Jeppesen unveiled a pre-release, trial version of a VFR planning and navigation iPad app for GA pilots.

Called Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR, the new app has everything pilots need for planning flights and flying with a moving map.

The app takes the pilot right from taxi and departure to enroute navigation with full charting to parking at the destination. It’s been developed with feedback from 500 private pilots, including many from the UK.

A thirty day free trial, which includes information and charting from Germany, France, the UK, Austria and Switzerland is available from the App Store.

A subscription to UK charts – with updates taking place every 28 days – will launch in June, costing approximately £170pa.

A ‘trip’ facility will be available, providing charts for other countries for one month with prices ranging from around £59 to £75.
