Today, Dassault Falcon and Jeppesen signed an agreement to develop new performance software and services to be incorporated into the Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) in the Falcon family of business jets.
Thanks to this new software, take off and landing calculations will be easily performed during mission preparation by the flight crew. The software runs on any PC or EFB featuring the Windows operating system. Dassault will be responsible for updated performance information, computation modules and performance data. Jeppesen will provide and update airport, runway information and obstacles.“This Dassault/Jeppesen partnership will give Falcon customers the benefit of precise performance information for each take off and landing and will significantly decrease crew workload during mission preparation,” said Jean-Paul Pellissier of Dassault Aviation.
“Jeppesen is pleased to provide this important performance service to both new and existing Falcon Jet customers,” said Greg Bowlin, Jeppesen senior vice president, Business & General Aviation. “The EFB is a proven asset for operators and provides convenient access to important information for planning and operational purposes such as aircraft performance using Jeppesen's proven airport and obstacle data.”
These new tools and services will be available as an option to new and existing Falcon customers at the end of next year.
