Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Digital Aviation, recently introduced version 2.1 of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck for iPad and iPad mini. The new version of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck is now available and provides additional capabilities to further enhance pilot situational awareness and optimizes user interaction.
New Mobile FliteDeck capabilities include the display of own-ship positioning on geo-referenced terminal procedures and an integrated distance measuring tool that minimizes the need for pilot interaction with the app. Mobile FliteDeck also introduces automatic display of airport taxi diagrams based on user-configured speed settings. This switch to airport diagram display can occur directly from a STAR procedure or the enroute map to better support a variety of flying needs and requirements.
“With a deep understanding of the operational needs of pilots in mind, new Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck features have been designed to increase situational awareness and enhance the end-to-end flight experience,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “We continue to evolve Mobile FliteDeck, building on our unique data-driven navigation platform and vector-based charting capabilities, developed per the preferences of the worldwide pilot community.”
Additional new capabilities of Mobile FliteDeck include an enhanced ability to preview and select charts as well as a two finger swipe function to navigate between selected charts. NEXRAD weather data, a custom keyboard that supports Mobile FliteDeck’s innovative night theme, multiple alternate options and the ability to save flights are part of the significant enhancements now offered through the app.
