  • Abstract:
    Over the past few years, the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) has developed several tools that can be used to evaluate Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) from a human factors perspective. The tools are needed because EFBs are sophisticated devices that may be approved for use through a relatively abbreviated process, in accordance with the guidance in the 2003 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) on EFBs (AC 120-76A). The newest tools were developed in coordination with the FAA Aircraft Certification Service and Flight Standards Service. They are documented in a draft FAA document known as the “EFB Job Aid.” In this paper, the use of all of these different tools is described briefly, and the tools are compared and contrasted.
