Boeing [NYSE: BA], through its subsidiary Jeppesen, today announced new features and functionality of its Mobile FliteDeck VFR iOS-based app for general aviation flying. The new capability to enter user-defined waypoints allow pilots to customize their charting and navigation experience, while new navigational data coverage area options in the Baltic States provide additional territories to enjoy VFR (visual flight rules) flying.
Pilots are also now able to lock and unlock routes in GoFlying mode, to avoid unintended route changes while zooming. Also when in GoFlying mode, pilots are now able to view automatic terminal information service (ATIS) frequency of the destination directly in the app’s Trip widget, to increase situational awareness in the terminal environment. Additionally, NavData updates are now signified with badge update icons for quick confirmation and a new map legend defines key navigational reference points.
“We continue to enhance Mobile FliteDeck VFR to meet the needs of private pilots and provide an expanding array of airspace coverages to explore Europe and beyond,” said Cay Roth, director, General Aviation Sales & Services, Boeing Global Services. “Our commitment to continually improving our Mobile FliteDeck VFR user experience underscores our dedication to flight safety and the enjoyment of flying for the dynamic general aviation community.”
Overall, Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR simplifies complex procedures and presents critical flight information and real-time data on iPad that is uniquely displayed per the preference of the pilot.
