GlobalNavSource is excited to announce EFB (Electronic Flight Bag). This app supports paperless operations, and give pilots access to charts, plates, weather, and other data.


*****EFB - Currently Free*****
EFB will be totally free to use until July 1. In addition, anyone who starts using EFB before July 1 will receive an additional two-month free subscription.


*****Focus on Design*****
EFB is designed with extensive user testing, to allow for an easy operation. All functions are just one touch away so last minute runway or approach changes are a breeze. EFB's intuitive design utilizes iPad's gesture-based interface and makes for very pilot friendly operation.

* cache all charts, plates, and airport data for in-flight use
* fast, autocomplete airport search
* quick-swipe between airport plates
* pre-download upcoming data so you are ready to fly when you need to be
* extensive worldwide facility and weather information


*****Data*****
All chart & plate data comes directly from GlobalNavSource, no 3rd party subscriptions required. The GlobalNavSource plates leverage FAA & ICAO symbology in a database that covers the world. GlobalNavSource provides seamless compilations of VFR and IFR chart sources, for the easiest chart-browsing experience.

* IFR High
* IFR Low
* VFR Sectionals
* VFR Terminal Area Charts

Professional users will appreciate the tailored plates for low visibility/SMGCS, Deice, Ramp/Gate, Special Approaches, RNP SAAR, tailored minimums and more.


*****Updates*****
Updates are a breeze. Data updates are handled in the background, while using the app, so using the app is not disrupted. In addition, EFB caches upcoming plates and charts before they are needed, so you are ready to fly.

Updates are accomplished wirelessly and only plates that change are updated. This greatly reduces bandwidth and speeds the update process in comparison to NACO based apps.


*****Weather*****

* METARs and TAFs - view information from thousands of weather stations around the world

* Chart overlays - display METAR weather layers on all chart types


*****Part 135 & Part 121 Operators*****
Part 135 & Part 121 operators require controlled software for FAA approval of paperless ops. EFB 121 is the controlled version of this app. Operators requiring EFB 121 for paperless operations may contact [email protected] for more information.
