    Last month, Jeppesen introduced industry-leading FliteDeck Pro electronic flight bag (EFB) solution for Microsoft Windows 8 tablets. Boeing Canada-AeroInfo is proud to have been involved in the software development work that made this game-changing effort happen. Working in close partnership with development teams at Jeppesen, our FliteDeck Pro team developed the UI elements for the release.

    Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro helps streamline the use of navigational information for airlines, fractional business jet operators and military fleet programs. Delta Air Lines is equipping 11,000 pilots with FliteDeck Pro on Surface 2 tablets across its fleet to increase operational efficiency. One feature that the Surface tablets deliver is the ability to open two applications side by side, something that the iPad doesn’t offer, except for apps that allow split windows. An example where this may benefit Surface users is display of weather in one window alongside another window with FliteDeck Pro.

    Flight information, including worldwide navigation charts is delivered to Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro through the JDM Pro enterprise solution. This scalable data management solution distributes encrypted operational data and documents efficiently across a Web-based system, ensuring timely and accurate delivery of current navigational and operational information to pilots and other users. In addition, JDM Pro is designed to work in concert with Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems for end-to-end control of EFB content and devices.

    In addition to highly compressed Jeppesen terminal charts, FliteDeck Pro includes data-driven enroute content, which is dynamically rendered and de-cluttered for the pilot’s task at hand. Information for all enroute charted features is immediately available, including communication information, operational notes and runway details for destination or alternate airports.

    Boeing Canada-AeroInfo congratulates Jeppesen on designing the FliteDeck Pro tool that dramatically increases the navigational efficiency of the world’s pilots – now available in both Mac iOS and Windows 8 for Surface 2 tablets.
