Jeppesen was founded in 1934 by Elrey Borge Jeppesen, a pilot working for Varney Air Lines, who was the first to make aeronautical charts for pilots to navigate in flight. The information that he collected and the charts that he drew were at first only for personal use, but fellow pilots quickly saw the benefits of using these charts and Jeppesen started selling copies of his chart book for $10. Other pilots started to collect data on their own routes and handing this to Jeppesen for him to include in his navigation book. Jeppesen’s aeronautical navigation charts are often called “Jepp charts” or simply “Jepps” by pilots, due to the charts’ popularity.
