Jeppesen Charts Operational on A380 EFB
Jeppesen, Englewood, Colo., said it successfully implemented its global library of digital terminal charts, including approaches, arrivals, departures, and airport diagrams, with the Airbus A380 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB). Qantas, the launch customer for this service, recently took delivery of the first Airbus A380 equipped with Jeppesen electronic charts and is operational now. Jeppesen is also working with Singapore Airlines to deliver electronic charts for its Airbus A380s. Jeppesen electronic charts can be used in all phases of flight. Jeppesen said its electronic charts can be displayed in a day or night mode, and configured for multiple views, such as full chart, or combinations of the header, plan view and minimums.
