PURPOSE The purpose of this OIT is to inform all Operators of A320, A330, and A340 families that:  AIRBUS received the Operational Suitability Letter (OSL) of the eQRH from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)     AIRBUS started the eQRH deliveries in April 2017 AIRBUS will stop the printing and the delivery of the paper QRH end of 2017 A demo version of the eQRH application for iPad is available on the App Store A demo version of the eQRH application for Windows devices is available in AirbusWorld (Content library/Flight Operations/Miscellaneous) 2. BACKGROUND The AIRBUS eQRH application is an interactive and smart application designed to replace the paper QRH in the cockpit.

3. DESCRIPTION In accordance with customers’ needs to move to electronic Flight Operations, AIRBUS has developed a new fully paperless operational concept for the A320, A330, and A340 families. This new operational concept is based on the use of an electronic QRH instead of the paper QRH, in combination with electronic documentation and EFB performance applications. The EASA and FAA approved this new operational concept and provided AIRBUS with the Operational Suitability Letter (OSL) of the eQRH in February 2017.

The A380 & A350 have already implemented operations based on electronic means via the ECAM. Therefore the first version of the eQRH application is not applicable to these aircraft programmes.

The digital QRH format (XML) becomes the standard format for this document and can be managed using ADOC and FODM tools. AIRBUS will stop the QRH printing and paper delivery at the end of 2017
