Jeppesen Flight Information Services Global cyber security incident

Update 07 Nov 2022

Indications are that a global FD Pro issue affecting all operators that use Jepp FD PRO means that Jepp FD PRO terminal and enroute data on iPads cannot be updated since 02 Nov. The AIRAC cycle changeover date was 03 Nov. Users who updated their devices before 02 Nov should be unaffected and can continue to use current FD PRO data.

Users who have not updated prior to 02 Nov will not be able to load the 03 Nov data in FD PRO. Data will show as not current, however previous cycle data will still be available. It appears that only the Jepp FD Pro data on iPads is affected. Users should continue to check all data to confirm accuracy.

Jeppesen are actively working the issue and further information can be found on their website(external link).
