FAQs for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck Customers

Transition to ForeFlight Mobile

JeppFD (Mobile FliteDeck IFR) will remain supported and available for download on the Apple App Store for all regions until further notice. Jeppesen is still planning to discontinue JeppFD in 2022 and we encourage all remaining JeppFD customers to start a free trial of ForeFlight Mobile with included worldwide Jeppesen chart coverages.

We are hard at work ensuring Jeppesen customers have a smooth transition for both domestic and international operations. You will be given plenty of advance notice prior to the removal of JeppFD from the App Store.

Product Description
JeppView JeppView is Jeppesen’s original digital chart service. It is PC-based software that allows users to view/print charts on the ground. It also has limited route planning functionality and the ability to create “trip kits” for a particular route. At this time, JeppView is still supported.
JeppView MFD (Multi-Function Display) JeppView MFD is sometimes used to describe a Jeppesen digital chart service that integrates with the front panel multi-function display (MFD). We have moved away from the “JeppView MFD” name in favor of descriptive naming: “Jeppesen digital chart services for avionics.” These services are sold individually, or as part of bundled data/chart packages for many Garmin and Avidyne systems. Additionally, the site keys from this chart service can also be used for ForeFlight Mobile, providing access to Jeppesen digital charts through the aircraft MFD, and a mobile device.
Mobile FliteDeck (JeppFD) Jeppesen’s mobile chart viewing app for iPads. The app is identified for discontinuation—the replacement app is ForeFlight Mobile, which can seamlessly integrate Jeppesen digital chart services. Subscriptions to Jeppesen digital charts will not change and there will be no disruption to a customer’s service.
