Will Supply Software For EFBs
French jetmaker Dassault Falcon and Jeppesen signed an agreement
Tuesday afternoon at NBAA 2008, that calls for Jeppesen to develop
new performance software and services to be incorporated into
Electronic Flight Bags in the Falcon family of business jets.
The training and software provider says the new programming will
simplify takeoff and landing calculations during preflight
preparations by the flight crew. The software is programmed to run
on any PC or EFB that runs Windows.
Dassault will be responsible for updated performance
information, as well as computation modules and performance data.
Jeppesen will provide and update airport information, including
runway parameters and obstacles data.
"This Dassault/Jeppesen partnership will give Falcon customers
the benefit of precise performance information for each takeoff and
landing and will significantly decrease crew workload during
mission preparation," said Dassault's Jean-Paul Pellisier.
"Jeppesen is pleased to provide this important performance
service to both new and existing Falcon Jet customers," added Greg
Bowlin, senior vice-president for Business and General Aviation at
Jeppesen. "The EFB is a proven asset for operators and provides
convenient access to important information for planning and
operational purposes such as aircraft performance using Jeppesen's
proven airport and obstacle data."
The new tools and services are scheduled to be available as an
option to new and existing Falcon customers by the end of 2008.
