About Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Training

In an increasingly electronic age, new ways of safely digitizing aviation are being implemented. One such system is the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) aiming to replace document-filled bags. Scandlearn has created animated training giving flight crew a true visual account of how an EFB works and what it can include.

EFBs prove to be efficient and a money saver, but going from paper to paperless is a big leap, so practice is required. Our visual course includes a thorough analysis of EFBs, including in-flight failures of such devices with steps to take should the batteries create a fire hazard.

Topics Included
  • EFB v paper documentation
  • Company manuals on EFBs
  • EFBs secured for flight
  • EFB back-up plans
  • Regulatory authorities
  • Risks, including thermal runaway and battery safety
  • Contingency plans
  • Basic v advanced EFBs
  • Operating EFBs and updating functions
  • Tablets and internet connections
  • Certification process
  • EFB communication problems
  • Crucial steps to take in a fire situation
