Boeing completed the acquisition of ForeFlight, a provider of mobile and Web-based aviation applications. ForeFlight has partnered with Boeing for the past two years to offer aviators Jeppesen’s aeronautical data and charts through ForeFlight’s mobile platforms.

“We are excited to build on ForeFlight's tremendous success in personal, business and defense aviation so we can provide next-generation, integrated tools to our aviation customers today,” said Ken Sain, Boeing VP of digital solutions and analytics. “This acquisition also expands Boeing's rapidly growing, unparalleled digital services portfolio which will enable us to compete and win in the $2.8 trillion, 10-year services market.”

Terms of the approved deal are not being disclosed and do not affect Boeing’s financial guidance. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, ForeFlight has approximately 180 employees.
