Months of effort pay off as Oryx Jet eliminates paper from Hawker cockpit
Oryx Jet, the Biggin Hill-based aircraft management and charter company, has recently joined an elite group of UK AOC holders after gaining electronic flight bag approval from the CAA for use on its Hawker 900XP aircraft.

Oryx Jet, the Biggin Hill-based aircraft management and charter company, has recently joined an elite group of UK AOC holders after gaining electronic flight bag approval from the CAA for use on its Hawker 900XP aircraft.

Based on the iPad, the EFB leads to a reduction in weight as paper charts are no longer required to be carried on the aircraft; a cost saving to the company as the paper charts subscription is no longer necessary; and a reduction in man hours.

Its approval follows 18 months of work by the operations team and chief pilot Rod Boath.

Says Boath: "Our EFB approval demonstrates Oryx Jet's commitment to innovation and maintaining a competitive edge in the executive jet business. We are committed to providing a cutting edge service to our customers, whether they be on our own fleet of aircraft or those that we manage.

"Considerable time, effort and dedication have been spent during the past 18 months in providing the necessary documentation as well as research material and ensuring this information met with the requirements of our national authority."

Boath adds: "We are delighted with this latest achievement and we now join a unique club of operators in the UK that can fly with a paper-less cockpit."
