Rapid Decompression Tests On New Generation iPads Successful

Jeppesen Evaluates The 4th Generation Tablet, New iPad Mini

Rapid decompression tests of a new iPad (4th generation) with Retina display and iPad mini  have been successfully completed by Jeppesen, proving device integrity in the unlikely event of sudden cabin pressure loss. The successful tests were completed to an altitude of 51,000 feet and are part of the program used by operators to obtain FAA authorization for in-flight use of Jeppesen’s mobile app solutions on iPad.

Jeppesen completed similar tests of a representative iPad, iPad 2 and iPad (3rd generation) when each tablet was introduced to the market by Apple. No anomalies were detected during testing of any of the iPad models. The new iPad mini and updated iPad (4th generation) are both designed to run existing iPad apps, including those from Jeppesen, “as is.”

The Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck app for consumer use is available for download at no additional charge for Jeppesen digital data subscribers through the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore/. To use the app, customers need a digital JeppView or Express JeppView subscription. For details on enterprise use, please contact Jeppesen.
