The Directory is a listing service that enables airport and aviation businesses to inform and engage ForeFlight Mobile users through a user-friendly interface with engaging branding, artwork, photos, business, and service descriptions. Signature Flight Support’s network of FBOs is showcased in the ForeFlight Directory which features services, amenities, and affiliations, and makes FBO selection easy for the customer.

“We developed ForeFlight Mobile to make pilots more productive in the cockpit and when pre-flight planning. With Directory, our mission is to improve the service experience between fixed base operators and pilots,” says Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder and CEO. “We have seen great interest in Directory since we soft-launched this program over the summer. We are thrilled to have a broad spectrum of customers aboard that share our vision for using mobile technology to improve the trip planning experience for pilots and operators, including Signature Flight Support.”

Maria Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer of Signature Flight Support was enthusiastic regarding the new service, “Our customers are tech-savvy and looking for the best sources of flight planning information and need it at their fingertips.  ForeFlight is one of the leading flight planning tools and we are very impressed with their rapid technology development.  For pilots, FBO selection is one of the most important factors when planning a flight – and Signature is dedicated to providing world-class service that will round out that perfectly planned flight.”

Signature also announced at NBAA that it launched its updated and refreshed website which is optimized for mobile devices including iPad, tablets and smartphones as part of their leadership in FBO technology customer offerings.
