Jeppesen has joined forces with SOLIDFX and iRex to provide pilots with a new way to view and manage Jeppesen electronic terminal charts with a portable e-reader device.
Jeppesen’s vector graphic electronic charts, displayed on the FX10 system by SOLIDFX, give pilots access to approaches, standard instrument departures, standard terminal arrival routes and airport diagrams. Jeppesen en route charts are provided in paper form for effective viewing of large areas.
“An e-reader device makes it easier and more economical than ever for pilots to bring electronic charts to the flight deck,” said Thomas Wede, Jeppesen senior vice president and general manager, aviation. “The replacement of paper documents with electronic images and data is gaining momentum all across the aviation landscape. In SOLIDFX and iRex, we saw partners with the experience and expertise to bring Jeppesen electronic charts to another class of portable devices, making them more accessible to a greater number of pilots.”
The FX10, based on iRex Digital Reader 1000S, can be used for reading e-books, newspapers and .pdf files, in addition to Jeppesen electronic charts.
The full complement of Jeppesen electronic chart coverages, including a complete worldwide coverage, is available. All Jeppesen electronic chart subscriptions are updated every two weeks and updates can be downloaded using the Jeppesen Software Update Manager (JSUM).
