Included Areas: Atlantic Ocean, Ireland, and United Kingdom
United Kingdom / Ireland - 1611
APPLICATIONS: The following EFB applications are affected:
ALERT SUMMARY: 46 waypoints in Jeppesen NavData Cycle 1611 (EFF 13 OCT – 10 NOV 2016) are missing or were incorrectly renamed to Grid Waypoints. Affected waypoints are in these FIRs:
All missing or incorrectly named waypoints are listed in this alert, and corrective information is provided.
CONSIDER THIS ALERT AND USE CAUTION WHEN REFERENCING WAYPOINTS WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM FOR CYCLE 1611 NAVDATA WITHIN YOUR EFB ENROUTE APPLICATION.
EFFECT AND MITIGATION: During use of EFB in Cycle 1611, users will encounter an “Unable to Find (waypoint)” or “Nothing found for (waypoint)” error message in their applications if any of the missing or renamed waypoints are part of a route string or search. For route strings, the user can replace the waypoint name not found with a corresponding Grid Waypoint Identifier or raw coordinates if no Grid Waypoint Identifier is available. When this is done, the proper routing will be shown in the application. Pilots need to remember to use the correct (actual) waypoint name in conversations with ATC. Cross-reference tables are included in this alert to provide substitute waypoint information for the mitigation.
FINAL RESOLUTION: The affected Waypoints will be corrected for EFB in the next Jeppesen NavData cycle 1612, effective 10 NOV 2016. Until then this Alert will be posted on the Jeppesen Web site.
