Default Jepp Charts Approved as Alternative to Paper Charts by FAA

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tuaw.com/2011/02/13/ipad-receives-faa-certification-as-an-electronic-flight-bag/' target='_blank'>http://www.tuaw.com/2011/02/13/ipad...nic-flight-bag/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Jeppesen, the company that produces most of the paper and electronic "Jepp charts" used by pilots for preflight planning and inflight navigation, announced late last week that jet charter operator Executive Jet Management has received authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration to use the Jeppesen Mobile TC App for iPad as an alternative to paper charts."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1297640965.usr105634.jpg" /></p><p>All you need is <a href="http://www.otterbox.com/OtterBox-Utility-Series-Latch-for-iPad/APL8-IPAD1,default,pd.html?dwvar_APL8-IPAD1_color=20&amp;start=3&amp;cgid=apple-ipad-cases" target="_blank">one of these</a> to strap your iPad to your knee and you are good to go! I think I would still have the paper ones for a backup, but it's probably helpful they can now use the iPad to flip between the pages. Certainly a lot easier than folding and unfolding a map while you are 20 or 30 thousand feet in the air, or higher depending on the aircraft. The <a href="http://www.jeppesen.com/company/newsroom/articles.jsp?newsURL=news/newsroom/2011/iPad_EFB_authorization_NR.jsp" target="_blank">press release</a> has more details on it, or you can go direct to the <a href="http://www.jeppesen.com/index.jsp" target="_blank">Jeppesen site</a> to see what they offer, or head to iTunes for the free app [<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jeppesen-mobile-tc/id382536356?mt=8" target="_blank">link</a>].</p>
