About JeppView FliteDeck
JeppView FliteDeck is designed for use in an aircraft while the aircraft is flying.
Proper use of FliteDeck can enhance positional awareness, assist with in-flight
replanning, and provide valuable information for normal and emergency operations.
Because FliteDeck is used during flight, the cockpit interface is simple and easy to
use:

FliteDeck eliminates the normal menu you would find in most Windows
programs. Tests have shown these types of menus are difficult to use in the
cockpit during flight.

FliteDeck contains no pop-up windows to block your view of essential
information on the screen.

You cannot resize the FliteDeck window during use. FliteDeck uses a fixed
amount of space on the screen.

You configure FliteDeck with a separate setup program, which eliminates
extra distracting buttons and menus in the program itself.

FliteDeck includes a GPS simulator trainer so you can learn the program
before trying to fly with it.

FliteDeck displays current weather by using your XM WxWorx Weather
Satellite™ service to enhance situational awareness.

Expanding your Regional Coverage Area
Contact a Jeppesen Customer Service Representative to request a new coverage or
multiple coverages. After you have contacted Jeppesen, you can add the new
coverage area to your subscription by using the electronic update feature or the
Electronic Chart Data (ECD) Disc 1 and ECD Disc 2.

Adding Coverages Electronically
Please wait at least 30 minutes from the time you contacted a Jeppesen Customer
Service Representative before initiating an electronic download of new regions. This
gives the Customer Service system time to refresh your information in the Update
Server.
To add the new coverage area electronically:
1. Close JeppView FliteDeck (if it is open), and open the FliteDeck Setup
Program by clicking Start > Programs > Jeppesen > JeppView
FliteDeck3 > FliteDeck3 Setup.
2. On the Configuration tab, click Get Update.
3. FliteDeck logs in to the Update Server, finds your new information, and adds
the new coverage areas to your permanent subscription.

Adding Coverages from the Electronic Chart Data CD
You can add coverage areas to your subscription from the Electronic Chart Data
(ECD) Discs. Contact Jeppesen to request the new coverage or coverages. You will
receive a unique coverage code for each new region you are adding. The coverage
code is only applicable to the ECD Disc 1 you have available (preferably the most
recent). When you call Customer Service, tell the representative which terminal chart
revision cycle you are using. The cycle number is recorded on the Electronic Chart
Data CD label in this format: 08-2005, representing the revision number (08), and
the year (2005). Regional codes change every two weeks, so a code for the wrong
cycle does not work.
To add new coverages from the ECDs:
1. Insert the current ECD Disc 1 before it expires.

Deactivating JeppView and FliteDeck
Because you may need to use FliteDeck on a notebook computer in addition to your
desktop computer, your license agreement permits this, as long as you are the only
person using the program(s). If more than one person needs to use the software, or
if you otherwise need additional site keys, you can purchase them by calling
Jeppesen Customer Service.
Notwithstanding the notebook computer exception to the single-computer license, if
you need to move FliteDeck or the NavSuite products from one computer to another,
you must first deactivate the program on the computer from which you are removing
it; otherwise you may not use it on the new computer.
After you have activated FliteDeck or the NavSuite Products on the maximum
number of computers, you can deactivate one of them and move it to a new
computer by following one of the methods below:

Uninstall the program, and choose Yes when the deactivation wizard asks if
you would like to deactivate JeppView or NavSuite. See Removing JeppView
and FliteDeck.

Locate and run the deactivate.exe program in the folder containing your
FliteDeck files. If you installed FliteDeck within the default folders, it can be
found in one of the following locations:

NOTE

o

C:\Program Files\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3 (Windows 2000, XP and
Vista)

o

C:\Jeppesen\FliteDeck3 (Windows 2000 and XP)

If you are using FliteDeck within the NavSuite, deactivating FliteDeck
also deactivates the other NavSuite products on the computer.

If the deactivation wizard presents a list of programs to deactivate, select FliteDeck
or NavSuite and follow the on-screen instructions:
1. Read the warning to ensure you really want to deactivate FliteDeck or
NavSuite. Select the check box and click Next.

44

Installation and Activation
2. Select how you want to deactivate FliteDeck or NavSuite (we strongly
recommend selecting the Automated method if you have an Internet
connection), and click Next. If you select Automated, FliteDeck deactivates
and a dialog box containing the deactivation information appears.
3. After your deactivation information has been displayed, you can install
FliteDeck or NavSuite on the new hardware.
Although it no longer runs, FliteDeck or the NavSuite products are not uninstalled
from the old computer. You can now install the software on another computer and
follow the Activation Wizard. To reactivate the programs from a computer that
previously ran them, open the program and the Activation Wizard runs again. If you
do not plan to reactivate, you can uninstall the programs to save disk space.
Be sure to keep a copy of your serial number and site keys for each computer in case
your hard drive fails or your computer fails and you have to replace it.

NOTE

If you try to reactivate FliteDeck or NavSuite on this machine after
activating them on another computer, or activate the products on a
fifth machine without deactivating one site key, you will receive a
message from the server that your site key limit has been exceeded.
To purchase and activate additional installation of FliteDeck or
NavSuite, please contact Jeppesen's Customer Service.

If FliteDeck is inaccessible, such as from a hard disk crash, contact a Technical
Support Representative by phone or email for assistance.

Backup and Recovery

The next time you open FliteDeck. it automatically defaults to the last view setting used for the displayed chart and opens all new charts in that manner. the Clipboard charts use the current setting at the time they are added. the revision date for each chart displays in the terminal chart list. When you receive a CD in the mail or download an update from the Internet. There are a few exceptions where Jeppesen issues a chart before the effective date. The one exception to this behavior is if charts are added to the Clipboard without first being viewed. all terminal charts display in single view with the full chart displayed. When you change certain attributes to a displayed chart. the plan view of the chart displays in the upper component and the chart header displays in the lower component.

There is no motion feedback. Touchscreens 270 . including a finger. When adding in the motion of the plane (and turbulence). This causes the pen to act irrationally because FliteDeck ignores most right-click actions. They can work well if located on yoke and operated with the thumb. Many people hold the pen in such a way that the button is pressed all or part of the time. Pens (Passive or Active) The passive pen can sense and respond to pressure from any object. unintentional right-clicks can occur.
