Transition to ForeFlight Mobile
Support for Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck will be ending in a phased approach through the end of 2023. We encourage all remaining JeppFD customers to start a free trial of ForeFlight Mobile with included worldwide Jeppesen chart coverages.
We are hard at work ensuring Jeppesen customers have a smooth transition for both domestic and international operations. You will be given plenty of advance notice prior to the removal of JeppFD from the App Store.
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.
Give ForeFlight a try and see for yourself how it can make flight planning and flying easier, safer, and more enjoyable. We recommend that multi-pilot Mobile FliteDeck accounts move to our Business Performance subscription plan, which adds powerful account administration and collaboration tools to ForeFlight’s Performance Plus plan.

Q: Is JeppView the same as Mobile FliteDeck?
A: No. Please see the table below for more information.
|JeppView||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.|
|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.|
