PR Log - Jan 11, 2013 - BRISBANE, Queensland -- In Australia pilots have a choice of IFR documents, either they use the Australian Regulator's Publications Unit offering or Jeppesen Airway Manual which cost about the same on an annual subscription service.
The reason the Jeppesen manuals are becoming so popular is the larger flying schools are preparing student pilots for life in the major airlines where Jeppesen is the standard working IFR document for their pilots. According to The Aviator Store's CEO Ian Pennycuick, "Getting familar early with Jeppesen Documents is a real time saver later when the pressure of airline procedural training starts. "
"As a pilot progresses to International Operations the Jeppesen System is the only real choice" he said.
Having used both types personally Mr Pennycuick said " The Jeppesen Chart Package is organized on how you brief and fly an IFR procedure, the layout keeps the pilots ahead of the aircraft and focused on flying the proceedure.The last thing you want is heads down looking for the information."
The older Airservices Australia manuals filled a gap in the industry when the Jeppesen was not a big player in our market he said.
lets face it, Jeppesen are the acknowledged experts in collecting and charting complex international aeronautical data into standard, easy to use, manuals.
The sale and distribution of Jeppesen Airway Manuals is a big part of their business, In fact, The Aviator Store is the largest reseller of Jeppesen products in Australia. " A fact my staff are very proud of" he said.
In aviation circles the old adage of aviate, navigate, communicate is still taught to new comers entering the flying game and for good reason. Its about safety.
The Aviator Store In Australia is the premier retailer of Jeppesen Products and pilot supplies since 1996, They have extensive experience in Airways Manual delivery in Australia and expert knowledge of their use and coverage.
