EFOS contains a “dispatch” area for the delivery of flight folders to crew members, overseas bases and other out-stations. Operations staff prepare and upload this information on a per flight basis, by placing relevant and required documents into placeholders on a template. Templates are fully customisable but typically contain operational flight plans, crew briefs, weather data and images, commercial briefs, VIP lists, and so on. Controlled versions of flight folders can be released partially on in full in order to distribute documents in a timely manner.
Electronic flight folders are available to crew using EFBs or iPads at any location with an internet connection; hotel, simulator, crew-rooms or from home.
