How it works

Integrated electronic flight bag infographic

The Integrated Electronic Flight Bag (IEFB) solution enables flight crews to stay in touch, read flight maps, and get real-time weather information through data, systems, and content integration.

The IEFB solution synchronizes the crew member’s on-premises identity and password to create a single user identity across cloud and on-premises systems. It secures devices, apps, users, and data through capabilities such as conditional access, user behavior analysis, and encryption. Plus, the flexibility of in-cockpit mounts facilitates device choice to ensure that the chosen IEFB can be universal for the crew’s needs.
