Weather Elements Included In The New FliteStar Version Includes AIRMETs, SIGMETs

Also Announces New Flitestar Version For Enhanced Weather Data

Jeppesen introduces avionics data solutions to support leading light sport and experimental aircraft original equipment manufacturer (OEM) providers, including Advanced Flight Systems, Dynon Avionics, Garmin and MGL Avionics. The avionics data offering serves as part of a total Jeppesen light sport and experimental aircraft solution suite for both certified and non-certified aircraft.

For light sport and experimental aircraft avionics systems, Jeppesen provides NavData navigation information, obstacle data and electronic charting, in addition to aviation parts and supplies offered through partner company Aviall. Jeppesen’s partnerships with leading OEM providers assures light sport and experimental aircraft pilots a secure data source for their avionics systems and assists pilots with reducing paper in the cockpit by transitioning to digital information solutions.

“Our experimental aircraft customers are able to customize their avionics data display to their preference, and they expect their data to be accurate, such as airspeed indication. Similarly, they also expect that navigation data presented is accurate and up-to-date,” said Matt Liknaitski, president of MGL Avionics, U.S. “For this reason, MGL Avionics is very excited to be able to offer the ability for our customers to select Jeppesen as a source for their navigation data, to ensure their avionics systems are connected to the best aviation navigation databases onboard.”

Jeppesen provides the only true, consistent worldwide electronic chart coverages, generated from the most extensive navigation database available for light sport and experimental aircraft. Jeppesen navigation data updates are available online, through the Jeppesen Services Update Manager system.

“Jeppesen not only provides reliable navigation information, but we also offer state of the art online training programs to introduce the excitement of the light sport and experimental aviation industry to a new generation of innovative aircraft enthusiasts, ”said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management

The company also took the wraps off a new version of its new FliteStar flight planning program that now includes enhanced global weather data services on Thursday. Jeppesen FliteStar users will now be able to improve situational awareness through receiving continually updated weather information. Weather data is now presented through multiple customized graphical formats displayed according to FliteStar coverage area, user preference and flight plan.

The company says its ground-based FliteStar version 9.5 presents users with a dynamic graphical view of the weather environment in both enroute and profile views and reduces the need to switch between enroute and weather displays. Jeppesen weather data now aligns with the FliteStar coverage area purchased and weather download overlay displays are presented on enroute charts and are updated automatically through an Internet connection.

The new version of the FliteStar program provides a new tool to view current weather at or near time of departure plus forecast weather along a route and at a user’s planned destination. The weather service combines current data from the National Weather Service and other sources, including NEXRAD mosaic data and includes critical icing and turbulence information.

“The new FliteStar version 9.5 allows our customers to view vital weather information in a new graphical format that is customized for the needs of individual users,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “FliteStar users can now display from zero to nine graphical weather elements simultaneously and are assured of receiving the same world-class quality of reliable weather data from Jeppesen that they have come to expect from the past 25 years of our FAA-validated weather data service.”

Weather elements included in the new FliteStar version includes AIRMETs, SIGMETs, radar, lighting, surface analysis, METARs, icing, turbulence and wind data. A new weather toolbar gives users the ability to display or close these graphical elements, according to user preference. A new “chart time slider” feature allows users to view current weather for the flight plan and a new “weather legend” graphical element shows all currently displayed weather elements. An “icing” display bar allows users to formulate an ice-avoidance strategy and flight plan before leaving the ground.
