Navtech iCharts Passes EASA Evaluation
European Aviation Safety Agency reviews Navtech iCharts for iPad 

July 3, 2013 (TORONTO) - Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, is pleased to announce they have successfully passed a review from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Operations Evaluation Board (OEB). While several Navtech customers have been granted operational approval to use iCharts by their national authorities, this successful review of the app by EASA should simplify future efforts by airlines and their governing authorities.  The latest app version, Navtech iCharts 12.7, is available on the App Store.

The report summarizes "The OEB evaluation found that the Navtech iCharts satisfy the guidelines of JAA TGL 36 and AMC 20-25...The EASA-OEB sees no technical objections to the grant by the National Authorities of an operational approval for the use of Navtech iCharts software application..."

Airlines ready to make the transition to electronic charts will be pleased to realize fuel savings that crew-based mobile platforms enable because of the reduction of paper flight materials during all stages of flight from Navtech iCharts. National Aviation Authorities (NAAs) can now grant operators approval to use Navtech iCharts in a more straightforward manner because of this successful EASA evaluation.

"We are pleased with the result of the EASA review for Navtech and for European airlines," said Mr. Heath Bowden, Director Product Management - Charts & EFB at Navtech. "The knowledgeable team at EASA made the review process very manageable and they shared valuable feedback which made prioritizing product quality and process improvements seamless. Our teams are very excited about the future of electronic charts and we are encouraging and supporting customers and other airlines to execute their digital charts transition plans. Navtech has many activities underway, including development efforts which will further evolve Navtech iCharts and support other platforms in the future."
