webFB Wireless EFB

Avionics Data Connectivity for Portable EFBs

World's First Wireless AID FAA Approved for Use in the Flight Deck

The ultra-compact webFB® easily fits in the palm of the hand, yet incorporates the capabilities of both an AID and a wireless server. The built-in AID safely gathers essential data from the aircraft's ARINC 429 and 717 databuses and conveys it to custom software or EFB apps hosted on the internal server. Using a wireless connection to portable EFB tablets, the webFB securely delivers this valuable information right to the fingertips of the flight crew.
