Jeppesen Package Included In Purchase Price
Mooney Airplane Company and Jeppesen have announced a program
which will allow buyers of new Mooney Ovation2 GX, Ovation3 and
Acclaim airplanes to take delivery of their new aircraft with
Jeppesen's NavData services and electronic charts preloaded onto
their Garmin G1000 avionics systems.
"Under this program, all of the Jeppesen hardware and software
required to set up and maintain current NavData and electronic
charts will be included as part of the initial aircraft delivery
package," said David Copeland, Mooney vice president of sales and
marketing. "The beginning of the NavData and electronic charts
subscriptions will coincide with the aircraft delivery date and
will provide customers with extensive, up to date navigational and
operational data that is tailored to their airplane."
The bundle comes with an Aviator bag to holds the G1000 NavData
Starter kit, JeppView digital charts for the Multi-Function Display
(MFD), a binder, tabs, and paper enroute charts, according to the
Kerrville, TX-based planemaker.
Pilots can order navigational information for a variety of
coverage areas, including the full USA, the Central, East, West or
combined Central and East or Central and West options.
International coverage options include Canada and Alaska, Latin
America, South America, Central Europe and Australia. JeppView
revisions are also available for France, Germany, Scandinavia, the
United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as Central Europe.
"We've worked closely with Mooney to make the Jeppesen bundle
easy to order, acquire and use," said Tim Howard, Jeppesen's
Strategic Account Manager, Aviation Data Services. "We've tailored
a website for Mooney operators to simplify the ordering and
updating process and make the integration of the data a seamless
operation. We believe that new Mooney owners will not only be
impressed with the extent and convenience of the Jeppesen Mooney
bundle, but they'll find it a valuable and essential option."
The cost of the initial subscription, software and hardware will
be included in the purchase price of the aircraft. Renewals will be
automatic unless the customer requests otherwise.
Jeppesen provides information and technology-based information
management tool sets essential to navigation and efficient
operations management to air, sea and rail operators. The
70-year-old company is a subsidiary of Boeing Commercial Aviation
Services, a unit of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
