The Issue

A cyber incident affecting Jeppesen (a Boeing subsidiary) could impact a pilot’s ability to download up-to-date GPS flight planning navigation and instrument approach data.

What You Should Know

FAA Advisory Circular 90-100A—which covers terminal and en route navigation operations—requires pilots carry current data for en route navigation waypoints, and terminal airspace procedures for departure, arrival and alternate airfields. The cyber incident at Jeppesen may impact your ability to download current Jeppesen products, which could put you at risk of flying with non-current data.

What You Should Do

“Pack” for your flights through your normal procedures and check for a successful download of data, particularly Jeppesen charts. Only Jeppesen charts are impacted by the cyber incident; therefore, pilots can cross-check Jeppesen instrument approach plates with FAA charts or verify that the Jeppesen charts on hand have not changed by cross-checking them with FAA charts.
