“This 1,000th order clearly illustrates the success of the product. Our modification has proved to be a very cost-effective and user friendly solution which is recognised by customers all over the world. Its success also proves our capability to develop affordable modifications for all aircraft types,” said Bert Leijen, Product Manager Modifications of GKN Fokker Services.
 
GKN Fokker Services’ portable EFB solution for iPad is EASA certified. Easy installation ensures that the aircraft can be converted in very limited downtime at the lowest cost in the market. The EFB solution can also be delivered with a special connection to show, for example, Aircraft Moving Map (AMM) on the iPad. GKN Fokker Services’ EFB solution is approved for almost all regional and long haul transport aircraft types ranging from Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer to Fokker and is used all over the world by many customers.
