About Us One Boeing Quality Our Future Our Present Our Past For more than 80 years, Jeppesen and aviation have evolved together Since 1934, when Captain E.B. Jeppesen began selling the world’s first aviation navigation charts, the company that bears his name has evolved alongside — not in response to — aviation. We aren’t providers. We’re partners. We’re co-pilots. And just as it was with Captain Jeppesen, the spirit of pilot helping pilot guides everything we do. A proud member of the Boeing family since 2000 Jeppesen is proud to be part of the One Boeing community, focused on the needs of global defense, space and aviation customers from all markets, regardless of their equipment’s original manufacturer.

Our past: Pioneers in the history of aviation Our story started with Captain Jeppesen and his little black book. We began when aviation itself was very young, literally exploring uncharted territory and creating the foundation for safe, efficient predictable air travel as we know it. We never waited for “someone else” to do it and never will. Aviation is by definition a disruptive technology — something that, once introduced, makes everything before it outdated. We’ve got a proud history of being disruptive in the best possible way. 1930 - 1949 1950 - 1969 1970 - 1989 1990 - 2009 2010 - Today 1934 Captain E.B. Jeppesen begins selling copies of his “little black book,” the world’s first reliable aviation charts, from his home in Salt Lake City, Utah. The company would move to Denver in 1941. 1947 Jeppesen collaborates with the US Civil Aviation Authority, which would later become the FAA, to develop standard instrument approach procedures and establish the National Flight Data Center. 1957 To support a contract with the U.S. Army, Jeppesen expands to Frankfurt, Germany. This new office paved the way to serve European and other markets. 1973 The first commercial flight is flown with Jeppesen NavData®, electronic flight data. 1974 Sanderson Films, a leading provider of pilot training courseware and material is merged into Jeppesen 1989 Jeppesen continues to expand its services, purchasing Lockheed DataPlan, a flight planning, international trip planning and weather services company. 1996 Jeppesen, introduces JeppView, a complete library of terminal aeronautical charts on CD-ROM; that same year, Jeppesen acquired MentorPlus, a maker of PC-based marine and aviation applications. 1998 Jeppesen introduces internet-based delivery of NavData updates. 1999 Jeppesen expands into airspace and procedure design through the acquisition of Airspace Safety Analysis Corporation, the premier provider of airspace utilization and FAA compliance analysis services for the telecommunications and tower management industry. 2000 Jeppesen is acquired by The Boeing Company – although Jeppesen and Boeing have a much longer history. Early in Captain Jepp’s career, he was asked to pilot two VIPs from Rock Springs, Wyoming to Salt Lake City. As the captain recounted, “I went out there and flew to Rock Springs and picked them up in the 40B. It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. The Rock Springs airport was down in a ravine just south of the city — a pretty tight squeeze —– with mountains all around. When you were going to take off at night, the field manager would drive his car down to the very end of the runway and we’d follow him with the airplane to get a good long run so we could make a quick turn before we got to the mountains. Everything went great that night and, as it turned out, my passengers that night were Mr. and Mrs. Bill Boeing!” 2002 Jeppesen introduces its electronic flight bag and internet-based chart delivery — one more step toward a paperless cockpit. 2006 Jeppesen acquires Carmen Systems, a leading provider of crew scheduling and disruption-management software, further expanding our offerings in crew management, having acquired SBS, a New York City-based provider of crew-scheduling services, in 2004. 2013 Jeppesen’s Mobile FliteDeck is introduced to the general aviation market. 2014 Jeppesen expands into fuel management with the acquisition of ETS Aviation and into document management with the acquisition of AerData. 2017 Jeppesen partners with ForeFlight Mobile to integrate Jeppesen charts into the popular EFB solution. Captain Jeppesen’s charts went from being hand-drawn and copied to being updated in real time – literally at pilots’ fingertips. During that same year, thanks to team efforts, the FAA approved the use of own-ship position applications in flight. We’re sure he would be as proud as we are. 2019 Following a successful two-year partnership, Boeing aqcuires ForeFlight to further enhance its portfolio of digital services. This acquisition aligns with Boeing’s growth strategy of complementing organic investments with targeted, strategic investments that position the company for long-term growth.
