Customers of Avidyne’s Entegra Release 9 and Entegra Multi-function Displays (MFD) who have CMax Chart subscriptions from Jeppesen can now download a free version of their charts for use on an Apple iPad.
“Jeppesen has developed an easy-to-use iPad application, Jeppesen Mobile TC, that allows general aviation pilots to receive all the information from their standard Airway Manual and VFR Manual in an easy-to-use electronic format,” said Thomas Wede, Jeppesen senior vice president and general manager, Aviation. “Now, Avidyne MFD customers with CMax can download an iPad App to view their current chart subscriptions at no additional charge.”
“Avidyne and Jeppesen recognize the situational awareness benefits of electronic charts in the cockpit, and a large percentage of our Entegra Flight Deck and EX-Series MFD customers fly with CMax Charts,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are delighted to offer our customers this valuable Jeppesen iPad solution that provides a redundant, safety-enhancing piloting tool.”
Jeppesen Mobile TC is available for free download for the iPad at the Apple App Store. Charts subscription services are available through Jeppesen. Each paid subscription includes four “seat licenses.” Typically, a pilot will dedicate one for their panel-mounted MFD, one for use on their home computer, and one for a laptop, leaving one that can be used for the iPad.
CMax is Avidyne’s implementation of Jeppesen’s JeppView U.S. and European Electronic Airway Manual chart service, which is hosted on Avidyne Entegra Release 9 Flight Deck displays and on EX-Series Multi-Function Displays (MFD). CMax displays electronic terminal/approach charts and airport diagrams on Avidyne MFDs, including an overlay of the pilot’s flight plan and present position.
