New Enroute WAYPOINTS

There have been many questions why JeppFD Pro
shows a compulsory reporting point, that is not
displayed on the paper enroute chart.

Remember electronic charts are updated more
frequently, so will be more current.

Paper enroute charts are updated by Change Notices as well.
Remember those?

They are located in front of your Jepp Book 1.

ZZTOP and SAUCR are both new CRPs

ZZTOP is not show at all on the JEPP paper chart,
but it is on JeppFD Pro as a CRP.   It is displayed on the
Gov't issed chart as non-compulsory (See Below)

SAUCER is just 19 miles south of PAEPR,
both are CRPs.

A good practice is to ask ATC if they really need
a report at SAUCR if you are southbound.
Just to cover yourself.
They will probably tell you, no.

Bottom line ... pay a little extra attention to this stuff
while we are in this charting transition.

Primary vs. Supplementary Weather Resources
When using BlueBrief.com, it is important to understand the difference between Primary and Supplementary weather data.
This site is built with a combination of both resources.

Primary Weather is FAA Approved for use in making weather related decisions, and fuel requirements.  This can be found in your Dispatch Release, WSI iPad App, or US / Foreign Government Issued Data if it is unaltered.  Examples include National Weather Service, NOAA, and direct FAA Web Sites such as the METAR - TAF Button above.  Data can be repackaged but not altered.  Internet Weather / Data services are approved thru a process called
(QICP), Qualified Internet Communications Provider

Supplementary Weather is everything else.  There are many good weather resources available via the internet and for your mobile devices.  The FAA and the JB FOM understands this and allows for the use of these products, for increased awareness. If you notice a change via one of these resources that will affect your flight planning, it must be verified with a Primary Source. 

For a further explanation off all this, please refer to FOM 2.5.1 (Weather Analysis)
