Boeing enhances Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck
Dallas-based Global Services operates as one of Boeing's three business units. It has formulated enhancements to the electronic flight bag that simplify and automate navigation and data usage in the cockpit.
Boeing Global Services vice president, business and general aviation, William Ampofo has delivered Mobile FliteDeck data-driven enhancements.

Boeing has introduced enhancements to its Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck electronic flight bag (EFB). New features include real-time data capabilities for better decision making and intelligent data processing based on pilot preferences and requirements.

“Introducing new data-driven features for Mobile FliteDeck underscores our commitment to delivering world class EFB data and services for our customers,” says Boeing Global Services vice president, business and general aviation William Ampofo. “These enhancements will simplify the flying experience by making data more accessible and usable in all phases of flight.”

Jeppesen Standard Airway Manual text is now fully indexed and searchable so as to optimise the flight preparation process. Manual data entry is eliminated thanks to a new Organised Track Structure that simplifies international, oceanic flight tracks by automatically plugging in route information based on entered arrival and departure airports. Smart Notes analyse chronological and geospatial flight information to present key data points for pilots automatically and new Standard Instrument Departure/Standard Arrival Routes (SID/STAR) chart data capabilities include own-ship depiction to highlight airplane location on the map in the busy terminal airspace environment. Pilots can now choose specific SID/STAR routing data to fit their unique flight plans and operation.
