Singapore Airlines (SIA) will add Boeing’s Class 3electronic flight bag (EFB) installation kits on its entire fleet of new and existing 777s. SIA now flies a fleet of 58 Boeing 777s, the largest of any airline, and holds orders for another 19. Boeing expects to begin fitting the EFB installation kits on the 19 new 777-300ERs starting in November.

Each kit includes two pilot displays in the cockpit from Astronautics Corp. of America and two electronic processors. The kit also includes engineering for the installation of hardware, video surveillance equipment to monitor the cabin entry to the flight deck, a network file server to be located in the cabin and a terminal wireless LAN unit. Boeing software will include the first delivery of the Boeing electronic logbook and the taxi positional-awareness moving map from Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen.
