Jeppesen and Bad Elf Introduce Wireless Flight Data Transfers for Business Aviation Pilots 
  • Jeppesen data distribution technology and Bad Elf Turbine device now available to update data cards for popular business aviation avionics platforms 

GENEVA, May 30, 2018 — Boeing [NYSE: BA], through its subsidiary Jeppesen, today announced that multiple business aviation avionics platforms are now supported by mobile Jeppesen Distribution Manager (JDM) flight data update software and Bad Elf Turbine edition hardware that work together to simplify avionics data updates so customers can update charts and data anywhere. 

The paired hardware and software solution provides a wireless method to update avionics data cards and is now available for popular Garmin G5000, Rockwell Collins Proline 21 & Fusion and Innovative Solutions & Support (IS&S) avionics platforms. Bad Elf is a leading provider of aviation hardware and software solutions. 

“General aviation pilots have begun to use JDM Mobile and the Bad Elf Wombat device together to greatly enhance how they update data cards, prior to taking to the skies,”
said Mike Abbott, director, Jeppesen Data Solutions, Product & Portfolio Management. “We are pleased to now offer this dynamic service to the business aviation market, which eliminates the need to connect in an office environment and allows customers to update their charts and data directly in the cockpit.” 

Jeppesen data subscribers using supported avionics platforms are now able to use JDM Mobile to download data updates on an iPhone or iPad and then wirelessly connect to the Bad Elf Wombat device to transfer flight information directly to avionics data cards. “We continue to deliver on our promise to provide a world-class data update experience, across both business and general aviation, when and where it’s convenient for our customers,” said John Cunningham, CEO, Bad Elf. “Teaming with Jeppesen provides the opportunity for establishing a global reach, while we enhance operational efficiency across our shared customer base.”
