OSHKOSH — At this week’s AirVenture, Jeppesen unveiled new features for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR on iPad. Enhanced capabilities include data-driven auto zooming for real-time accuracy and software improvements to drive flight efficiency.
The new auto zooming capability included with Mobile FliteDeck VFR version 1.5 provides pilots with an automatic, optimal view of the current chart scale, through all phases of flight, company officials said. This ability eliminates the need for the pilot to manually scale the chart or select between terminal and enroute maps, establishing a “hands-off” navigation experience.
Additional enhancements included in Mobile FliteDeck VFR version 1.5 include download management capabilities and significant performance improvements for iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad mini, company officials said.
Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR is available as a free download and trial phase through the App Store on iPad or on iTunes.
VFR data coverage is available with a $49 annual Jeppesen data subscription.
