“It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.”
After trying out Foreflight on a friends tablet, there's no looking back to fltplan. Not nearly as good, looking for a good deal on an iPad now. It's kind of like when you fly with a Lightspeed and someone hands you a Bose A20 to try out

Makes you wonder how much it will cost moving forward. I love the App. I use it all the time flight planning, especially for airports I've never been to, the "nearby" button is great for picking alternates, and the "CFS" button to the page of the flight sup you need is so quick. The updates can be a pain, but just having it on my phone in case the ipad shits the bed makes me feel more comfortable relying on technology.August 29, 2018
Dear loyal FltPlan user:
Nineteen years ago, FltPlan was created to provide pilots with an accurate, reliable and integrated flight planning and filing service on the web. From there, FltPlan.com grew into the largest flight planning company in North America, creating 6.3 million flight plans annually. To our loyal customers that have supported us for nearly two decades, I am extremely grateful.
Today begins a new chapter for us, as I am pleased to announce that FltPlan has been acquired by Garmin International, a leading provider of avionics and flight deck technologies. Together with Garmin, we’re excited for the opportunity to merge the exceptional talents and strengths from each company to provide superior pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight solutions to the aviation industry.
Looking to the future, this acquisition will integrate FltPlan’s industry-leading web portal, FltPlan.com, and mobile application, FltPlan Go, into the Garmin ecosystem to create a superior portfolio of end-to-end services. Premium flight planning services and programs, such as FltLogic, FltPlan Manager, APIS/eAPIS, SMS, pre-departure clearances, international handling, overflight fees and more, will continue to grow and improve as we work together to expand the capabilities of FltPlan.com and FltPlan Go.
Garmin is committed to ensuring FltPlan continues to be the industry-leading choice for domestic and international electronic flight plan filing and services. Collectively, we are dedicated to increasing the quality of innovation, support and service that you have come to expect from our companies over the years.
Again, thank you for putting your trust in FltPlan over the years. We look forward to continuing to serve you as part of the Garmin family for many years to come.
