Jeppesen, a unit of Boeing Flight Services, now offers a complete suite of its industry-leading pilot training textbooks as e-book selections for iPad. Available for download through the Apple iBookstore, Jeppesen’s industry-leading e-book titles now include Instrument/Commercial pilot training, Multi-Engine airplane training, and Flight Instructor training from Jeppesen’s Guided Flight Discovery series, and Federal Aviation Regulations/Aeronautical Information Manual (FAR/AIM) and FAR/M regulation reference guides.
Student pilots are now able to complete their entire ground study process, spanning Private Pilot through Flight Instructor training, solely using Jeppesen e-books titles. The new Jeppesen titles build on the success of Jeppesen’s established e-book training series that includes the Private Pilot Guided Flight Discovery manual and the A&P Technician General, Airframe and Powerplant training materials. Jeppesen e-books enhance the total training solution designed for student pilots and maintenance technicians, flight schools, universities and current pilots and aviation mechanics.
Jeppesen training e-books provide greatly increased functionality compared to traditional printed textbook learning. Student pilots and users are now able to access the same training information as printed materials, with enhanced capabilities such as on-screen search, highlighting, hyper-linking, bookmarking, note taking and font size adjustment features.
“Having the complete collection of Jeppesen pilot training textbook and reference titles available on iPad as e-books eliminates cumbersome paper-based materials and enhances the learning experience through a more dynamic presentation of information,” said Julie Filucci, senior manager, Jeppesen Aviation Training Solutions. “As the next generation of pilots prepares to take to the skies, we are excited to provide an iPad-based solution that allows for completion of all ground-based training programs via e-books, from private to commercial pilot training.”
Jeppesen e-books help student pilots save on training expenses by eliminating paper-material shipping costs, especially beneficial for international student learning. Revisions and updates to Jeppesen e-books training materials are also provided on a much quicker timeline, compared with traditional printed materials.
Additional functionality for Jeppesen e-books is planned with future versions, which will include embedded video, audio, animation and social media connection components, depending on device capabilities. Currently available on iPad, additional mobile and desktop platforms are being evaluated as Jeppesen e-book delivery options.
