About ForeFlight, LLC

ForeFlight formed in 2007 with one guiding mission: Create software that makes flight planning easier. Since then, ForeFlight has not only revolutionized the pilot’s flight bag but also laid the groundwork to make mobile flight planning apps essential to flight operations. Continued strong growth has positioned ForeFlight as a leader in the aviation industry. We serve the needs of pilots and flight departments all over the world, and across all segments of aviation including personal, business, military, commercial, and education. ForeFlight Mobile, the company’s flagship product, is used by individual pilots and professional flight crews to gather weather and destination information efficiently. It has become the go-to app to route, plan and file, access and manage electronic charts and maps, organize flight publications, and used as a reference for enroute navigation aid. The passion of our pilot co-founders drives our company culture to build elegant, high-performing products, and we practice our core values in our daily work. We take ownership of everything we build, we obsess over creating the best user experience, we pour creativity into every solution, we ship new features regularly, and we do it all with the aviator spirit - a sense of calculated risk-taking and adventure. If you ever meet a ForeFlighter, it will be apparent: we’re passionate about what we do.
