The company was established in 1934, by Elrey Borge Jeppesen, a pilot employed by Varney airlines , who was the first to ever produce aeronautical charts for pilots to browse in flight. The data he accumulated and the graphs that he attracted were at first only for personal use, however fellow pilots immediately saw the benefits of working with these charts and Jeppesen started selling copies of his own graph novel for about $10. Other pilots began to get data on their paths and handing this to Jeppesen for him to add in his navigation novel. Jeppesen's wife, former airport Nadine Jeppesen, was also essential to the provider's early years.
United Airlines the airline for which Jeppesen functioned from the late 1930s later Varney Airlines had merged with several different organizations to form United Airlines, was one of the first airlines to start using Jeppesen's charts. After a time the graph business started consuming so much of Jeppesen's time he quit his job as a Captain and focused his energy on making charts.
