Home' Asian Aviation : AAV April 2012 Contents New functions for Lido/eRoute Manual
Lufthansa Systems has unveiled a new version of its Lido/eR-
outeManual electronic navigation charts with enhanced functions
for displaying and configuring the charts. Pilots can now save route
and airport charts with all of their personal settings, such as zoom
levels, and they can select a specific operational flight plan (OFP)
from a number of saved plans.
This and a completely overhauled system architecture significantly
enhance the performance and user-friendliness of the solution, says
Additional configuration and display options make it possible to
adapt the charts to current working conditions or personal prefer-
ences. For example, special use airspaces along the flight path can
be specially marked for extra clarity so pilots can identify these
areas at a glance and quickly use this information in flight.
Additionally, decompression routes can be displayed in their own
layer on the route charts. The display can also be divided into two
fields so that charts comprising several elements can be shown next
to each other with individually adjusted zoom and frame settings.
This applies, among others, to the planview and descent profile
views of the approach charts. The menu bar can be placed on either
the left or right edge of the screen in the new version, designed to
make it easier to use the solution on side-mounted displays.
"The latest version of Lido/eRouteManual is a big step forward,"
said Captain Jörg Pikolin, vice president product management air-
line solutions at Lufthansa Systems. "An improved usability, new
display options and carefully thought-out details make it even easier
for cockpit crews to work with the solution. This enhanced release
shows that our continual dialogue with users around the world pays
Lido/eRouteManual is designed for use with the Lido/FlightBag EFB
solution from Lufthansa Systems as well as other EFB systems. Over
60 airlines around the world are using Lido/RouteManual or Lido/
eRouteManual in their daily operations.
