Jeppesen introduced the aviation industry’s first integrated navigation data service (INDS) iPad solution, which allows for a direct connection–via Wi-Fi–between the Apple tablet and an aircraft’s avionics system. First available for the Pilatus PC-12 NG, the iPad app will manage cloud-based, wireless data updates for installed Honeywell Primus Apex avionics that are paired with the Aspen Avionics CG-100 Connected Panel. The new INDS iPad app is expected to be available this summer.

According to Jeppesen, “The iPad-based INDS data manager simplifies the update process for PC-12 NG pilots and flight departments by providing a remote connection to load critical Jeppesen and Honeywell flight data to onboard Honeywell avionics.” It delivers wireless download and upload of navigation databases, access to subscription service information, advanced filtering and auto-login functionality.

“Jeppesen and Honeywell have teamed to simplify the data loading experience and increase efficiency for PC-12 NG operators using installed avionics systems,” said Jeppesen OEM client management director Scott Reagan. “Eliminating manual loading of flight data onboard through use of the iPad app allows for completion of a quicker pre-flight routine, all through a few taps of a finger onscreen.”
