Through this program, member FBOs will additionally be offered preferential pricing should they choose to purchase an enhanced listing with ForeFlight.
“This app is cutting-edge and has impressed the pilot community in a very short period of time. We understand the importance of being proactive when it comes to the increased use of these new pilot tools, this includes ensuring that our network of FBOs are prominent and visible in the tools that an increasing number of pilots are utilizing to assist them with trip planning” said Michael Clementi, President of World Fuel Services’ Aviation Segment.
Since ForeFlight’s founding in 2007, the company has become a primary source of flight planning, electronic charts, and pre-flight and in-flight weather information for the majority of pilots flying with iPads. With ForeFlight Mobile, information gathering about destinations, expected routes, weather and other hazards is made fast, easy, and intuitive.
“We developed ForeFlight Mobile to make pilots more productive in the cockpit and when pre-flight planning. With Directory, our mission is to improve the service experience between airport base operators and pilots,” says Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder and CEO. “We are thrilled that the World Fuel Services Network shares our vision for using mobile technology to improve the trip planning experience for pilots and operators.”
World Fuel Services sees this as only the beginning of a great long-term relationship and looks forward to expanding and growing together with ForeFlight.
