Luxaviation has completed deployment of ForeFlight Dispatch to its flight planning teams worldwide. Each of Luxaviation's AOCs (air operator certificates) will next submit requests for approval from their applicable regulator to use the ForeFlight Mobile app as their sole paperless charting solution in the cockpit, as well as use of ForeFlight Runway Analysis for runway performance and obstacle analysis calculations.

Luxaviation flight planners are now planning and filing flight plans in Dispatch for a combined total of 81 aircraft between its worldwide AOCs, using ForeFlight's next-generation planning solution to collaboratively dispatch and monitor flights.

Luxaviation initially signed a digital services agreement with ForeFlight last year at the EBACE 2022 event; this deployment of ForeFlight Dispatch to the AOCs represents the first stage in Luxaviation's full deployment of ForeFlight's integrated product suite across its operations.

ForeFlight Dispatch goes far beyond enabling flight planners to collaborate, plan, file and monitor flight plans. From the most basic domestic flights to complex international trips with stringent route constraints, ForeFlight Dispatch produces optimised Eurocontrol-valid routes with speed and flexibility. Planners using Dispatch quickly discover how much time and effort they save thanks to the system's automation capabilities, including flexible operational rules for adapting Dispatch to unique operational needs. Finished flight plans are transmitted to pilots directly in ForeFlight Mobile in seconds, complete with detailed briefing documents for them to review right away. This solution is the first in the market to truly integrate a flight planning product and mobile flight deck application, with consistent data seamlessly syncing between the two in real time. This all results in improved collaboration and reduced workloads for flight planners and pilots alike.

“What we needed was a next-generation, 'plug-and-play' product to replace our legacy flight planning tools that would increase the connectivity between ground and flight operations,” says chief aviation officer Robert Fisch. “Having followed ForeFlight since its entrance into the European market, we decided to implement its integrated product suite worldwide. The experience has been a true testament to the passion and engagement of those at ForeFlight; our teams worked well together and our relationship has only grown stronger over the past year. Today, ForeFlight Dispatch has fully replaced our legacy flight planning tools; a giant leap towards the digitisation of our flight operations, which has greatly improved the experience of our teams worldwide.”

Luxaviation is one of the inaugural members of ForeFlight's Development Partnership Program, an initiative that gives select customers the opportunity to collaborate on future innovations in flight operations software under development at ForeFlight. As part of this programme, Luxaviation has already contributed to the development of two high-value features for jet operators: Mass and Balance Envelope Curtailment and Ballast Fuel Support. Released earlier this year, both of these features are important milestones in ForeFlight's rapid development towards a true one stop shop for all business aviation flight planning.
