 - October 21, 2019, 11:01 AM

Collins Aerospace (Booth C10808) is displaying the business aviation industry’s first digital oceanic plotting chart, available on the company’s ArincDirect iPad app, this week at NBAA-BACE 2019. The digital chart is available to all ArincDirect subscribers at no additional cost. 

The chart includes live equal time points (ETPs), which update bearing, distance, and arrival time constantly throughout the flight. Live ETPs are computed and updated for any scenario, including engine failure, depressurization, and medical emergency, thereby eliminating the need for manual computations. 

“This new capability brings our industry one step closer to all-digital operations. In a world where apps are a part of daily life, it only makes sense to make this happen for flight operations,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, v-p and general manager for information management services at Collins Aerospace.
