What are the details of the new alliance between Jeppesen and ForeFlight?
Through a contractual relationship, Jeppesen and ForeFlight are teaming up to provide pilots and flight departments with quality, reliable, high-performance tools that address the challenges they face in rapidly changing operational environments. Jeppesen charts are available now on ForeFlight Mobile and a joint product for airlines and other large-scale users will be available in Q1 2018.
General and Business Aviation customers have access to global Jeppesen NavData®, terrain, and obstacle data, and also have the option to add Jeppesen’s industry-leading library of terminal, enroute, SID and STAR charts on the ForeFlight Mobile app. Early in 2018, a next-generation FliteDeck Pro offering will be built upon the functionality of the recently released FliteDeck Pro version 3.0/9.0. This alliance will advance the development and delivery of innovative products and services faster than either organization could deliver on its own.
What ForeFlight Mobile features and capabilities are enhanced by the ForeFlight-Jeppesen partnership?
The partnership offers pilots a one-stop-shop for all of their flight planning, weather, and charting needs. Jeppesen's FMS-grade navigation data is integrated into ForeFlight's innovative data-driven Aeronautical Maps, Procedure Advisor, and other parts of the app that display airspace, airway, navaid, airport, and, waypoint information. In addition, ForeFlight's hazard awareness technology uses Jeppesen's high-resolution worldwide terrain and obstacle database. Synthetic Vision, Hazard Advisor, and Terrain Profile view are available anywhere in the world.

Watch: Purchase through ForeFlight
Watch: Link Your Existing Jeppesen
I have a single pilot subscription with Jeppesen and a ForeFlight Mobile subscription.
You have a couple of options in this scenario:
Keep your current Jeppesen subscription. You can link your Jeppesen account inside the ForeFlight Mobile app using your Jeppesen credentials. Please note that this option uses one Jeppesen license (seat) per device. If you don't have any Jeppesen licenses available, see this FAQ for instructions on uninstalling a license from other devices or applications.
Contact Jeppesen to cancel your Jeppesen subscription and repurchase through the ForeFlight website. With this option you will have the ForeFlight individual license model that allows you to use Jeppesen charts on all of your allotted devices (one iPad, plus one backup iPad, and one iPhone).
I am a ForeFlight subscriber, but I do not currently have a single pilot subscription with Jeppesen.
You can purchase the Jeppesen charts on the ForeFlight website. We recommend that you purchase using the same email address your ForeFlight account is currently listed under. Please note this will restart your ForeFlight subscription for a year, applying any unused credit towards the purchase.
I have a single pilot subscription with Jeppesen, but do not have a ForeFlight subscription.
You can contact Jeppesen to cancel your current subscription. You can then purchase ForeFlight and your selected Jeppesen chart coverages in one transaction via the ForeFlight website. With this option you will have the ForeFlight individual license model that will allow you to use Jeppesen charts on all of your allotted devices (one iPad, plus one backup iPad, and one iPhone).
I have a single pilot Jeppesen chart subscription for my panel-mounted avionics. Does this subscription allow me to also view Jeppesen charts on ForeFlight Mobile?
The chart subscription you purchase from Jeppesen for your panel-mount avionics includes access to activate Jeppesen charts on up to 4 devices. You will sign in using your Jeppesen credentials in ForeFlight Mobile to activate Jeppesen charts on your two iPads and/or one iPhone.

I am a flight department operator with multiple pilots and we have both active ForeFlight Mobile subscriptions and Jeppesen chart subscriptions. How do we get Jeppesen charts on each of our ForeFlight Mobile installations?
The admin (parent account) on the ForeFlight account will first sign in to www.foreflight.com, then click on Profile > Jeppesen tab and sign in with Jeppesen credentials. This will link the ForeFlight and Jeppesen accounts and then each user (the child accounts) will open ForeFlight Mobile and go to More > Jeppesen and then select the Jeppesen coverage to activate.

I am a flight department with multiple pilots and I am interested in having Jeppesen charts on my ForeFlight Business account. Do I have to purchase enough coverages for all of my child accounts?

Each pilot on the ForeFlight account will individually activate a Jeppesen seat on their device up to the number of Jeppesen seats you have purchased.
