How easy is it to get airports added to the Jepp database?  I've notice that there are a lot of airports in my local area that are not in the database.  I like having the MAP function up when flying and having the Nrst option is useful but so many private fields are missing.   

Will Jepp do a multi-add if you email them?

Thanks.

They're pretty responsive.  I've tried in the past to just get all private airports added, but they were unwilling to do that.  So I end up peppering them with requests as they come up.  If you want to try it yourself, feel free to write navdatatechsupport@jeppesen.com.  If you have difficulty, send the list to me and I'll make a run at it.

Thank you! 

I just put in a request.  I'll see what happens.  It doesn't seem unreasonable especially considering that Foreflight has them plus much more and it is less than the cost of my Jeppesen subscription.  Ironic, is it not they not both owned by Boeing and therefore you'd think there was some consistency across such!

I agree ;-)

I was on a ForeFlight webinar recently where someone asked when more integration could be expected with Jepp avionics data since ForeFlight was now owned by Jeppesen. The ForeFlight rep sort of chuckled and only replied that they are owned by Boeing or something along that line. ;-)
