Jeppesen has completed a successful rapid decompression test of iPad 2. The successful test was completed to an altitude of 51,000 feet, proving the integrity of iPad 2 in the unlikely event of sudden cabin pressure loss, company officials note.
Last year, Jeppesen completed a similar test of a representative iPad as part of a successful program to obtain initial FAA authorization for the Jeppesen Mobile TC charting App. Because of structural changes in iPad 2, Jeppesen determined that a new test was warranted. No anomalies were detected during either iPad testing period.
The Jeppesen Mobile TC App is available from the App Store at no additional charge for Jeppesen electronic navigation charting subscribers.
