Jeppesen unveils Mobile FlightDeck VFR

OSHKOSH – Jeppesen has introduced Mobile FliteDeck VFR, a new iPad-based navigation and planning solution designed specifically for private pilots in the continental U.S. operating under visual flight rules (VFR) conditions.

Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR is now available with numerous charting navigation coverage options, including full-U.S. VFR coverage with a $49 annual data subscription, company officials said. Previously introduced for European pilots, the new VFR mobile app for iPad builds on Jeppesen’s mobile architecture and was designed in close coordination with VFR pilots to enhance specific workflow capabilities.

  1. I think it’s great that Jeppesen has created a new flight planning product. However, only making this product for the Ipad platform leaves many hundreds of Android users still waiting for a real good program to put on their devices. We don’t want to have to reinvest in new hardware to have access to the best navigation products.

  2. Many of us out here want an Android version of the MFD VFR software. You’re leaving a lot of us out since we’ve already invested in the Android platform and don’t want to have to buy into the whole overpriced Apple hardware game. Are there any thoughts along this line?
