After that, the daunting task of paying for and loading scheduled database updates is on you.
Sourcing AND storage With some exception—particularly for tablet apps—Colorado-based Jeppesen remains the primary provider of packaged primary navigation data, or Nav Data (which is airports, runways, frequencies, navaids, controlled airspace and restricted airspace) for nearly all certified avionics.
Jeppesen, with its JAD (Jeppesen Aviation Database) has taken a beating over the years for its pricing structure and what some call a monopoly in the navigation data market.
Note that no airport content restrictions exist in any of the smaller, regionalized databases such as Americas, International, USA, etc. Please note our operating hours are EST 9–5 M-F for installations.**Note From Jeppesen** We regret to inform you the Worldwide Nav Data service you subscribe to will need to be modified to account for a sizing limitation.Internet connection on the computer running ELITE software is required.After purchasing the data update, call/e-mail ELITE Support to schedule an install date and time to access your simulator remotely.
