Jeppesen and ForeFlight Form Alliance to Deliver Industry Leading Apps and Flight Information to Pilots Worldwide

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company and a leader in aviation navigation and operational efficiency solutions, and ForeFlight, the innovative provider of mobile and web aviation applications, today announced that the companies have entered into in a long-term strategic alliance to combine their industry-leading capabilities and worldwide content. Together, Jeppesen and ForeFlight will build on their common heritage of delivering superior data and software to pilots and flight operations around the globe.

“We are thrilled to bring together Jeppesen’s world-class aeronautical data with the unmatched advanced technology of ForeFlight,” said Ken Sain, chief operating officer, Jeppesen. “This will create a new benchmark for delivering navigation, flight information and operational solutions with greater regularity and speed for every aviation segment, from recreational pilots to the world’s largest airlines.”

“This strategic alliance will enable ForeFlight and Jeppesen together to bring advances in capability to customers globally that neither company could accomplish on its own,” said Tyson Weihs, co-founder and chief executive officer, ForeFlight. “Both companies share common values and purpose – delivering next generation power and productivity to pilots with superior customer service.”

“We’re excited to bring Jeppesen charts and data to ForeFlight Mobile customers. The combination makes ForeFlight Mobile the premier all-in-one mobile solution for planning, briefing, filing, flying, and logging flights across personal and business aviation. Over the years, many customers have requested Jeppesen charts and data in ForeFlight Mobile, and we’re so pleased that we can now meet that need,” said Weihs.

The alliance focuses initially in two areas. First, beginning this summer, all ForeFlight subscribers will see Jeppesen global navigational, terrain and obstacle data in ForeFlight Mobile. ForeFlight subscribers on individual plans will be able to link their Jeppesen license in ForeFlight Mobile and purchase standard worldwide Jeppesen charts for use inside the app through a simple e-commerce experience on foreflight.com. General aviation pilots will be able to choose between Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck and ForeFlight Mobile as their preferred cockpit solution.
