    Jepp FD pro database expanded, by a LOT

    The data coverage has been stretched significantly. It didn't even fully cover Mexico before, now we got coverage for most of Brazil and seemingly all of the caribbean. Interestingly there's no data at all for the Embrear factory airport in Sao Jose, and while Manaus has enroute coverage, there's no airport charts for it, killing my theory that it's to facilitate 175 deliveries. Weirdly we have charts for Sao Paulo now. We also have charts for SJU, but I don't recall if we had them before, there's also 8 Cuban airports now with full IAP charts, could've sworn we had way less not long ago. I'm looking through the airport list on the app to see if we now have IAP charts for places we definitely didn't go before.



    If anyone one hasnt updated their ipads recently, maybe take a screenshot and post it here for comparison purposes.

    At any rate, nothing news-worthy, or a sign of things to come?

    We had a couple 175s with worldwide databases. Was funny when an FO tried to convince me we were taking it to Europe.

    It appears we are starting non stop service from XNA to SBRP. ribeirao preto. With an alternate of SBGR. São Paulo. Hence the reason for the expanded coverage area. Only problem is they don't have a waffle House down there so API is having issues finding a suitable hotel.

    That coincides with the 140s new FMS so they can do those routes down there.

    As far as no Waffle House, there has to be at least ONE seedy strip joint in the industrial lot around the airport across the street from the Sleep-Well-Inn
