OSHKOSH — Jeppesen will now provide flight data to owners of new Piper aircraft as part of the aircraft purchase process.
Delivery of new purchased Piper aircraft will now include Jeppesen NavData and digital charts onboard and ready for use in flight, Piper and Jeppesen officials announced on opening day of AirVenture.
Piper aircraft equipped with Garmin G1000 avionics will receive a PilotPak data bundle that also includes supplemental databases, including obstacle, terrain, SafeTaxi and airport diagrams, in addition to Jeppesen navigation data.
“Having Jeppesen flight data onboard at the time of new aircraft delivery eliminates a step in the flight preparation process and enhances the overall customer experience,” said Piper Vice President of Sales and Marketing Drew McEwen. “This data service provides trusted flight information that is packaged for the specific needs of pilots as they take to the skies in their newly purchased Piper airplane.”
Jeppesen flight data will now be provided with the purchase of Piper Meridian, Mirage, Matrix, Seneca V, Seminole, Arrow, Archer LX and Archer TC models equipped with Garmin G1000 and G500 avionics and Chartview functionality.
Jeppesen NavData is developed from a comprehensive aviation database, which is composed of more than 1 million records, company officials note. To ensure accuracy, Jeppesen flight information analysts edit and verify approximately 150,000 database transactions generated from worldwide aviation data source documents during every 28-day revision cycle, company officials add.
