Announcing SimCharts 4.0


Recommended Posts



ENGLEWOOD, COLO., November 1, 2006 - Jeppesen has recently launched the latest offering in its successful, long-running SIMCharts product line. Designed exclusively for flight simulation enthusiasts, virtual airline operators, and those pilots who use PC simulators to develop or hone their skills, SIMCharts v4.0 plugs and plays with Microsoft Flight Simulator X and contains a worldwide terminal chart set that matches the Jeppesen NavData contained in Flight Simulator X. SIMCharts takes realism to the next level by allowing users to sort, view and print real Jeppesen arrival, departure, approach and airport charts that thousands of pilots and airlines around the world use every day.


New with SIMCharts v4.0 is a completely digital delivery interface that utilizes the Internet and a small client that resides on the customer's computer--no more CDs to keep track of or physical product to ship. Customers may place orders by calling Jeppesen at 1-800-621-5377, or +49 6102 5070 in the Eastern Hemisphere. SIMCharts v4.0 is offered at one convenient price of 59.95 USD per year for a worldwide coverage. This includes unlimited access for one full year to over 25,000 real Jeppesen terminal charts.


Just as with previous versions of SIMCharts, customers can print charts to have on hand for quick and easy access. Charts can also be called up during a Flight Simulator X session and displayed in a separate window.


An aircraft position spotter provides real time feedback for added situational awareness and also makes for a great instrument flight training or proficiency tool. "Everyone from seasoned instrument pilots, to serious gamers, to student pilots find value in the added realism that SIMCharts brings to Flight Simulator X," said Dan McGaw, Jeppesen business programs manager, Business and General Aviation. "This latest release of SIMCharts offers all the features and benefits our customers have come to expect, but now with the added convenience of a web-based global data set that contains over 25,000 charts. Now our customers can literally fly just about anywhere in the Flight Simulator X virtual world and be covered with charts for a nominal annual fee."


SIMCharts v4.0 provides improved search and filtering capability, so customers can quickly find charts in the worldwide database, sort them, and print, if so desired. Enroute charts are rendered within Flight Simulator X, and, therefore, are no longer offered in the SIMCharts lineup. SIMCharts do not contain current data and are not for actual navigation use.


For more than 70 years Jeppesen has made it possible for pilots and their passengers to safely and efficiently reach their destinations. Today this pioneering spirit continues as Jeppesen delivers essential information and optimization tools to improve the efficiency of air, sea and rail operations around the globe. Jeppesen is a subsidiary of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, a unit of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
