ABC earns STC for Global EFB
ABC Completions has obtained EASA STC approval for its iPad as a Class II electronic flight bag for Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft.

Montreal-based ABC Completions has obtained FAA and EASA STC certification for its EFB aboard the Global 6000 aircraft. The system is certified for taxi, take off and landing as a Class II electronic flight bag, complete with electrical connection to aircraft systems.

The iPad tablet is secured within a custom-designed aluminium housing enabling access to all the controls. All models of iPads are supported and future tablet updates are enabled, and the black powder-coated housing matches and protects the iPad tablet at all times.

The articulating, fully adjustable custom-designed mount allows for a comfortable positioning so that charts can be viewed in both landscape and portrait modes. The mount provides a secure and safe means of attaching the iPad offering protection in all conditions.

Two DAC International GDC64 tablet adapter interface units provide electrical power to the tablets for recharging the battery, an interface to the aircraft’s FMS for display of aircraft position and presentation of graphical weather from an optional XM weather receiver. These two units provide complete dual system redundancy. Video from an optional enhanced vision system or security camera system can be viewed on the iPad.
