[Avionics Today 08-18-2016] China Eastern Airlines recently received authorization from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to operate in a fully digital capacity, using Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro as part of its Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution. China Eastern is the first airline in China to gain paperless operating status.

"Using Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro for charting and navigation with our international operations and our domestic [National Agriculture Imagery Program] NAIP charting data for flights within China provides the foundation for gaining this landmark clearance from the Civil Aviation Administration of China," said Hou Jianjun, managing director of China Eastern Airlines Air Operator's Certificate (AOC).

Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro helps airlines streamline the delivery of flight information and establish paperless flight deck operations. Flight information, including worldwide navigation charts is delivered to Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro through the JDM Pro enterprise solution. This solution distributes encrypted operational data and documents, ensuring timely and accurate delivery of current navigational and operational information to pilots and other users.
