Goodrich recently announced that its EFB system has received Supplemental Type Certification from Transport Canada for the Bombardier Global Express family of aircraft. This includes the Global Express, the Global XRS and the Global 5000. The certification process was conducted by Business Jet Aircraft Completions (BJAC), based in Dorval, Quebec, Canada. Goodrich selected BJAC as a world-wide authorised sales and service center of Goodrich EFB systems for business jet aircraft last year.
The Goodrich EFB system is comprised of true avionics-grade equipment specifically designed for the aircraft environment. The company offers 8.4 and 10.4in. optically enhanced, high-resolution, passively cooled displays which provide easy viewing in day or night conditions. The computer includes fully integrated video surveillance system capability and optional wireless connectivity. The system is fully qualified to DO-160. The BJAC “One-Touch” menu page integrates EFB software to allow seamless transitions between software hosted on the Goodrich EFB. The BJAC software also manages EFB software updates.
