First Commercial Entity to Gain Qualification
The FAA has certified Jeppesen as
the first company to receive the newly created Qualified Internet
Communications Provider (QICP) certification and only one of two
entities to achieve it. NAIMES, a US government sponsored agency,
is the other.
In November 2002, the FAA issued an advisory circular, AC 00-62,
titled Internet Communication of Aviation Weather and NOTAMs, the
purpose of which was to describe a process and set forth a standard
for ensuring that vendors meet or exceed FAA standards for
security, reliably and accuracy when disseminating weather and
NOTAMs via the Internet. Jeppesen has successfully met or exceeded
all of the parameters set forth in AC 00-62.
For the end users of Jeppesen's
weather and NOTAMs data, typically pilots and dispatchers, the QICP
certification provides an assurance of secure and reliable access
to Jeppesen's data. For Jeppesen it means the Internet can now be
used to deliver weather and NOTAMs to the many customers using
Jeppesen flight planning and operations management systems in
support of their FAR part 121 and 135 operations. Previously these
operators were not able to use Internet delivered information. QICP
certification removes this barrier.
"The fact that Jeppesen is the first and only company to be
granted QICP status, amongst many commercial weather and NOTAMs
providers, affirms our digital information distribution
leadership," said Kevin Collins, senior vice president, Business
and General Aviation. "From a larger perspective, the QICP
certification affirms Jeppesen's key strategy -- the evolution into
a digital information and service provider."
Jeppesen weather and NOTAMs data is accessible from numerous
Jeppesen flight planning and operations management applications,
including FliteStar, JetPlanner, JetPlan.com and OPSControl.
