Boeing announced today the signing of a new agreement with PlaneSense, Inc., a leading fractional aircraft ownership program with more than 50 aircraft in its fleet. Under the new agreement, PlaneSense will implement Boeing’s ForeFlight integrated flight planning and mobile EFB solutions across its entire operation.
In addition to its current use of Boeing’s Jeppesen charting and NavData solutions, PlaneSense will adopt ForeFlight’s integrated product suite to replace their existing flight planning and inflight solutions. This includes ForeFlight Dispatch for flight planners, ForeFlight Mobile EFB with integrated Jeppesen charts for navigation, as well as ForeFlight Runway Analysis for takeoff and landing performance calculations.
“Implementing advanced systems that strengthen operations is an important strategy in our commitment to providing exceptional service to our fractional clients,” said George Antoniadis, President and CEO, PlaneSense, Inc. “ForeFlight has been a valuable tool in our arsenal for the last several years and has been revolutionary in maximizing safety, efficiency, and utility across our fleet. It provides our pilots and the Flight Operations team with precise analysis of the dynamic flight environment. We look forward to continuing working together to add additional features that will further streamline our operations.”
Because ForeFlight’s ecosystem of digital solutions is purpose-built for business aviation, PlaneSense’s leveraging of the suite will support the seamless integration of digital tools across its operations. ForeFlight Dispatch features collaborative flight planning capabilities that go beyond the basics of planning, filing, and monitoring flights, such as producing optimized and “cleared-as-filed” routes with speed and flexibility. Its set of customization and automation capabilities allow flight departments to easily adapt Dispatch to unique operational needs while saving flight planners time and effort.
“We have a longstanding relationship with PlaneSense, and we’re thrilled that they have expanded their suite of Boeing’s digital solutions to include ForeFlight Dispatch, ForeFlight Mobile EFB and ForeFlight Runway Analysis,” said Tim Schuetze, ForeFlight CEO. “Their involvement as a development partner in the ongoing evolution and advancement of these products has been instrumental in offering the market a comprehensive, integrated solution that is tailor-made for Business Aviation.”
