ForeFlight May Have to Raise Prices If the AeroNav’s Proposal Survives
"If you believe the proposal is out of line, contact your representatives..."
, - December 13th ForeFlight attended AeroNav’s informational session regarding its proposed Digital Chart Agent program. Approximately 70 professionals were in attendance representing avionics manufacturers, aviation software companies, aviation websites, chart makers, chart agents, industry associations, and aviation services providers.
In a statement released today on its -blog.foreflight.com- ForeFlight said the following:
“We are confident AeroNav will substantially modify the proposal presented at the meeting. It is disconnected from market reality and based on invalid market assumptions. ForeFlight is committed to helping AeroNav find a more reasonable solution that the market will accept.
(…) Ultimately, ForeFlight may have to raise prices if the proposal survives the legal challenge it will invite. The proposal does include quantity discounts and a hard dollar cap, so at this point we don’t foresee a big increase in prices. We are committed to keeping ForeFlight Mobile an exceptional value.
(…)Regardless of what happens with future prices, we are committed to fulfilling subscription obligations for existing customers’ subscriptions. If you currently have a subscription to ForeFlight Mobile, we will continue to deliver the service you expect.
(…)If you believe the proposal is out of line, contact your representatives, the Congressional General Aviation Caucus, AOPA, NBAA representatives, GAMA, and FAA management.”
