Boeing (Booth U23) has secured a launch customer for the new version of its electronic logbook (ELB): Singapore Airlines (SIA). Developed with Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Ultramain Systems, the ELB is designed to improve communications between pilots, ground crews, maintenance technicians and engineering personnel. SIA will install the ELB on its Boeing 777s.

The ELB software runs on the electronic flight bag to connect flight data into a central repository where it is combined with maintenance and engineering information. This enables airlines to “better understand and diagnose issues,” Boeing explained. Airplane information is thus “efficiently and quickly shared with the people who need it,” said Per Noren, vice president of Boeing’s commercial aviation information services.
