Astronics device approved for Boeing 737 use

The Federal Aviation Administration certified an Astronics Corp. device, called the webFB Electronic Flight Bag, for use on Boeing 737 aircraft.

It was the first time that a wireless aircraft interface device was certified for use in the flight deck by the FAA. The device allows airlines to securely connect their electronic flight bags – which help flight crews manage a variety of functions – to avionics data.
