Foreflight, a Boeing Company & Flightdocs Create New Integration to Enhance Flight Planning Workflow
BONITA SPRINGS, FLORIDA – OCTOBER 22, 2019 – Flightdocs, the leading provider of flight department management software solutions, announces a new integration with ForeFlight, a Boeing Company. The integration aims to enhance the workflow between schedulers, dispatchers and crew members, creating a seamless transition from flight scheduling to flight planning.
Flightdocs president Greg Heine says, “This is yet another mission accomplished in our effort to deliver cutting-edge technology to our customers. We are excited to expand our partnership with Boeing and work alongside them to provide the next generation of integrated solutions to business aviation. The features, functionality and technology of their ForeFlight solutions are the ideal complement to Flightdocs Enterprise and we look forward to working together in the future.”
“We are thrilled to continue our strong partnership with FlightDocs, with our ForeFlight offerings being a great example of our ability to jointly deliver integrated products, services and solutions to optimize operations and enhance the user experience of our business aviation customers,” said William Ampofo, vice president of Business, General Aviation & OEM Services, Boeing Global Services.
Mutual customers of Flightdocs and ForeFlight offerings will be able to activate the integration and cut out several steps from their scheduling and flight planning process. The integration will allow schedulers to calculate estimated flight times within Flightdocs, generated by the powerful ForeFlight flight planning engine. The flight schedule can then be passed into the ForeFlight system, eliminating the need for pilots to re-enter basic trip data. Pilot submitted data is then pushed back to schedulers inside of Flightdocs, creating a real-time flow of data between the two platforms and within the flight department.
“With this integration, teams can take control of their scheduling and flight planning within one, seamless workflow and platform”, explains Kent Pickard, Chief Technology Officer, Flightdocs. “Conventional workflows that require multiple data entry points, manual copy-and-paste transfer of estimated times and routes to scheduling is a thing of the past. This is innovative technology working for our customers”.
Flightdocs, Boeing and ForeFlight, a Boeing Company will be exhibiting at NBAA-BACE 2019 in Las Vegas.
