New Jeppesen Customers: Part 3 – Why Choose Jeppesen Charts and Data?

Welcome to part 3 of our introduction series to new customers!

There are many different aviation charts in the market, either as paper or as electronic versions; some are only national, others are international, but not all are covering all airports; most need to be purchased, some are free-of-charge; there are the versions of national authorities and those of profit-organizations; etc.

Why should you choose Jeppesen charts and data?

2. IFR Chart Enhancement projects increase your Jeppesen experience

As we always strive to increase your positive Jeppesen experience with our charts and our data, one aspect of these enhancements refers to a new design of SID and STAR procedure charts. The philosophy behind this chart enhancement initiative is to help increase situational awareness, reduce heads-down time and lower the likelihood of inadvertently violating flight restrictions.

As each chart has to be built up new from scratch, it means that for some time there are 2 standards, the older “legacy” one and the new one ( currently around 75% fulfillment ).

Please have a look on the ten enhancements on the depiction below. Some of the more notable ones include true-to-scale depiction, the addition of terrain, and the distinctive use of color.

Human factors testing confirmed the intuitiveness of this tremendous effort to offer you even better data in all your flying situations:
