In fact, in a recent report by the Aircraft Electronics Association,itwasfoundthatworldwideaviationavionicssales were 6.9% higher than in 2012 at US$2.4 billion annually, 54% of which was for new aircraft and 46% for retrofits.i Increasing the electronics capabilities aboard and aircraft has many advantages. For instance, it can reduce pilot workload while enhancing mission capabilities. Electronics are also needed for increased situational awareness and avoidingobsolescence issues,aswell aslivinguptothe demandsof passengers for greater functionality while inflight. Perhaps most importantly, new and changing regulatory requirement often involve the need for upgraded electronics systems on airplanes. And yet despite the enthusiasm for the use of electronicsin aircraft, there are many issues yet to be ironed out. Issues of safety crop up frequently with concerns about data breeches and system controls, while others raise alarms about the added weight of increasing the amount of electronic hardware onboard. The following is a brief overview of some of the biggestissuesfacedbythe industryasitgrapples with how to improve functionality and comfort without compromising costs and security.
