Jeppesen Introduces New Flight Planning Capabilities
Jeppesen (Booth 1351) has teamed up with Honeywell to develop what it claims is the first integrated navigation data service (INDS) data manager application for the iPad. It will be available later in the summer, initially for operators of the Pilatus PC-12 NG with the Honeywell Primus Apex integrated flight deck and Aspen Avionics CG100P connected panel. The INDS solution greatly simplifies the update process by wirelessly uploading or downloading critical Jeppesen and Honeywell flight data to the onboard avionics.
Another new offering in which Jeppesen is involved is the Falcon Perf tool from Dassault, which runs in a 32-bit Windows XP environment as part of the EASy avionics suite, or with the 64-bit Windows 7 operating system as part of the EASy II suite. Falcon Perf uses Jeppesen airport and navigation data, along with aircraft flight manual data, to facilitate takeoff and landing performance calculations.
Jeppesen is introducing new features for its FlitePlan Online service, extending the ability of European operators to access Jeppesen’s route optimization engine. Etops capabilities are now provided through the tool, as is a Notam management function to organize critical flight data. FlitePlan Online now also provides central flow management unit validation for flights in Europe.
