GUIDE TO FOREFLIGHT FOR INDIVIDUALS
ForeFlight is the best way to view Jeppesen charts on a mobile app, offering best in class flight planning and filing, geo-referenced Jeppesen chart integration, stunning global weather visualization and world-wide airport information, integrated document management, flight logging, synthetic vision and so much more.
The Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck app (JeppFD) has been discontinued as of January 25 and has been removed from the App Store, meaning it cannot be downloaded on new devices. The app will remain on devices that already have it installed, but it will not provide chart and data updates beyond the current 2401 AIRAC cycle. All charts and data in JeppFD will become expired on February 22, 2024 when the 2402 cycle becomes effective. No new chart updates will be provided past that date.
Regulatory Support Documents
If your single- or multi-pilot operation requires and has not yet received regulatory approval to fly with ForeFlight Mobile, a document package is now available to support you in seeking approval. Visit this page and sign into your existing ForeFlight account to download the package, or contact Sales to request the documents from ForeFlight’s Sales team.
Jump Start Your Transition to ForeFlight
Smooth out your transition to ForeFlight Mobile with our interactive training that walks you through the switch from Jepp FD to ForeFlight while also highlighting the key differences between the two platforms.
See how easy it is to view and organize your Jeppesen procedure plates and Airway Manuals in ForeFlight with this short tutorial video. ForeFlight's Flight Binders feature was directly inspired by JeppFD's tab layout, so transitioning customers will find a familiar interface in ForeFlight with some notable improvements.
Smart Notes Now Available in ForeFlight Mobile!
Inspired by the popular “Smart Notes” feature in Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck, Operational Note Flags give you immediate access to critical information about airspace and other elements so you don’t have to search for them. Operational Note Flags are enabled by default but can be toggled off in the Map Settings menu.

Q: Is the Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck app being discontinued?
A: Yes. Support for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck will end on January 25, 2024 - the first day of the 2401 AIRAC chart cycle. Updated chart and data downloads will not be delivered for the 2402 AIRAC cycle and beyond, so the app will only provide expired charts and data starting with the 2402 cycle. Additionally, JeppFD will be removed from Apple’s App Store on the sunset date to prevent the app from being installed on new devices. However, the app will remain on devices that have already installed it.
Q: Are Jeppesen digital chart services being discontinued?
A: No. Subscriptions to Jeppesen digital charts will not change and there will be no disruption to a customer’s service. Only the Jeppesen chart viewing iPad app, Mobile FliteDeck, is being discontinued.
Q: Why is the Mobile FliteDeck app being discontinued?
A: ForeFlight Mobile, Boeing’s flagship app for general/business aviation, is the optimal way to view Jeppesen’s worldwide chart coverages. ForeFlight also provides industry-leading mobile flight planning and inflight capabilities, from spot-on time and fuel calculations to immersive 3D airport and route previews, with monthly feature releases that continually enhance its value and utility. Our development resources are focused on continuing to add functionality and Jeppesen integration to ForeFlight apps and web-based solutions.
Q: How do I transition from Mobile FliteDeck app to ForeFlight Mobile?
A: Individual pilots can purchase a ForeFlight subscription at foreflight.com/buy, and multi-pilot account admins can purchase a ForeFlight Business subscription at foreflight.com/buy/business or by contacting their Jeppesen Sales representative.
Q: I’m part of a business aviation flight department using Mobile FliteDeck—what do I need to do?
A: Please fill out the contact form for business aviation operators and be sure to provide us with contact information for your EFB administrator. We can then work directly with your EFB administrator as needed to set up accounts and ensure a seamless transition for your flight department. Additionally, please let your EFB administrator know directly that he/she needs to get in touch with ForeFlight's Sales team to set up an account.
Q: How do I link my Jeppesen charts to view them in ForeFlight Mobile?
A: Visit this support article for instructions on how to sign into your Jeppesen account in ForeFlight and activate available chart coverages for download. If you haven't yet deactivated your chart coverages in Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck to free up additional licesnes, you can learn how to do so here.
Q: Where can I get support for Mobile FliteDeck?
Q: Is JeppView the same as Mobile FliteDeck?
A: No. Please see the table below for more information.
|JeppView is Jeppesen’s original digital chart service. It is PC-based software that allows users to view/print charts on the ground. It also has limited route planning functionality and the ability to create “trip kits” for a particular route. At this time, JeppView is still supported but will be retired in early 2024. Similar charting functionality is currently being developed in ForeFlight Web as a future alternative tool.
|JeppView MFD (Multi-Function Display)
|JeppView MFD is sometimes used to describe a Jeppesen digital chart service that integrates with the front panel multi-function display (MFD). We have moved away from the “JeppView MFD” name in favor of descriptive naming: “Jeppesen digital chart services for avionics.” These services are sold individually, or as part of bundled data/chart packages for many Garmin and Avidyne systems. Additionally, the site keys from this chart service can also be used for ForeFlight Mobile, providing access to Jeppesen digital charts through the aircraft MFD, and a mobile device.
|Mobile FliteDeck (JeppFD)
|Jeppesen’s mobile chart viewing app for iPads. The app is identified for discontinuation—the replacement app is ForeFlight Mobile, which can seamlessly integrate Jeppesen digital chart services. Subscriptions to Jeppesen digital charts will not change and there will be no disruption to a customer’s service.
