8 Reasons You Should Use The 'Airport Moving Map' During Your Next Taxi

If you haven't used the Jeppesen Airport Moving Map (AMM) charts, you'll want to after reading this. It has serious power, making complex taxi instructions around airports much more simple and safe.

Click here to learn about Jeppesen Airport Moving Maps on FliteDeck Pro.

1) Taxiway And Runway Closures

AMM Charts automatically sync with NOTAMs to shade closed taxiways and runways in red, making it much easier to visualize your route.

2) Dynamic Rendering

Runways, taxiways, stop bars and other airport structures are rendered dynamically as you zoom in and out of the chart. No more cluttered signage and impossible small letters from static charts.

3) Detailed Hot Spots And Holding Positions

You can zoom in and out on hot spots and click them to see details. Holding positions are depicted clearly as well.

4) Ownship

Just like your enroute charts, if ownship and GPS are available on your EFB, you can see your position in real-time as you taxi around the airport.

5) Highlights And Notations

You can use the highlighter on the AMM taxi chart to highlight your taxi route and add notes. When I'm told to hold short of a runway, I usually draw a slash across the taxiway/runway intersection.

6) Gate Positions

If you're flying for an airline, you can now see gate positions right on the chart.

7) Toggle Between North-Up Or Track-Up

If you want to taxi just like you'd follow the GPS in your car, you can toggle track-up. Otherwise, use the standard north-up mode.

8) Detailed Runway Information

Tap on a runway to get all the information you need, like available distances for takeoff and landing, a visual depiction of approach lighting, and more.

While AMM charts are available at many busy airports (and even some small ones), you won't find them everywhere you fly. Where would you like to see an AMM chart published? Tell us in the comments below!
