Jeppesen now provides Class B airspace diagrams on the back side of selected VFR+GPS Enroute paper charts for coverage in North America. Pilots are now able to transition between Jeppesen’s enroute and terminal charts while in the cockpit by turning over the chart for 15 Class B airspace locations in the U.S.
The new 1:250,000 scale depiction of Class B “area chart” airspace on the back of selected Jeppesen VFR+GPS Enroute charts improves situational awareness in the cockpit, according to company officials. Critical Class B airspace flight information is now presented in an improved format that is easy to access for VFR general aviation pilots and flight training programs.
“Jeppesen now provides VFR pilots with the convenience of having two charts in one, when using our VFR+GPS charts for selected coverages that include Class B airspace,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “Transitioning between enroute and terminal, or Class B airspace with this new chart design eliminates the need for two separate charts for these locations and compliments the industry-standard features and benefits of our VFR+GPS chart library.”
Jeppesen VFR+GPS charts are designed for integration with current GPS navigation technology and incorporates traditional best practices for VFR flying, officials said. Jeppesen VFR+GPS charts combine FAA information with Jeppesen cultural, obstacle and terrain database material to provide VFR pilots with flight information depicted by intuitive chart symbols and colors presented in a simple, standardized chart orientation, officials conclude.
