What is eEnablement?

• It connects airplanes 24/7 to the rest of the organization and


the world to provide the ability to seamlessly move
information.
• It is a set of end to end applications that :
• Are under full control of the fleet manager
• Are connected and distributed in the air and on the ground
• And as such, provides means to lift the capabilities of pilot
device, aircraft or airline’s operations
• Using a communications based infrastructure scheme
(airborne and ground distributed information system
capable of hosting the set of applications)

=> Control of Information flows deliver significant operations


efficiency improvement opportunities

On board today: EFB Market status and trends*

• As of 2012, 83% of airlines had some sort of EFB program. The


main driver of that program is highest price/value combination,
with 76% reporting satisfaction with their EFB program

• Over 90% of EFB programs are driven by Flight Ops

• Tablets are used by 46% of airlines

• Airlines are standardizing EFB connectivity; 50% can access Wi-Fi

• One-fifth of EFB replacements will occur within three years

=> Case won but Airlines are still missing the last link:
Connect EFBs with Operations 24/7
