Jeppesen Adds Audio Warnings Feature To Mobile FliteDeck VFR

Other New VFR App Functionality Includes Automatic Flight Time Logging To Simplify Flying

Jeppesen recently teamed with renowned audio specialist and aviation headset provider Sennheiser to introduce automatic audio warnings as a new feature of its popular flight information solution for private pilots who fly under visual flight rules – Mobile FliteDeck VFR.

The new Mobile FliteDeck VFR audio warning functionality adds another data-driven, or real-time, presentation of flight information for pilots. Using Sennheiser's leading S1 Digital headset, pilots are now able to connect to the app via Bluetooth wireless technology and receive real-time critical airspace and waypoint audio warnings. This enhances pilot workflow and reduces manual interaction and "head down" time while using the app on iPad.

"The introduction of automatic audio warnings with Mobile FliteDeck VFR adds a new layer of situational awareness that reduces reliance on graphical visual warnings on screen," said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. "Paired with Sennheiser headset technology, this new sound warning capability will help private pilots remain 'head up' while flying, especially in critical airspace and while monitoring waypoints." 

When flying in or near controlled airspace, pilots using Mobile FliteDeck VFR now will receive both visual and audio warnings to ensure pilot airspace awareness. Both "ping" style sounds and spoken word "airspace" warnings alert pilots to current airspace details. Similar audio and visual waypoint alerts also are now available if the pilot has defined route waypoints. Additionally, pilots are able to choose which audio alerts they would like to receive, providing an individualized experience.

"Coupling the clarity and personalized noise reduction of the S1 Digital with the audio cues from Mobile FliteDeck VFR increases the pilot's confidence and comfort when flying in complex airspace. Sennheiser is proud to be associated with Jeppesen in this effort," said David Dunlap, director, Sennheiser Aviation. "The Bluetooth interface to the App is just one of many advanced features of communication and comfort the S1 Digital provides."  

In addition to new audio warning capabilities, Jeppesen also has introduced automatic flight time logging, or "auto log" capabilities to further reduce pilot workload and enhance the "hands free" in-flight app experience.
