Airbus and NAVBLUE Launch Mission+, the First Electronic Flight Assistant That Maximises Flight Efficiency

Airbus’ Flight Operations subsidiary NAVBLUE has launched Mission+, the first Electronic Flight Assistant (EFA) that provides pilots with all the data and information that they need to perform their mission, via one modular digital solution.

Mission+ has been developed in close cooperation with airlines from various regions around the world.

This mission-centric approach integrates flight management data and documentation, cockpit check-list, navigation charts and airport maps, real time weather conditions, aircraft performance data – usually only available to pilots via multiple sources.

Airbus Pilot, Captain Olivier Aspe, said:

“For us pilots, the user experience offered here compares with moving from an old mobile phone and paper diary to the latest generation smartphone.”

 

Accessible through an interactive display, Mission+ is the first EFA on the market to gather all information together with one single point of entry. For pilots this means an interface that allows quick, easy and seamless navigation.

In compiling data and information in this way, Mission+ is a significant upgrade from the current, widely used Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) and paper on-board cockpits. Pilot workload is optimised and the overall operational efficiency for the airline is improved.

Mission+ has been developed in close cooperation with airlines from various regions around the world, incorporating their feedback. The solution ensures a flexible platform with optional modules that can be customised to airline specific requirements.
