     (1)     In this Schedule:

EFB means electronic flight bag.

IFLD means the in-flight landing distance which is the actual landing distance required for the actual conditions, aeroplane configuration, runway conditions, and aeroplane system integrity using the deceleration devices planned to be used for the landing. The actual landing distance required is obtained by reference to the IFLD data supplied by the manufacturer either through an approved EFB or the aircraft’s Operations Manual.
