OSHKOSH — At this week’s AirVenture, Jeppesen introduced new features and functionality for Mobile FliteDeck version 2.6, designed to enhance situational awareness and simplify access to flight information.
The iPad-based cockpit solution now features a refreshed iOS 7-based design and provides general and small business aviation pilots with the ability to share flight information between devices.
The new version of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck now provides an improved ability to integrate flight planning data. Pilots will now be able to render SID and STAR departure and arrival runway information and create user-defined waypoints on the enroute map to increase situational awareness. An improved database search capability allows pilots to better access critical flight information at the time it is needed, company officials said.
“The user-focused design of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck allows us to integrate key features and functions to improve workflow capabilities and access to critical information, based on individual pilot preferences,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “Shared data between devices and improved enroute and weather data interaction increases situational awareness to improve the overall flying experience.”
Greater pilot control of information display and configuration of Mobile FliteDeck elements based on user preferences will lead to a simplified flying experience, according to Jeppesen officials.
A new “Flight Info Drawer” feature of Mobile FliteDeck allows pilots to create, load, view, and save active flight data from either the terminal charts view or the enroute view. New device-to-device route sharing includes origin, destination and any alternate airports. Navaids, waypoints, (including
user-defined waypoints), airways entered into the route description and selected terminal charts for the flight are also included.
Mobile FliteDeck also includes enroute weather data display for icing, turbulence, winds aloft, radar and surface observations.
Jeppesen also announced at AirVenture a new structure for Mobile FliteDeck data subscriptions, with 10 global coverage options available.
