Data-driven Visual Flight Rules (VFR) charting information will be dynamically rendered on ForeFlight Mobile maps, enhancing situational awareness and flight safety

Boeing, through its subsidiary Jeppesen, today announced with ForeFlight — an innovative provider of mobile and web aviation applications — that interactive Jeppesen European visual flight rules information will be available within the ForeFlight Mobile iOS-based app for general and business aviation flying. 

“After announcing our strategic alliance with ForeFlight last year, embedding Jeppesen European VFR data furthers our shared dedication to providing the right data at the right time for the general and business aviation market, in both IFR and VFR conditions,” said William Ampofo, vice president, Business & General Aviation, Boeing Global Services. “This data integration continues to leverage the strengths of both companies to deliver world class flight data through industry-leading mobile technology on a global scale.”

Jeppesen VFR Manual information will be available this summer for use within ForeFlight Mobile, included with any regional European ForeFlight subscription tier. Jeppesen VFR Manual data provides the most comprehensive European VFR flight information available, covering more than 2200 airports in 29 countries. Jeppesen VFR chart data will be rendered as an overlay on the ForeFlight Mobile map, customized and filtered per pilot preference.  

“Through our strategic partnership with Jeppesen, ForeFlight will offer digital VFR data and IFR chart coverages to supplement Jeppesen’s high quality global aeronautical data,” said Tyson Weihs, co-founder and chief executive officer, ForeFlight. “It enables us to offer a broad suite of navigation and safety features in one application to deliver a uniquely powerful and affordable integrated flight application for VFR and IFR flying.”

Jeppesen and ForeFlight had previously introduced Jeppesen’s global IFR enroute database and NavData, along with Terrain and Obstacle data for use with ForeFlight Mobile. Jeppesen IFR data is available today within ForeFlight Mobile, including European coverages.
