About This Project:
Since Regan Designs first introduced the integrated EFB in 1998 the market realized that the cockpit environment presented unique challenges. In in the existing fleet, panel space, or any space within the pilot’s view, is at a premium. The only “real estate” that is universally available is the area allocated for the display of an approach plate. An approach plate is roughly the size of a standard sheet of paper folded in half (5.5” x 8.5”). Frequently the approach plates are placed on a small clipboard that is mounted to the aircraft’s control yoke. This limits the maximum weight. Jeppesen, the worlds largest publisher of aviation navigation information, developed electronic versions of their approach plates that have a minimum display resolution requirement (for a full page) of 1024 x 768 (XGA).
These requirements, small size, light weight, high resolution display, full user interface and DO160D certification combine to make a very challenging set of requirements. The enabling technology came with the introduction of an 8.4” 1024 x 768 AMLCD display (late 2003). Regan Designs acquired one of the first prototypes of this display and integrated it into a prototype EFB, project name: CTX, which was to become the CMA-1100 – PilotView. The innovative and unique sliding keyboard allows full alphanumeric data entry capability without sacrificing any space.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery.
