Jeppesen is sponsoring a free educational webinar series for improving pilot awareness and navigational skills. The Chart Clinic Confidential series of interactive presentations is aimed at increasing general aviation pilot knowledge related to working with aviation navigation information and charts.
Hosted by highly experienced pilots and navigation information professionals, the Chart Clinic Confidential series is scheduled for five sessions throughout 2014.
The series will focus on best practices for accessing and applying critical chart information in all stages of flight. Both digital navigation information and paper charts will be discussed, to provide helpful tips and information for an improved flying experience.
The Chart Clinic Confidential series begins May 15 at 1 p.m. ET. Cleared for Takeoff — highlighting airport diagrams, including how charts are indexed, revision and effective dates, lighting, usable runway lengths, alternate and takeoff minimums, and more.
Other seminars include:
- June 26 at 1 p.m. ET. Climb Via – follow a flight through an obstacle departure procedure and an SID.
- Aug. 14 at 1 p.m. ET. Checking In – enroute charting and symbology are discussed.
- Sept. 25 at 1 p.m. ET. Descend Via examining STAR procedures and destination airports.
- Nov. 6 at 1 p.m. ET. Cleared for Approach – approach charts will be reviewed in detail to help find and access critical information.
“Pilots need to be up to speed with how to read and access charts and navigation information across all phases of flight to safely and efficiently reach their destinations,” said Reggie Arsenault, director, Jeppesen General Aviation Client Management. “The Chart Clinic Confidential series will be a fun and informative educational initiative that will bring our popular chart clinics into the current digital age, considering the expanding use of iPad and mobile solutions in the cockpit.”
