Jeppesen announced three new products at a press conference here Tuesday–a terrain database, a training system and an onsite trip planning service.
Truman Arnold Companies announced the addition of Knoxville to its TAC Air FBO network. The Texarkana, Texas-based chain now has 11 FBOs across the U.S. Located on the McGhee Tyson Airfield for more than three decades, the new facility has three large hangars, three rows of T hangars, and plane ports.
Jeppesen has assembled a team of engineers to look into complaints by users that the company’s latest electronic charting software, JeppView FlightDeck 3.0, can cause electronic flight bag (EFB) computers to crash without warning.
Change is coming to the FBO scene at California’s busy Van Nuys Airport, with one pending acquisition and a possible new facility. Local aircraft management company Maguire Aviation is planning to buy the elegant Spanish-hacienda-style Petersen Aviation FBO, pending Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) approval.
This year marks the 10th since Jeppesen started supplying aircraft operators with electronic navigation charts. For many, digital charts and maps have matured slowly from a promising yet unproven technology to an everyday necessity.
