JetBlue implements Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro as EFB

JetBlue Airways has begun to use Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad as its electronic flight bag (EFB) solution, enabling the airline to accomplish its goal of becoming paperless in the flight deck which included receiving clearance for such operations from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).Jeppesen now provides JetBlue with paperless navigation and flight information, including use of digital enroute charting materials. Use of FliteDeck Pro will means JetBlue can remove four tons of paper-based materials from its aircraft, which will allow the airline to save $400,000 in fuel costs annually, through reduced consumption.The elimination of shipping costs related to paper flight materials will also achieve an annual savings of approximately $420,000 for JetBlue. Moreover, FliteDeck Pro helps to reduce pilot workload and preparation time, increase situational awareness in flight, with easy access to operational information, and lower operating costs through reduced fuel use."Teaming with Jeppesen and using FliteDeck Pro on iPad has allowed us to receive this authorisation and achieve fully paperless operations, including use of digital enroute charts," confirmed Chuck Cook, manager, fleet technology, JetBlue. "We look forward to continued operational benefits and improved efficiency through use of digital flight information. It eliminates heavy flight bags on our aircraft and provides a wealth of vital information that is scalable and displayed on-screen per the preferences of our pilots.”
