Mobile FliteDeck VFR

Mobile FliteDeck VFR transition options

On 12 June, all current subscribers to our Mobile FliteDeck VFR app were informed that it will be replaced with ForeFlight Mobile as of 31 December 2019. Our parent company, Boeing, recently purchased ForeFlight, which provides the popular ForeFlight Mobile app for iPad® and iPhone®.

 

A software integration team is identifying the needs of our Mobile FliteDeck VFR customers and comparing the findings to the current versions of both apps. This will help our teams develop an even richer ForeFlight Mobile, customized for your European VFR flying requirements.

 

All those who have:

  • tried and used Mobile FliteDeck VFR in the past,
  • a current Mobile FliteDeck VFR service (expires before or after 31 December 2019)
  • not yet tested Mobile FliteDeck VFR or any other iPad app from us,

 

please contact us at +49 6102 50 70 or fra-services@jeppesen.com to get information about all of our options for your VFR flying. We want to identify your best options on an individual basis as the Mobile FliteDeck VFR transition occurs through the remainder of 2019.

    For those of us who have ForeFlight with Jeppesen charts, a revision letter similar to what JeppView had, would be a MAJOR enhancement.

  • Toni Ofner says:

    Thank you for the info.
    This is good news – if my Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR will integrate into my ForeFlight Mobile just as smoothly as my JeppFD does when I am flying IFR using ForeFlight.

    Will Foreflight be replacing the Garmin Pilot any time soon for the USA market?

  • Edouard kohler says:

    You need to put the mobile app VFR AS IS in foreflight. Nothing else will replace this app. Don’t change anything.

    When big business buy a small company this is never good as all is geared towards big money, the airlines and destroying GA. We should stop using internet and going back to paper or we will become slave to the system of big money and governments. The proof is that you are cancelling a perfect VFR product to make more money.

  • Harvey Putsche says:

    I’m interested in Mobile Flight Deck IFR because I don’t want to pay for IFR Charts Twice. With Foreflight you have to purchase an IFR subscription then purchase a Jeppesen Subscription… it should be all one price and choose which charts you want … NACO or Jepp. I prefer the Jepp but don’t want to pay for both in order to get the jepp.

    Sorry, but I got no Information that all MFD-VFR users have to migrate to ForeFlight. To me, this Information is completely new!

    Any my both mails with regard to the future of MFD-VFR remain unanswered.

    My MFD-VFR expires on Aug 02.

    What shall I do? What do you want me to do?

    By the way, I know a lot of pilots who are fans of SkyDemon which is much more cheaper than Jeppesen Apps.

    Regards,
    Michael

    What a pity. A great product is being discontinued. For flying in Europe there is NO comparison between ANYTHING and Jepp VFR FD. Although not perfect it easily rated a 95 for anyone who wanted a dependable, legal, trouble-free, INTUITIVE, one-resource solution.

    Foreflight is no comparison. To many moving parts and graphically unsatisfying to a large number of clients (remember: they could have changed earlier, had they wanted to). The beauty of Jeppesen was its dedication to VFR and uncompromisingly effective work flow for “serious VFR” (at least) in the European environment.

    I am also shocked, that Jepp/Boeing allowed me to renew my subscription automatically a few days ago ALTHOUGH they knew that this product would be discontinued (I did not). This is seriously questionable business practice.

    This is how customer choice falls by the wayside through the wonderful shareholder benefit (?) of “consolidation”. Maybe we should wait until Airbus puts out something better (won’t happen)? The European Jepp representatives tried hard to build a community around the Jepp VFR product. I do not envy their situation now. A lot of people must feel seriously let down. Does Boeing actually expect that all these disappointed customers will automatically transition to Foreflight (having had hat option earlier, as already stated)?

    Let us hope that “G” develops their (Jepp-compatible) product to provide an alternative (unfortunately also not VFR centric, and still missing essential features).

    A disappointed long-term user.
