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

Jeppesen and ForeFlight announced that the companies have entered into in a long-term strategic alliance to combine their 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. 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. The alliance's second area of focus serves users of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro, the leading EFB solution for airlines and large-scale operators. Jeppesen and ForeFlight will work together on a next-generation release of FliteDeck Pro for both iOS and Windows that will deliver a combination of the familiar capabilities in FliteDeck Pro and significant features and functionality from ForeFlight Mobile. The solution will respect the heritage of FliteDeck Pro, while also embracing capabilities from ForeFlight Mobile that many professional pilots already have experience using. Jeppesen and ForeFlight are working together closely with FliteDeck Pro customers in advance of bringing this to market to ensure the training impact is minimized. FliteDeck Pro customers will continue to receive application and content updates from Jeppesen. This alliance builds upon Jeppesen's major new release of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro, which is being deployed worldwide. FliteDeck Pro 3.0 for iOS and 9.0 for Windows includes three major features, SmartNotes which revolutionizes pilot access to charting information relevant to the flight plan, Tailored Enroute Data for customers to add their own company-specific content, and integrated high-resolution Airport Moving Map content for nearly 1,000 airports worldwide.

Gogo and ForeFlight Partner on In-Flight Connectivity

Gogo Inc. and ForeFlight have partnered to make the ForeFlight Mobile application available to customers using Gogo's ATG 1000 in-flight connectivity system beginning in December 2015. Via the Gogo Biz network service, Gogo's ATG 1000 enables voice, high-performance e-mail with attachments, and calling and texting with passengers' own smartphones and mobile numbers. The ATG 1000 also supports select cockpit and operational applications like ForeFlight Mobile. The solution is particularly well-suited for light jets, turboprops and owner-flown aircraft. ForeFlight Mobile users on aircraft equipped with the ATG 1000's internet connectivity can take advantage of the app's full range of real-time information inflight, including up to the minute weather information, real-time Flight Notifications, NOTAMs and TFRs, as well as Cockpit Sharing - a feature pilots can use to wirelessly share route information with one another and with passengers' iPads and iPhones. To take advantage of this new partnership, Gogo's ATG 1000 customers simply use their existing ForeFlight Mobile subscription. New customers can download the ForeFlight Mobile app from the Apple App Store on the ground and purchase a subscription. Ongoing in-flight data usage for the ForeFlight app is covered by the customer's Gogo Biz data plan. No additional Gogo setup fees or subscriptions are required.
