AMT chosen by Atlas Air
Atlas Air, Inc. the world’s largest operator of 747 freighter aircraft, selects Aircraft Management Technologies’ Flightman™ for Electronic Flight Bag Software Solution
Award winning EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) software provider, Aircraft Management Technologies (AMT) today announced a contract with Atlas Air Inc., an operating unit of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc., a leading provider of global outsourced aircraft services based in Purchase, New York. This agreement will achieve cost savings and operational improvements through the deployment of AMT’s Flightman suite of EFB applications.
Under the FAA’s Capstone 3 program, Atlas Air’s goal is optimize their crew’s access to real-time knowledge, maximize on ground safety, and move towards a paperless cockpit environment across their fleet of B747-400 aircraft. AMT will provide an EFB solution that brings together the full functionality of the Flightman software platform, incorporating eJourney Log, Large Content Manager and eForms applications. It will be fully integrated with the Jeppesen Airport Moving Map application and will provide Atlas Air with a common user experience across all EFB applications. The Flightman solution will enable the management and control of content distribution to the EFBs in a cost effective, efficient and compliant manner. Furthermore the solution will allow pilots to record data on the EFBs and position them to exchange pre-flight and post-flight data with the airline’s back-office systems directly from the cockpit.
“As an active participant in the FAA Capstone program it was imperative that Atlas Air select a best in class solution for the management of data on and off the EFB. In addition the Flightman™ modular approach means we can incrementally deploy additional functionality on the EFB as our business requirements grow”, said Jeff Carlson, VP Flight Operations, Atlas Air Inc.
“We are excited to begin the EFB software implementation with Atlas Air and believe that the Flightman™ solution will facilitate the streamlining of existing operational processes with Atlas Air”, said Joe McGoldrick, Chief Executive, AMT.
AMT has won several awards for its business focused EFB solution and has continued to expand its operations in the international aviation industry. AMT now boasts an impressive customer portfolio of airlines worldwide.
