ForeFlight Mobile replaces Mobile FliteDeck VFR

Dear Mobile FliteDeck Community,

Earlier this year, Boeing announced the acquisition of ForeFlight, creator of the ForeFlight Mobile integrated flight app. Together, the Jeppesen and ForeFlight teams will continue to build innovative solutions that help increase flying safety, efficiency and enjoyment.

Moving forward, the Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR application will be replaced with ForeFlight Mobile.

ForeFlight Mobile offers a powerful combination of features required for VFR flying in Europe, including integrated flight planning and filing, interactive weather, data-driven aeronautical maps, state-of-the-art hazard awareness features, document management, avionics connectivity, and so much more. Learn more here.

 As we move forward transitioning to the ForeFlight Mobile application, we are actively working on adopting features such as:

  •  GAFOR
  • Airspace alerts
  • Graphical NOTAMS
  • Basemap enhancements

 

Important dates, options moving forward

Mobile FliteDeck VFR will continue to be supported until December 31, 2019.

 If your subscription ends before December 31, you can:

  • Extend your current subscription as is until December 3, 2019

or

  • Activate ForeFlight Mobile by October 31, 2019 and receive a 10% discount on the purchase of any ForeFlight annual subscription plan

If your subscription ends after December 31, you will:

  • Automatically receive ForeFlight Mobile with the Performance Plus plan, as well as Jeppesen VFR charts effective January 1, 2020, until the end-date of your Mobile FliteDeck VFR subscription.

 Take advantage of the FREE 60-day trial

No matter which option applies to you, take advantage of the free 60-day ForeFlight Mobile trial (foreflight.com/vfr60) before October 31, 2019. The trial includes:

  • Full access to ForeFlight Mobile Performance Plus plan with Europe region coverage
  • Jeppesen VFR charts with full European coverage

Even as you transition to ForeFlight Mobile, you will continue to have access to the complete line of Jeppesen charts, navigation databases, pilot training supplies, aviation training courseware and other services and solutions to meet all your flying needs.

Hi together,

is there anybody in this 'MFDVFR to FF' decision making team who has a bit of knowledge of flying VFR in Europe and especially in Germany?
If yes, I would like to post a simple and typical 50nm trip planning done in MFDVFR and would ask him to do the same thing in FF.
Maybe this would be helpful to understand, why a long time MFDVFR user cannot step back into the century where navigation software used scanned maps as background...

Regards,
Thomas

hi everybody,

i'm not that surprised and also not that disappointed - to be honest, if you scroll a bit through the "future enhancements", you'll see that almost every "wish" is fulfilled in foreflight. flightplanning is so much better (you can print your briefing/navlog!), it's quite easy to integrate a stratus/stratux and get traffic on the map including flarm, w/b, checklists, audio alerts (with an "soundcheck button - i'm quite sure i read this somewhere in the forum), you can use two ipads and one iphone and so on ... 

on the other hand, the map - claudio did the comparison!! i just HOPE that "basemap enhancements" means something like, we'll have the MFDVFR charts integrated in foreflight.

with crossed fingers,

marcel

Hi everyone ...

>> We sincerely appreciate your business.

Sorry, at least for what concern myself (as an hobby VFR pilot) .... no you don't.

See my extensive comparison between the maps quality in JVFRMFD and For..., posted in the "future enhancements" forum (what an ironic name now).

Bye bye Jeppesen. 

Regards

Claudio Pedrazzi
