FAA Approves Use of Jepp Chart App for Operator; Trees Rejoice!
In a precedent-setting move, the FAA recently approved the use of an iPad App as an alternative to paper aeronautical charts for charter airline Executive Jet Management. The approval for the Jeppesen Mobile TC App for iPad came after a three-month evaluation that involved both the FAA and members of Executive Jet Management. The authorization allows pilots to use iPad and the Jepp App as the sole reference to electronic charts, even during taxi, takeoff, and landing. According to Executive Jet Management, pilots involved with the evaluation were impressed with its ease-of-use, speed, and display clarity.

In a press release, Jeppesen President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Van Tine commented, “This serves as a model for how the FAA can be engaged in working through a challenge and defining a solution that moves the industry forward safely and efficiently.”
