ForeFlight acquired by Boeing

Navigation app company ForeFlight is now part of Boeing, it was announced yesterday.

Boeing completed the acquisition of ForeFlight, after two years of working together using Jeppesen’s aeronautical data and charts through ForeFlight’s mobile platforms. Jeppesen is already a Boeing subsidiary.

“We are excited to build on ForeFlight’s tremendous success in personal, business and defense aviation so we can provide next-generation, integrated tools to our aviation customers today,” said Ken Sain, Boeing Vice President of Digital Solutions and Analytics.

“This acquisition also expands Boeing’s rapidly growing, unparalleled digital services portfolio which will enable us to compete and win in the $2.8 trillion, 10-year services market.”

Tyson Weihs, co-founder and CEO of ForeFlight, said, “We are inspired by the future built at Boeing and what our teams will be able to create by coming together.”

Terms of the approved deal are not being disclosed.

ForeFlight recently launched Airport 3D View, an interactive view to help pilots become familiar with an airport.
