Alex Lomas will be presenting: Tampering with airplane performance apps
Electronic Flight bags (EFBs) are typically tablet computers that the pilots use to work out how much power to use in order to safely and efficiently take off and land. We’ll demonstrate vulnerabilities in several popular EFBs, then show how these security flaws can be exploited to jeopardise the safety of a flight. Numerous incidents, some involving hull losses, have occurred over recent years as a result of mistakes or misinterpretation of EFB data. Real incidents involving miscalculation of weight and balance, runway ‘excursions’, tailstrikes and controlled flight in to terrain. What can we learn in ‘cyber’ from aviation safety culture, and how can we help improve cyber in aviation?
We will also be bringing along our immersive A320 flight simulator.
