You need a standard sized iPad - the mini and larger sizes arenít allowed. I bought the latest iPad since I wanted it to last for a while.
Good Morning, I'm new to the regionals so was wondering why not opt in for the Cellular option on the iPad, the cellular option will give you built in GPS, otherwise you'll lose the situational awareness feature on Jepps, which is a great added feature.

Some regionals do allow georeferenced taxi diagrams. Mesa used to have it but I guess it was cheaper to drop it.
Let me know which regional allows geo-referencing. The FAA does not allow geo-referencing for regionals. I would like to know which one has gotten around it with the FAA and maybe we can get our geo-referencing back.

Republic for sure and endeavor maybe. It just requires action through the POI for most 121 careers. Of course the EFB has to support the function. Also it has nothing to do with being a regional. The FAA made the change fall 2017.

I think for most folks it is a money issue. Just an observation, Iíve seen like one Capt have it. Like Iíve seen only about 20% of captains tip van drivers. Ok, maybe 40%...

I thought it had to do with GPS function accuracy of the iPad for 121 operations. We had it and the FAA forced us to turn it off.

Of course, Jeppesen supports the function. I know that SkyWest and ExpressJet also do not have it.

I found this information on the new EFB rules and uses in the cockpit.

I think, like ForeFlight, Jepps charged for georeferenced taxi diagrams. It is more likely that we stopped paying for it, not that the FAA took it away. Just my guess.

SkyWest doesnít have it either and they have paid for 27.1 FMS Ejet load and pay for all the ACARS features (unlike Mesa). I will ask the next FAA jumpseater I have about it.
