Essentially, flightwise.com is
an aviation solution website. It links pilots, FBOs, and Aviation
enthusiasts alike -
together, online, and services both sides of the coin.
flightwise.com is a web site for
pilots of all kinds. It allows them to obtain detailed information on
airports, their runways, frequencies and services available, navaids,
airways, intersections, and other parts of the US National Airspace
System. In addition to providing this information, it also allows
users to create and store frequently used flight plans, and allows
you to file them with the FAA automatically.
What's even more useful is that the services available on
also available through wireless handheld devices, including the iPhone, Palm and Windows Mobile devices. This means that users of
these devices can be "on the field" and wirelessly access airport
information, get the latest METARs and TAFs, or file a flight plan. It helps
make flying easier.
It should be noted, however, that the information available on
should not be used for navigation. Yes, it's a disclaimer; the
information on flightwise.com
may not be correct -
only authorized FAA documents/publications should be your primary source
FBOs and other on- or near-field services can benefit from
number of ways. First and foremost, by listing their FBO with
the site, they can advertise their services and attract valuable
traffic to their facilities.
In addition, FBOs (as well as pilots)
can track flights that are on an IFR flight plan; the
Airport Summary feature allows FBOs to see which flights are due
inbound, when they will arrive, what type of aircraft they are, and
where it is currently located at any given moment - a great help for
FBO line crews and staff.
We're always working to improve and
enhance the service, and there are more, great features in the works. Stay
