GENEVA, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EUROPEAN BUSINESS AVIATION CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION -- Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Digital Aviation, together with Honeywell, today introduce the aviation industry's first integrated navigation data service (INDS) iPad solution. First available for operators of Pilatus PC-12 NG aircraft, the iPad app manages cloud-based, wireless data updates for installed Honeywell Primus Apex Integrated Flight Deck avionics that are paired with the Aspen Avionics CG-100 Connected Panel. The new INDS iPad app is expected to be available this summer.
The iPad-based INDS data manager simplifies the update process for Pilatus PC-12 NG pilots and flight departments by providing a remote connection to load critical Jeppesen and Honeywell flight data to onboard Honeywell avionics. The INDS data manager delivers wireless download and upload of navigation databases, easy access to subscription service information, advanced filtering and auto-login functionality.
"Jeppesen and Honeywell have teamed up to simplify the data loading experience and increase efficiency for PC-12 NG operators using installed avionics systems," said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management. "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. Now the update process is as advanced as the Primus Apex system it supports."
The INDS data manager iPad app was developed using the latest user interface design principles to provide an intuitive layout and optimized workflow experience. Overall, Honeywell and Jeppesen provide a suite of worldwide navigation information for Honeywell's Primus Epic INAV and Apex avionics systems.
"Honeywell has extensive experience developing some of the industry's most advanced flight decks for business aircraft," said Victor Valente, vice president Business & General Aviation EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace. "With the recent proliferation of tablets, our customers are increasingly using portable devices for a range of flight planning tasks. We are using these changing patterns to bring affordable wireless capabilities and iPad solutions to market that put the information they need most literally at their fingertips."
