Boeing's Jeppesen enhances FliteDeck Pro EFB solution for iPad

US airframer Boeing´s Jeppesen unit said it is offering operators enhancements to its FliteDeck Pro electronic flight bag solution for iPad (NASDAQ: AAPL).

According to Jeppesen, the new FliteDeck Pro version now automatically displays airport taxi diagrams based on user-configured speed settings to enhance airline operational efficiency.

This switch to airport diagram display can occur directly from a STAR procedure, the enroute map or approach procedure to better support a variety of flying needs and requirements.

A new integrated distance measuring tool minimizes the need for pilot app interaction and calculates off-map position distance to improve situational awareness.

Additionally, FliteDeck Pro now includes an enhanced ability to preview and select charts as well as a two finger swipe function to navigate between selected charts. A custom keyboard that supports FliteDeck Pro´s innovative night theme, multiple alternate options and the ability to save flights are part of the significant enhancements now offered for airline operators.
