Subcommittees & Working Groups

Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Subcommittee


The Goal of the EFB Subcommittee is to develop standards applicable to EFB use and implementation. These encompass Class 1, 2, and 3 EFBs utilized by numerous airlines on multiple aircraft types. The standards are comprised of both hardware and software specifications and apply to interfaces, wiring and connectors, data protocols and application control.


The Subcommittee is responsible for maintaining EFB standards. Future developments that impact EFBs or are affected by them will be coordinated through this Subcommittee. Additional issues for investigation may originate from the EFB Users Forum, airlines, suppliers or other AEEC groups.


Benefits of this activity:

  • A wider range of EFB product offerings (hardware and software)
  • Increased competition and lower costs
  • Expanded EFB capabilities
  • Reduced integration effort
  • Cost savings through improved efficiency, reduced fuel consumption and decreased paperwork
