FAA OKs Jeppesen EFB Solutions on the iPad mini
The FAA issued Jeppesen a letter of operational suitability that allows the Apple iPad mini to be used in cockpits at commercial operators when the device is paired with Jeppesen’s electronic flight bag (EFB) solutions. This letter covers both the iPad mini with and without the Retina display. The FAA process was conducted to provide assurance for pilots and aviation operators that Jeppesen data, when displayed on the 7.9-inch iPad mini screen, is acceptable for use. Jeppesen will share copies of the letter with interested customers using the iPad mini and affected Jeppesen apps, for use in their authorization package.
