Jeppesen Dives Deeper into Digital Charts
Jeppesen introduced a new Web-based charting solution for the business aviation market. Dubbed Jeppesen eChart Viewer, the online product allows chart access from anywhere in the world and includes an auto-update service that eliminates the need for manual chart updates. Pilots can also print charts on-the-go from any computer, as well as use the included preflight planning tool. Jeppesen eChart Viewer also offers enhanced Jeppesen Airway Manual text in HTML format and provides enhanced IFR and VFR chart viewing and search capabilities. Fractional aircraft provider Avantair is the launch customer for the new digital charting service. In other news, the company released a Jeppesen Mobile TC iPad app for Avidyne multifunction display users who have CMax Chart subscriptions. These customers can now download a version of their same chart subscription for use on the iPad at no extra charge. The new Jeppesen iPad app is a free download at the Apple iTunes Store, but a paid chart subscription is required to view charts.
