Posted 1 February 2018 · Add Comment

Boeing, through its subsidiary Jeppesen, has added new chart and navigation data coverage areas in South Africa for its leading iPad-based Visual Flight Rules cockpit application for private pilots – Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR.

“The addition of South African coverage areas opens new geographical flying territories for users of Mobile FliteDeck VFR and expands our global general aviation presence with this strategic market,” said Tim Huegel, director, Flight Deck Solutions, Boeing Global Services. “We also have added capabilities for Mobile FliteDeck VFR that are based on pilot input, to improve the VFR flying experience and enhance access to essential flight information on the ground and in the air.”

New VFR-based data coverage areas include South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland and are now available as a subscription purchase, featuring identical charting and navigation capabilities of other global coverages.

Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR simplifies complex procedures and presents critical flight information and real-time data that is uniquely displayed per the preference of the pilot. To enhance flight safety, new Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) approach and departure corridor overlay data has been added to Mobile FliteDeck VFR, including more than 100 in Europe, which increases in-flight situational awareness.

Other recent enhancements include automatic flight logging and flight track recording, designed to simplify the flight recording process for pilots. Improved iCloud synchronization provides better access to data and bi-weekly Jeppesen NavData updates provide more timely and current navigation database information.
