Cebu Pacific moves toward paperless cockpit

Cebgo pilots equipped with iPads for EFBs

July 20, 2017 – Leading Philippine airline Cebu Pacific Air (PSE: CEB) has started to roll-out 5th generation iPad devices for its pilots, as it begins to invest in paperless cockpit technology. The iPad will contain the pilots’ Electronic Flight Bags (EFB), an information management device that will help flight crews perform tasks necessary to fly and navigate an aircraft.

CEB has started to equip pilots of its ATR aircraft fleet with the iPad EFBs last week. The ATRs are flown under CEB subsidiary Cebgo and are mainly used for inter-island routes across the Philippines. An initial 70 pilots were equipped with the iPad EFBs, with the carrier targeting to equip all 120 ATR pilots by July 13, 2017.

On the other hand, another 700 CEB pilots, or those flying the Airbus fleet, will be equipped with the iPad EFBs over the next few weeks. The investment in the iPad EFBs forms part of the PHP24 Billion capital expenditure (CAPEX) earmarked by CEB for 2017.

“CEB operates one of the world’s youngest fleet of ATR 72-600 aircraft, which is probably the most technologically advanced turbo-prop currently in commercial service.  To complement the ATR, our investment in the iPad EFB aligns with our goal of operational excellence through the introduction of systems that enhance safety and efficiency in flight operations. With the EFB iPad, aircraft performance software and aeronautical charts are readily available, flight plans are constantly updated, and aircraft documentation and procedures are easily accessed; this is important when time critical decisions need to be made and executed in the flight deck,” said Capt. Sam Avila, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Flight Operations.

“iPad EFBs will also help us reduce our environmental footprint and manage our operational costs. Traditionally, flight manuals, charts, and other documentation used by pilots are all on paper— these paper documents weigh anywhere from 30 to 50 pounds. Going paperless will reduce our cumulative aircraft fuel burn, and consequently our carbon emissions.”

The iPad EFBs display a variety of aviation data such as weather patterns, maps and charts; and perform basic calculations like fuel consumption. These are also enhanced with navigation and situational awareness capabilities to simplify preparation and in-flight procedures, which are critical during times of high congestion or poor visibility. Moreover, CEB’s iPad EFBs come with a docking system that allow for seamless and fast synching and downloading of data to multiple devices.

Initial estimates indicate that CEB would save an estimated 50,000 sheets of paper per year from the full implementation and use of the iPad EFBs. Added to the reduced weight of hard copy manuals in the cockpit, this would translate to a 17 ton reduction in Carbon (CO2) emissions and a five (5) ton cut in fuel consumption.

CEB and Cebgo fly to 37 domestic and 26 international destinations, with over 104 routes spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA. The CEB network operates flights out of six strategically placed hubs in the Philippines: Clark, Davao, Kalibo, Cebu, Iloilo and Manila.

CEB boasts of one of the youngest fleets in the world, with a total of 61 aircraft with an average age of 4.99 years. The CEB fleet is comprised of four Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320 and eight Airbus A330; while the Cebgo fleet is composed of eight ATR 72-500, and five ATR 72-600 aircraft. Between 2017 and 2022, CEB expects delivery of seven A321CEO (Current Engine Option), 11 ATR 72-600, and 32 Airbus A321NEO (New Engine Option) aircraft.

“The Value of Insurance”

Philippines: The stress of the Race gets to Rona

clip_image004

PHILIPPINES (October 28, 2016) – Last episode’s first team, Yvonne and Chloe kicked off leg three with good news – they are heading back to their homeland in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! But first, teams need to travel from Bandung to Jakarta’s Senayan City Mall to purchase their air tickets. At Garuda Indonesia’s office, the teams realize that the earliest flight to KL is the next day at 8.35am.

Right when they land, the teams make a quick dash out. While the other teams are directed to get an airport taxi, Eric asks around for a metered taxi, giving Eric & Rona an advantage. At Menara Great Eastern Building in Kuala Lumpur, teams face their first Roadblock challenge. One of them must rappel down the side of a 300 foot skyscraper to retrieve a flag. Teams that miss the flag or drop it, must attempt the challenge again.

Eric & Rona, Tom & Anita are the first two teams to rappel down while it’s just starting to rain. As Louisa &Treasuri are getting ready, the teams received a lightning warning and they have to head back indoors to wait for the storm to pass. Eric & Rona, Tom & Anita head to KL Sentral Station where they have to take the earliest train to Penang. They are disappointed to find out that the next available train is at 5.50pm, almost 3 hours away, which will give the other teams a chance to catch up.

Once the rain let up, Louisa &Treasuri, Parul& Maggie and Yvonne & Chloe speed down the building easily and they quickly make their way to the train station. Unfortunately, JK & Mike, Alex & Will and Vicky & Rach did not find the flags and they have to retry the challenge again.

Showing that they are resourceful, Louisa &Treasuri are not deterred by the 5.50pm train. They found out that there’s an earlier train at 5.20pm and they decided to ask around for a swap and successfully did so, much to the chagrin of Eric & Rona and Tom & Anita. Parul& Maggie and Yvonne & Chloe managed to get onto the 5.50pm train with Eric & Rona and Tom & Anita. Rach & Vicky went to the wrong train station but they are relieved to find out that there’s an 8pm training, joining JK & Mike and Alex & Will.

The race resets in Penang when the teams rush to the Waterfall Hill Temple, only to find out that it’s closed and will only open after sunrise. Once the temple opens, the teams must make their way up 500 steps to receive their next clue – they have to head to Clan Jetties to search for a clue box among the four Chinese Clan Jetties.

At Clan Jetties, teams face a Roadblock challenge. They must choose between ‘Street Art’ and ‘Street Play’. In ‘Street Art’, teams have to locate a specified number of murals and have their photos taken by a bystander. Each photo taken must satisfy a number of specific poses and tourist participation. In ‘Street Play’, teams have to master 2 minutes of Chinese Opera choreography and perform it in front of a judge.

Alex & Will, JK & Will, Yvonne & Chloe, Rach & Vicky, Parul& Maggie choose ‘Street Play’ while Louisa&Treasuri, Eric & Rona and Tom & Anita choose ‘Street Art’. Both Roadblock challenges prove to be extremely tedious and teams are starting to feel agitated and stressful.

Louisa &Treasuri work their magic with ‘Street Art’ challenge, finding the murals in good time. They quickly complete their challenge and have to head to this leg’s pit stop, located at Hean Boo Thean Temple. At the pit stop, Allan Wu and The Amazing Race Asia season 1 winning team Zabrina& Joe Jer are waiting for the teams and the last team to arrive may be eliminated. Louisa &Treasuri are emotional to find out that they are the first team to arrive while Allan praises them for a job well done.

Alex & Will, Yvonne and Chloe and Tom & Anita are the next three teams to arrive at the pit stop respectively. Team Philippines’ Parul& Maggie and Eric & Rona are the fifth and sixth team to arrive. The stress of the race seems to be getting to Rona, causing her to breakdown at the pit stop.

After much difficulty, JK & Mike finally complete their Roadblock challenge putting them at 7th position, second last place in this leg. Rach & Vicky dejectedly make their way to the pit stop where Allan Wu surprised them that this is a predetermined non-elimination round and they are still in the race!

Rach & Vicky agree that they need to fight less and just focus on the Race.

Coming up in next episode, teams fly to Phuket, Thailand and go up close and personal with the elephants! Teams’ endurance and emotions are tested yet again at the Road Block challenge.

The Amazing Race Asia airs every Thursday at 9pm on AXN. The Amazing Race Asia Season 5 is supported by presenting sponsor Wonderful Indonesia, and partners Garuda Indonesia, Grab and Great Eastern. In the Philippines, Koji-San, Del Monte Heart Smart, Mitsubishi Mirage, Febisco Hi-Ro.

LakbayPasay 101

Ika-18 ng Disyembre, 2014, maaga akong gumising dahil ito ang araw ng aming pagkikita ng aking grupo sa Filipino para gumagawa ng pangkatang proyekto. Aaminin ko na ako ay masaya at sabik ng araw na iyon kaya naging mabilis ang aking kilos ng umagang iyon kumpara sa dati kong kilos.

DSC03338 - Copy

Ang aming lugar tagpuan ay ang STAR CITY sa Pasay City , ika- walo ng umaga sa parking area ng naturang lugar ay dumating ng una si Jean at Carylle. Ako, ang kasunod na dumating na sinundan ni Carl. Sumunod si Kathleen at ang pinakahuli ay sina Benedict, Maxxine, at Christine. Masaya kaming nagkwentuhan at sari-saring mga usapin. Lahat halos ay hindi maubusan ng mga kwento,

DSC03433

Ang una naming destinasyon, ang Cultural Center of the Philippines, dito madalas ang mga pang- sining na tanghalan katulad ng mga konsierto, sayaw, pag-arte at iba . Nasubukan ko na ring makanood ng mga pagtatanghal dito kasama ng aking mga magulang at mga kamag-anak. Ng araw na iyon, inobserbahan namin ang CCP, ang kanyang disenyo at istraktura. Kasabay ng pagkuha ng mga larawan at video ang aming pagtakbo at paglalaro sa malawak na lugar ng CCP. Muling lumabas ang aming pagiging bata.

DSC03454

Sumunod, ang COCONUT PALACE. Ito ang piniling tirahan ng ating Bise Presidente. Kahit gusto naming pumasok sa loob ay hindi namin magawa dahil bawal. Nagtanong kami sa isa’t-isa kung para saan ang lugar na iyon maliban sa pagiging tirahan ngayon ng Bise Presidente ng Pilipinas. Sabi ng aking magulang, dito ginagawa ang mga mararanyang kasalan, pagdiriwang ng malalaking okasyon o pagtitipon. Kaya mula sa aming pagkakatayo ay pinilit lang naming tanawin ito at kinunan na lang namin ng larawan ng pasimple.

DSC03474

Ang Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) naman ang aming sunod na pinuntahan. Katulad ng mga naunang lugar, kami ay masayang nagmasid sa paligid nito kasabay ng pagkuha ng mga larawan. Ang PICC ay lugar na ginagamit sa malakihang kumbensyon ng iba’t-ibang grupo sa Pilipinas. Kadalasan, ginagamit din ito sa pagtatapos ng mga kolehiyong paaralan.

DSC03446 DSC03459

Nasa CCP Complex din ang lugar ng Folk Arts Theatre na ginagamit din sa iba’t-ibang okasyon katulad ng pagtatapos o gawaing pang ispiritual ng mga grupo ng kristiyano at iba pa. At ang lugar ng Manila Film Center of the Philippines na lubhang naging kontrobersyal sa panahon ng rehimeng Marcos dahil sa bilis ng pagpapagawa nito para sa unang International na film fest na ginawa sa ating bansa. Naging malagim ang aksidenteng naganap dito habang ito ay tinatapos. Kaya naman naging tampulan din ito ng kwentong kakatakutan.

Pagod ngunit naging makabuluhan ang aming buong maghapong iyon. Masaya kaming kumain sa Chicken Inasal. Ako ay nag-order ng bangus sisig, katulad ng inaasahan, ang dami naming nakain. Nasulit ang araw na iyon para sa proyektong gawain ng aming grupo. Hanggang sa susunod, sana ay makapasyal muli sa Pasay City.

“ Ang pag lalakbay ay bahagi  na ng ating buhay.  Sa tuwing tayo ay mapupunta  sa iba’t-ibang lugar, dapat  nating  bisitahin  ang  mga makasaysayang pook nito. dahil ang mga makasaysayang lugar na ito  ang siyang nagbibigay kabuluhan sa  ating mga  pinupuntahan at paglalakbay.”

Bohol to hold travel fair in Glorietta Mall Dec. 8-10

AirAsia’s super low fares to Bohol and bargain hotel and tour deals are up for grabs!

Bohol is moving to become the must go destination in the Philippines as it launches   new and exciting tourist destinations with rock bottom prices for airfares, hotels and resorts during a travel fair to be held in Glorietta Mall on Dec. 8-10.

Bohol provincial governor Edgar Chatto said the province will also formally launch its new branding “Behold…BOHOL,” which positions the province as a destination that exudes a sense of awe in every visitor.

The three day event is the first time ever that tourism sector in Bohol comes together in a massive campaign to entice tourists to visit. It is part of the Bohol Tourism Action Plan developed through the collaboration of the United States Agency for International Development through its Advancing Philippine Competitiveness Project (USAID-COMPETE), the Department of Tourism (DOT), the United Nations-World Tourism Organization (UN-WTO), and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) as well as local tourism stakeholders.

Meanwhile, the new branding “Behold…BOHOL” was developed with the help of CNN’s branding expert Anita Mendiratta.  Bohol is the first province that benefited from an outreach program of CNN.

AirAsia, the leading budget airline in the Asian region, is the exclusive airline partner for the campaign and will offer seat sale.  The airline that has been awarded the Skytrax’s World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for six consecutive years is also committed to offer year-round low fares for flights between Manila – Tagbilaran (Bohol) and Manila – Cebu.

At least 50% discount in accommodation, tours and other travel essentials in Bohol will be offered during the three-day travel fair. Boholano products will likewise be on sale.

The travel fair will open in a grand program featuring the world-famous Loboc Children’s Choir. The chorale group will have a nightly concert during the three-day event.

Bohol province is dubbed as the eco-cultural tourism capital with its fascinating  Chocolate Hills, pristine and white sand beaches in Panglao and  Anda.  It is also home to the well-loved Tarsier, considered the smallest and oldest primate in the world.

“We want to develop Bohol as the tourism superpower and a top holiday destination in the Philippines,” said Bohol governor Edgar Chatto.

He said the launch of the ‘Behold… BOHOL’  aims to promote the province as a complete tourist destination because every town has a unique tourist attraction to offer to visitors.

Aside from the iconic destinations, the province is surrounded by caves, tranquil rivers, fascinating water falls, marine sanctuaries, mangroves and diving sites.

Chatto said Bohol is now promoting the powdery white sand beaches of Anda, as the next tourist destination.  Road and infrastructure access to Anda are underway through the convergence program of Department of Tourism and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) that seeks to connect airports to tourist destinations. 

Anda is a must visit in Bohol for its  unique and  wider coastlines making it a perfect destination both for relaxing walk on the beach or water sports activities.

The town is also home to the Lamanok Mystical Island and is fast becoming a popular destinations. Lamanok can be reached within a two-hour drive from the capital, Tagbilaran. The island has a rich lush mangrove protecting the community from flooding, pollution and water surge. It hosts some mystical caves where ancient Boholanons bury their loved ones in jars.
