Jeppesen Supplementary Information Booklets Increase Efficiency for UK Based Air Ambulance Operator AirMed

Air Ambulance operator uses Jeppesen booklets to supplement digital EFB information

Englewood, Colo. | 06 Jul 2011 | By Jeppesen

UK-based air ambulance operator AirMed now uses Jeppesen supplementary information booklets to increase operational efficiency and to integrate the most current paper-based flight information available in the business aviation marketplace. AirMed recently received operational approval for Class 1 electronic flight bag (EFB) use in the cockpit for its Learjet 35A fleet and partnered with Jeppesen to receive paper-based supplementary information booklets as backup material for text-based flight information.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to work so closely with Jeppesen and come up with a solution that not only benefits ourselves, but will also benefit all of our colleagues within the industry,” said Jane Topliss, manager, Business Development, AirMed. “The time that we will save by not having to file revisions and being able to throw away the out-of-date booklets and replace them with the new ones will be extremely valuable to small operators like us. Due to the nature of our worldwide air ambulance business and with many of our flights being emergency launches, we need to ensure that we have the best information immediately at our fingertips.”

Currently, AirMed carries one EFB unit on board their aircraft and back-up supplementary information needs to be carried, per regulations. The supplementary information booklet solution from Jeppesen eliminates the need for pilots to file paper-based revisions, saving time and operational cost for the operator.

Jeppesen provides supplementary information booklets for tailored digital charting service customers and partnered with AirMed to meet the needs of this critically important business aviation operator. Jeppesen supplementary information booklets are available with worldwide coverage for business aviation operators.
