Boeing unveils ForeFlight Dispatch team flight planning component

Boeing (NYSE:BA) has announced the launch of ForeFlight Dispatch, an advanced collaborative flight planning component of its web application for teams of any size, the company said.

The component delivers a next-generation, multi-user, schedule-to-mobile flight planning capability for flight operations of any size.

With Dispatch, flight plans are created by pilots, dispatchers, or automatically via integrated scheduling systems to generate cleared-as-filed routes, briefings, and operational flight plans, which are then synchronized with the ForeFlight Mobile application on crew devices.

ForeFlight Dispatch solves several common challenges for flight departments — how to efficiently load flight plans from the scheduling system, select valid and optimal flight routes, collaboratively plan, file, and monitor flights, and ultimately distribute them along with associated documents to crew members´ mobile devices.

With Dispatch, supported flight scheduling systems can send flights directly into ForeFlight so teams can start working with them right away. ForeFlight Web provides a centralized list view of all planned and filed flights so Planners have better insight into the status of any flight and the overall view of the day´s operations.
