July 23, 2006 The general aviation marketplace is to get its own version of iRex Technologies first generation electronic reader, the iLiad. In an innovative three-way partnership, ARINC has teamed with MyAirplane.com and Netherlands based iRex Technologies (a spin-off of Royal Phillips Electronics) to bring the eFlyBook aviation solution to market.
ARINC and MyAirplane.com executives will announce the eFlyBook at a press conference at the upcoming EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2006 on July 27. The ARINC eFlyBook electronic document (eDoc) viewer is a major breakthrough in display and document viewing technology. The eFlyBook is a portable electronic device that contains all of the U.S. digitized terminal procedures, IFR high and low altitude enroute charts, U.S. airport facility directory, the FAR/AIM, and can accommodate other user installed eDocs such as books, newspapers, magazines, pictures, and many others.
The eFlyBook has an 8.1 inch display in a 1/2 inch thick, 13.7 oz device, with very low power consumption providing days of document viewing capability.
