Electronic Flight Folder

Electronic Flight Folder (EFF) provides an electronic Flight-briefng package that replaces day-of-flight paper documentation. 

EFF imports flight-briefing package data from ground systems to the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) so that pilots have real-time access to all information related to the flight plan. Pilots can enter data in specific areas of the flight plan and acquire last-minute updates and revisions.

The EFF briefing package contains all flight-related documents and data such as the operational flight plan (OFP), weather, weather charts, and NOTAM' s in a standardized data structure, always related to specific flights and dedicated to the crew.

If the EFB is connected to an avionics bus for EFB CLASS 2 and CLASS 3 operation, the EFF application imports some types of aircraft data to record flight progress. This aircraft data can include OFF BLOCK, TAKEOFF, LANDING and ON BLOCK times collected from Ground Speed, Captain UTC, weight-on-wheels (WOW) and time and fuel information gathered from specified waypoints along the route. When appropriate, pilots can modify specific types of flight-progress data directly on the EFB.

EFF assists flight crews from briefing through post-flight operations. The EFF data structure is standardized based on ARINC 633-1 parameters.

EFF Flight Plan

Specifications

  • Real-time flight briefing data,
  • Improved dispatch reliability,
  • Elimination of paper printing, paper handling and paper storage costs,
  • Reduced planning and aircraft briefing time,
  • Reduction of pilot workload due to automatic calculation of simple manual tasks (like adding elapsed times, take off times and fuel check), (Arinc 429 connection required)
  • Potential safety increase due to the possibility to implement automatic cross checks of important flight data (such as actual fuel on board being larger than minimum fuel),
  • Cost reduction due to a higher automation in post-flight check in go fen-route ATC charges,
  • Improvements in flight planning due to a feedback of actual flown routes into flight planning systems,
  • Improvements in in-flight optimization due to a more current briefing package,
  • Cost reduction due to a stabilization and simplification of the operation, e.g. less airline ramp or airport handling agent tasks, fewer delays due to missing briefing papers,
  • Fewer training costs.No more training of ramp agents in flight briefing matters,
