kerosene used per flight.
Adds Raebiger: “Already today we can guarantee that the iPad will provide the same functionalities as our current generation of Laptop EFBs. By that we lay the foundation for the integration of future technologies.”
The latest iPad generation will be rolled out at the end of 2014 and Lufthansa Cargo’s aircraft will be retrofitted starting from 2015, depending on delivery times and service layovers.
