is the most comprehensive and intuitive pilot interface for electronic flight bags, allowing access to all applications, documents and data while minimizing pilot administrative activities and training time.

A core feature is the ability to securely sync documents, data and installable applications so that they are ready-to-use in the pilot's electronic flight bag with a single button via the internet and/or USB solid-state devices using advanced, patented delta-change technology.

Virgin Blue Mitigates Risks with OBDS ECL Update Service

Virgin Blue recently standardized their Honeywell Primus EPIC ECL's for Embraer E-170 and E-190 aircraft with On-Board Data Systems' help.

Their exemplary decision to adopt fleet-wide ECL use is excellent testimony to the airlines commitment to aviation safety, but the reasoning of why they use ECL's goes beyond safety and touches on the economics of managing their fleet.
