Modules

Paperless Flight Bag™ incorporates over 20 different airborne and ground-based modules which are customized to match your EFB platform requirements.  Each module serves a specific purpose and satisfies a particular need for each operator in relation to the type of operation and deployment steps desired. In addition to integrating 3rd party applications into the PFB™ platform, IFS provides a robust selection of multifunctional applications, developed in-house, to meet its client’s needs.  All Paperless Flight Bag™ Modules are compliant with EASA as well as FAA EFB Guideline rules concerning structure, design and security and can be customized to fulfil local regulations.

Definitions

EFB Modules are usually defined as a specific functionality having its own clearly defined purpose and area. IFS incorporates a variety of Modules (Document Library, Journey Log Reporting, Electronic Flight Planning, Performance, Loadsheet, eReporting, etc.) into its platform. Each module serves a specific purpose and satisfies a particular need of the airline and its operations.  IFS works with its own Modules and those from 3rd Parties, either as fully integrated Modules or as partially integrated Modules.

Custom Made Modules

In addition to providing an effective EFB platform which can incorporate 3rd party Modules, IFS creates a number of custom made modules for its clients.  These include OFF-Line Landing Performance Module for iOS, M & B/eLoadsheet Module, Electronic Flight Planning Module, Voyage/Journey Log reporting Module, eReporting Module and some back-office algorithms for data mining and KPI settings.

3rd Party Modules

IFS’ goal is to give its EFB platform customers the freedom to pick and choose the best Modules available on the market. IFS strives to incorporate and integrate these 3rd party services into the EFB Platform.  We are constantly expanding the list of services and integration options that are available.
