Jeppesen recently introduced version 2.1 of Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck for iPad and iPad mini.
New capabilities include the display of own-ship positioning on geo-referenced terminal procedures and an integrated distance measuring tool that minimizes the need for pilot interaction with the app, according to company officials.
Mobile FliteDeck also introduces automatic display of airport taxi diagrams based on user-configured speed settings. This switch to airport diagram display can occur directly from a STAR procedure or the enroute map to support a variety of flying needs and requirements.
Additional new capabilities include an enhanced ability to preview and select charts, as well as a two finger swipe function to navigate between selected charts. NEXRAD weather data, a custom keyboard that supports Mobile FliteDeck’s night theme, multiple alternate options and the ability to save flights are part of the enhancements now offered through the app, company officials note.
JeppView data subscriptions are available starting at $78 for Express JeppView coverage options.
