Jeppesen, a unit of Boeing Flight Services, today introduces the arrival of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck version 2.0 for iPad, including the recently introduced iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini. In addition, flexible pricing options for four U.S.-based JeppView data subscriptions are now available, based on two or four device installs. A JeppView data subscription is necessary to use Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck on iPad.
Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck version 2.0 now offers general aviation pilots and business aviation operators enhanced navigation functionality to simplify complex procedures, quickly determine ownship and make decisions based on enhanced situational awareness. The solution eliminates paper-based flight materials and streamlines the entire flight process. Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck 2.0 provides pilots with text and graphical weather services, including display of Echo Tops for North America and global lightning, winds aloft, turbulence, icing, METARS and TAF data. The aviation industry’s first night theme display and the ability to highlight terminal charts with the slide of a finger are now included with Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck.
The software framework of the solution has been redesigned for selecting SID/STAR and approach charts more efficiently and optimizes the display of terminal procedures and enroute charts for both iPad and iPad mini. General aviation pilots are now also able to import flight plans created with Jeppesen’s new MyFlitePlan Online solution to Mobile FliteDeck 2.0, using the MyJeppesen.com portal. Overall, the new version of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck features an enhanced design, based on direct ongoing feedback from pilots and provides additional functionality based on actual workflow and processes in the cockpit
“Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck version 2.0 now offers pilots an enhanced end-to-end flying experience with new features that increase situational awareness and build on our industry-leading, data-driven mobile solutions,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “Combined with our new flexible JeppView pricing structure for four U.S.-based coverages, Jeppesen is now providing pilots with the top flight information available on iPad and offering a choice to meet pilot device needs and budget requirements.”
Providing increased options and flexibility related to JeppView subscriptions allows for significant cost savings for customers requiring fewer device access points. The new pricing model now allows U.S. customers to choose between two or four “installs,” or device access points for Jeppesen data that come with a JeppView subscription, depending on operator need.
By choosing two installs, rather than the standard four, customers will receive an approximate 35 percent savings for the same quality and chart coverage area purchased, applicable to the four U.S.-based chart coverage options. The new JeppView navigation data subscription pricing structure is available for mobile delivery through Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck on iPad or through personal computer access
JeppView data subscriptions are available for general aviation pilots and business aviation operators and provide access to Jeppesen’s leading chart data spanning small regions to worldwide. The discounted two JeppView install pricing is available for Western U.S., Eastern U.S., Central U.S. and Full U.S. digital chart coverages.
