In July 2017, Jeppesen announced its strategic alliance with ForeFlight, the general aviation industry’s leading flight deck solution. It is a pairing of the world’s best aeronautical data from Jeppesen and ForeFlight’s unparalleled design and user experience.
On March 6, 2019, Jeppesen announced that its owner, Boeing, had taken this alliance to the next level and acquired ForeFlight.
What does this mean for customers? Short-term, nothing is changing—Foreflight is still providing a blend of the best features and functionalities of each of its applications. Looking forward, Boeing says customers can expect faster delivery of the innovation they have come to expect from ForeFlight and Jeppesen, and a greater integration of services for an even more intuitive experience.
