An Apple iPAD can now be used for in-flight visualisation of Jeppesen IFR aand VFR charts

Jet Aviation Dusseldorf
recently approved the use of the Apple iPad for in-flight visualisation of
Jeppesen IFR and VFR charts under its Part 21 EASA authority.

Using the Apple iPad as an
Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Class 1 information management device helps flight
crews manage their tasks more easily and efficiently than with paper-based
reference materials. Now our customers’ flight crews can download the Jeppesen
Aviation iPad application to view Jeppesen’s electronic IFR / VFR charts on
their iPad, eliminating the need to read paper charts while in-flight. The
approval is applicable to the first generation of iPad and the iPad 2.

“We aim to ensure our
customers have every possible advantage in terms of safety and efficiency, and
we are pleased to offer the benefits of paperless flying,” says Sebastian
Groeger, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Dusseldorf.
