- What is General Aviation? General aviation is the name or term given to all civil aviation aircraft operations with the exception of commercial air transport (CAT) or aerial work (AW). They are flight activities not involving commercial air transportation of passengers, cargo or mail for remuneration or hire, or an aerial work operation such as agriculture, construction, photography, surveying, observation and patrol, search and rescue, aerial advertisement, etc. It covers certain commercial and private flights that can be carried out under both visual flight (VFR) and instrument flight (IFR) rules, such as light aircraft, business and private jets or helicopters. General aviation thus represents the 'private transport' component of aviation. (Quoted from Wikipedia)
- What is an EFB? Electronic Flight Bag (EFBs) provide replacement for the paper reference material pilots typically carry. In order to qualify as an EFB, the system must be capable of displaying information equivalent to the paper products they replace. (Quoted from AC 20-173 of FAA). An electronic display system intended primarily for flight deck or cabin crew member use that includes the hardware and software necessary to support an intended function. EFB devices can display a variety of aviation data or perform basic calculations (e.g., performance data, fuel calculations, etc.). In the past, some of these functions were traditionally accomplished using paper references or were based on data provided to the flightcrew by an airline’s flight dispatch function. The scope of the EFB functionality may include various other hosted databases and applications. Physical EFB displays may use various technologies, formats, and forms of communication.(Quoted from AC 120-76C of FAA)

All features are listed in this graph:
If you are/were a pilot, any licensed pilot or student pilot, we will listen to you, please tell me what you want for a EFB product.
If you have any background related to Aviation, Aeronautical, General Aviation, Aerospace or any related subject, we need your suggestions and advice.
If you have contributed to a project related to GIS (Geographic Information System) or any related project, we need you!!
Basically, it will be a front-end project, so anyone who is good at front-end is wanted.
