Enabling your Switch to an Efficient, Paperless Cockpit
Yes, the worldwide aviation switch to electronic charting is well underway. And making the switch to an e-chart solution is as easy as choosing your hardware platform, and the Jeppesen e-chart software that's best for you.
Jeppesen e>charts work with most multifunction displays (MFD), Tablet PC/Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) and desktop computers. Simple as that. Just make sure they meet our recommended system requirements. While we cannot guarantee system performance or recommend a specific hardware manufacturer, we've included a list of hardware manufacturers that are compatible with our software. Most of these manufacturers state that the units have been tested for altitudes up to 10,000 feet. However, we recommend you contact the individual manufacturer regarding altitude limits on your specific unit and to discuss your individual flight limits specifically.
An MFD mounts in the control panel, making e>charts an integrated part of your cockpit. Contact the individual manufacturer to ensure the best MFD model for your aircraft.
An easy way to make the transition to Jeppesen e>charts is by using your home PC and printer. This gives you the additional benefit of printing out your charts at home to use in the cockpit- either as backup or as your primary charts while you get more acquainted with the capabilities of e>charts. Please refer to our system requirements.
Tablet PC/Electronic Flight Bags
A tablet PC is a portable electronic display that can be taken into the cockpit. An EFB can either be a portable unit or hard-mounted into the cockpit. There are many high-quality options from trusted manufacturers. Again, please review our system requirements when evaluating your hardware choices.
Handheld Echart Reader
For a simple paper chart replacement Jeppesen offers an eChart Reader subscription service that allows you to take your IFR subscription into the cockpit using the FX10 Personal Aircraft Information Manager. With this new subscription service you can choose your coverage area from a small area to world wide coverage all on a light weight device that displays charts electronically even in a brightly lit cockpit.
Choosing your software to begin enjoying the powerful benefits of e>charts is simple. All that's required is deciding if you want only JeppView electronic charts–or to have them integrated with our FliteStar flight planning software via the NavSuite bundle.
Here's a quick overview of your software options:
