Expanded European VFR enroute data, graphical NOTAM/TFR data and split data download capabilities now offered by Jeppesen

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Jeppesen, a unit of Boeing Digital Aviation, today continues introduction of new features and expanded European coverage areas for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR on iPad.  New app capabilities include expanded VFR enroute data for European countries, graphical NOTAM and temporary flight restriction (TFR) updates and a split data download capability to increase efficiency for private pilots.

The latest expansion of European Mobile FliteDeck VFR coverage now includes Italy, after recently adding Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg coverage areas.  European VFR enroute data is now offered in Ireland, Denmark, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Croatia, Spain and Portugal through Mobile FliteDeck VFR.  For Jeppesen customers subscribing to the Mobile FliteDeck VFR 'all available countries' option, VFR enroute data is provided at no additional charge.

"With our new enhancements for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR, we again integrate new features to enhance the overall private pilot flying experience," said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management.  "As we move forward with establishing new coverage areas, expanding enroute data availability and incorporating new capabilities, we continue to expand our vision to enable enjoyable VFR flying."

Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR enroute data includes topographical information, terrain, obstacles, airspace, NAVAIDs, and VFR waypoints.  Primary airport data, including elevation, runway length, communications and main frequencies are now available, as well as METARs, TAFs and NOTAM information through Mobile FliteDeck VFR.

After recently adding 'NOTAM pinning' capabilities, Mobile FliteDeck VFR now offers graphical NOTAMs and TFRs that are available at a glance on seamless VFR maps.  Pilots are now able to manage NOTAM and TFR views by choosing between displaying all notices or pilot-pinned notices.  To better manage the wealth of data available for download, pilots can choose to split the download process to target only relevant VFR coverages and topographical data, determined per pilot preference.

Jeppesen will offer additional exciting Mobile FliteDeck VFR capabilities in the near future, after recently unveiling 'airspace warning,' 'NOTAM pinning' and 'track vector' capabilities and the current new features.  These enhancements include layered, graphical weather data, with detailed route and approach and departure weather planning capabilities.  Auto zooming functionality between enroute and terminal maps is also planned for introduction.

Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR is available for a free download and trial phase through the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.  For more information on Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR, videos, tutorials and insights into the design and development team, please visit www.jeppesen.com/flitedeck-vfr.
