Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR is designed for you—the private pilot who loves VFR flying!
As our premier VFR iPad application, it combines a wide array of carefully processed data and information to dynamically create one of the most crisp, focused VFR pilot experience. Simply put, it reduces efforts around knobs and buttons, leaving more time to enjoy your passion!
LOVE VFR with:
1. EASY AND ACCURATE ROUTE PLANNING
Plan your route the way you want with a textual and a graphical interface that can be used interchangeably. The route planning engine calculates the flight distance and generates a detailed navigation log.
2. EXPEDIENT NOTAMS AND/ OR TFRS
Review and utilize geo-referenced, textual and graphical NOTAMs and/ or TFRs. They are conveniently pre-structured, filtered and displayed in alignment to your planned route.
3. WEATHER WORTH KNOWING
Prepare your flight utilizing a uniquely integrated weather briefing. It supports your routing decisions through color-coded overlays, sorting a wide array of conditions and phenomena for your convenience. As you zoom for route specifics, the display further increases its informational granularity. Wind overlays, text based METARs and TAFs for select airports finally round off this embedded service.
4. SEAMLESS ZOOMING
Enjoy industry-first, seamless zooming capabilities from your taxiway through departure to en-route view and back again – geo-referenced and with brilliant detail for key airfields across your selected coverage.
5. TRACK UP FLYING
Follow your route the way you fly – track up towards your destination – and experience the power of data-driven chart rendering. ‘Track Up’ navigation is now possible from ground to air, with all information turned readable no matter which direction you’re heading.
6. AUTOMATIC ZOOMING
Relieve yourself from the burden of manual chart interaction by engaging the new ‘Auto Zooming’ capability. It keeps your own-ship (aircraft symbol) centered while providing the right scale for your respective state of flight.
7. AIRSPACE WARNINGS
Increase your situational awareness through the use of automatic Airspace Warnings – both visually and audibly. The app provides advance warnings of potential in-flight airspace infringements including general airspace information, distance and time to infringement, as well as associated frequencies. Affected airspace is highlighted with plenty of lead time so you can make a course change, or contact the controlling agency, and supported through crystal clear audio announcements.
8. AUTOMATIC LOGGING (TIME)
Experience the convenience of automated flight time tracking. The AutoLog function takes down your Off-Block/Start, Takeoff, Landing, and On-Block/Stop times for each flight. There is no interaction required in flight, and times can be reviewed at any point in time. Note: this capability does not represent and/or replace a pilot logbook according to legal requirements.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but needs ADSB
I love this app and use it regularly to supplement my small garmin display and glass cockpit. I only wish it would be compatible with the various ADSB devices. I tried Foreflight, but it was pain in the neck for VFR
Stability improved with this version, usable now, but..
The app doesn't keep quitting like the previous version which was a showstopper.
I love the better use of color and graphics compared the other app I have been using, and the auto-zoom showing increasing detail as you get closer right down to taxiways on larger airports is very handy.
My only large complaint now is at most of the zoom settings, the airport names are wildly misplaced so the the airports end up mis-named. When zoomed far away only airport identifiers are shown and they are placed correctly, and when zoomed very close the full names are placed correctly. If I could program at what zoom level the airport identifiers changed to full names it would be fine.
Another smaller complaint is the pattern altitude for some airports is MSL and others are AGL.
Not ready for release
I wish I could write a positive review. I downloaded this app and proceeded to download the data for the US. The data download is not implemented well. First of all you cannot dismiss the app and use another app while the download is occurring, in fact, you cannot even leave the download page to another page in the app. The downloads are large a require a lot of time. However I could live with that if the download would simply finish on its own. But it continually pauses so you have to sit in front of the iPad during the entire process, keeping the iPad alive and keeping the download alive. I finally got the download to complete (3 days on and off) and the status changed to 'extracting'. Then the app crashed. Restarted it three times and watched it crash each time while it was 'extracting'. Without the data you can't do much of anything with the app so it's a FAIL for me.
