M2 EQUITYBITES-October 24, 2016-Jeppesen introduces improved IFR charts to increase situational awareness

Jeppesen has enhanced its SID (standard instrument departure) and STAR (standard terminal arrival route) charts to increase situational awareness and reduce head-down time while referencing chart information, the company said.

The company said it teamed with pilots and experts in human factors to create a new industry standard with Jeppesen SID/STAR chart design and interaction. The changes in the Jeppesen charts are designed to make them easier to read, reducing the likelihood of violating altitude and speed restrictions.

New worldwide IFR (instrument flight rules) charts will be introduced over time, starting this December for airports in Europe and the US. The chart enhancements are designed to help pilots increase safety in flight and raise awareness of both physical obstacles and dangers and the regulatory environment for each procedure.

Jeppesen delivers transformative information and optimization solutions to improve the efficiency of air operations around the globe. Jeppesen is a Boeing subsidiary and part of the digital aviation business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.
