We are excited to share that the Living Legends of Aviation Awards presented ForeFlight co-founders Tyson Weihs and Jason Miller with the Aviation Entrepreneur of the Year Award on January 19.
Hosted in Beverly Hills, California by John Travolta and Harrison Ford, the 15th annual award ceremony honored individuals who have made significant contributions to aviation.
Since our founding in 2007, our guiding mission has always been to build software that makes flight planning easier. Today, ForeFlight has not only revolutionized the pilot’s flight bag but also serves the needs of pilots and flight departments all over the world, and across all segments of aviation including personal, business, military, commercial, and education.
“ForeFlight has been an incredible adventure. It is deeply satisfying and the thrill of a lifetime to have put together a team that has built such an amazing product that our customers love – for that, we will be forever thankful.” – Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder, and CEO.
Aviation Today recently caught up with Tyson to discuss recent milestones, thoughts on the industry, and the future of ForeFlight. Read the full article here.
