Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, continues to expand its library of available training e-book titles, which provide a convenient option for mobile learning. New titles added to the Jeppesen training e-book collection include “Aircraft Gas Turbine Powerplant Textbook,” “Aviation Weather” and “Aviation Dictionary.”

Jeppesen offers customers delivery of its popular e-book training textbooks and materials directly through its JeppDirect.com site for use with multiple delivery platforms, including Apple iOS and Android devices, and PC and Mac computers. Jeppesen e-book titles are also available through the Apple iBookstore for iOS devices, including iPad and iPhone.

The new Jeppesen training e-book titles supplement its total training solution for student pilots and mechanics, flight schools, universities, current pilots and aviation maintenance technicians. A total of 12 Jeppesen e-book training titles are now available, including the popular Jeppesen Guided Flight Discovery and A&P Technician series.

“The expansion of our e-book library allows for student pilots to determine the format for delivery of training materials that best meets their individual needs,” said Julie Filucci senior manager, Jeppesen Aviation Training Solutions. “E-book versions of our training programs provide a highly interactive learning environment that is easily accessed in the classroom, in the lab or at home.”

Jeppesen e-book training programs feature highlighting, bookmarking, note taking and search capabilities to enhance learning. Users are also able to use hyperlink functionality to access additional Web-based information for student learning. Once downloaded, Jeppesen e-books do not require an internet connection, so students are able to access e-book features on the go.
