The eFlyBook portable document viewer, developed specifically for general aviation pilots, is a small and lightweight electronic paper-based tablet that lets users read flight documents without unfolding large, cumbersome paper charts. The eFlyBook’s Electronic Paper Display (EPD) technology lets pilots read digital charts just like normal paper—regardless of the light conditions.
Pilots can use an electronic stylus to write on the screen when making notations, copying weather information, or marking waypoints on charts. The result is just like writing on paper with a real pen or pencil. The stylus is also used on a pop-up keyboard so users can enter data to search for specific aeronautical documents.
The small, yet powerful eFlyBook also includes a robust Windows-based desktop software application that replicates the functions on one’s personal computer (PC). It creates the look and feel of eFlyBook on the PC screen, including a drag-and-drop content manager.
Pilots can use the eFlyBook to connect to the Internet via Ethernet or through a Wi-Fi network to download aeronautical content and other individual documents.
Updates to FAA charts and other flight documents are stored on CDs and mailed to eFlyBook subscribers to expedite the update process. After loading the CDs onto their PCs, subscribers then transfer the documents over a USB cable to eFlyBook for later viewing.
