Jeppesen FliteStar Customers:
Guide to ForeFlight
Transition to ForeFlight Mobile
Since the Boeing acquisition of ForeFlight, the Jeppesen and ForeFlight teams have worked together to establish ForeFlight as the premiere flight planning and inflight solution across the General and Business Aviation markets. Moving forward, the Jeppesen FliteStar application will be replaced with ForeFlight.
ForeFlight offers an innovative platform that matches and exceeds the capabilities of FliteStar, with flight plan syncing between mobile and web, interactive weather, state-of-the-art hazard awareness features, document management, avionics connectivity, and so much more.
Support for the Jeppesen FliteStar application has officially ended as of December 31, 2020.
Subscription Plans to Match Your Flying
We recommend different ForeFlight subscription plans depending on which FliteStar product you use to ensure you get the capabilities you need while maximizing value.
FliteStar VFR & IFR Customers
We recommend that customers of FliteStar’s VFR and IFR products move to ForeFlight’s Pro Plus subscription plan, our most popular among GA pilots. This plan has all the essentials for VFR and IFR flying alike, along with safety-enhancing inflight features like Synthetic Vision, Profile View with terrain and airspace, Icing and Turbulence map layers, and more.
FliteStar Corporate Customers
We recommend that customers of FliteStar’s Corporate product move to ForeFlight’s Performance Plus subscription plan, our highest tier of service. This plan unlocks ForeFlight’s industry-leading performance planning capabilities with improved time and fuel calculations, optimized autorouting, 3D visualization for airports and flights, and more.
