AirGator, Inc. of Mount Kisco, N.Y., is introducing its new line of NAVAir electronic flight bag (EFB) portable computers here this week. NAVAir products are aimed at airline, corporate and other professional pilots, allowing flight planning, route calculations and destination operations to be done with one device. The EFBs are being showcased at AirGator’s NBAA display (Booth No. 2006).
Among the available options is the NAVPad Bundle, featuring a wireless tablet PC with sunlight-readable touchscreen display, Bluetooth-enabled WAAS GPS and XM WX or WSI/Sirius weather receiver with antenna, NAVAirEFB moving-map software with integrated real-time weather, an integrated single-wire 12/28-VDC power harness and optional mounting and power backup. NAVPad bundles are available in either hard drive or 8/16 GB high-capacity solid-state configurations. Secondary or multiple display units may be added for more flexibility, giving all flight deck members and the passenger access to current flight information.
NAVAir products qualify as Class 1 and Class 2 EFBs, according to FAA Circular 120-76A, and are available in a wide range of configurations. The solid-state devices will operate at unpressurized altitudes greater than 10,000 feet, and can be integrated into existing systems.
