Captain Elrey Borge “Jepp” Jeppesen

The following is a series of videos I ran across on you tube I hope you enjoy them. I am a subscriber of the Jeppesen airway manual service and find the product to be excellent. As an added unexpected benefit I have found the process of updating the charts to be a great armchair flying activity. I mentally fly the updated approaches while inserting them into the binders. Sure it gets a little old sometimes, but the quality of the charts and thoughtfulness that goes into the product more than makes up for the added time spent updating the charts. I highly recommend checking them out.

Captain Elrey Borge “JEPP” Jeppesen, Jan. 28, 1907 – November 26, 1996. The following video was shown at the memorial service shortly after his death in November of 1996. Jepp received numerous plaques and awards over the years, but he was most proud of the letters he received from pilots who said, “Jepp, you saved my life, made my flying safer and easier, and given me great confidence on those dark, stormy nights.”

Jepp began flying as a barnstormer with Tex Rankin’s Flying Circus. Flew for Fairchild Aerial Survey, photographing the Mississippi Delta area around New Orleans. Read the rest of this entry »

The original plan was to attend the event with some of my fellow flying club members but due to scheduling conflicts I went solo. Bad weather was forecast in the Northeast so I made the call early on to drive. The weather turned out to be quite bad so there were no regrets about scrubbing the flight.
