A checklist comes out once a year for the Jepps. It lets you check the entire thing at once. That is if you like punishment! It comes automatically in the updates.

You have discovered one of the weaknesses of the "traditional" style Jepps. Jeppesen makes the assumption you are keeping them current with updates and actually doing the yearly checklist. If you did, then they are. We all know with multiple pilots usually doing jepps that they get mucked up a bit over time.

Therefore, do yourself a favor and switch to Q Service or Jeppview or better yet -- Go Paperless.

you could always check your revision log, and compare that with the calendar of scheduled updates, that will let you know if the updates are filed correctly

I forgot to mention. Doing the yearly checklist is about as much fun as driving hot daggers into your eyes, or waking up with you head sewn to the carpet. But after the multi-day ordeal is done you will finally know that the 1985 JFK airport diagram should have been updated by now. Meaning the person who was "supposed" to do the jepps that time probably pitched them in the circular file and signed the log off. I did one not too long ago so I wanted to convey how much I liked it.

Too bad Jepp doesn't have an onliine listing of current chart dates, like the annual checklist, only up-to-date each month. Hmmmm- I may e- customer service with a suggestion. (They'd probably charge for a peek, though!)

My airline specific Jepps now have a "list of effective pages." Don't know if all versions now have this. If they do, you could check there.

unfortunately that won't help you determine if a plate in the book is lost or outdated. it will only address affected pages of that particular revision.:)

The subscription we use includes a Change Transmittal Page with each revision (to specify which pages are added, which are replaced, and which are deleted) and a List of Effective Pages, that is updated with each change. To determine the currency of any page in the subscription, all one has to do is refer to the List of Effective Pages.


If you don't have access to such a List of Effective Pages, why don't you just call Jeppessen?

what is the q service?

[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]Jeppesen Q-Service[/font]







[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]"Jeppesen Q Service offers a quick, convenient way to update your Airway Manual Service. Every other week you automatically receive a packet containing new and revised Terminal charts (Approach, DP, STAR and Airport charts).[/font]
[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]Q Service ends manual filing of approach charts. You simply place the package of Terminal charts behind a numbered Q Service tab in your binder. The easy-to-use special Update Index makes it easy to see if the charts you need have been revised. After eight updates, you receive a complete set of Terminal Charts (replacement contents) and state tabs that incorporate all the new and revised charts. Then the Update Cycle begins again. Q Service automatically ensures that you always have the most current, most accurate information you need...when you need it. "[/font]
