Started in 2000, flightwise.com's main goal has been to simplify and streamline the processes involved in all aspects of aviation. We've got a number of FREE services available for people of all walks of life; the aviation professional, the aviation enthusiast, or just the casual user who needs to track a flight!
Feel free to have a look around our site by clicking on any one of the main feature buttons along the top! Again, many of the services are FREE, and if any of the services require a subscription, you'll be prompted as such first!

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 flightwise.com are 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 flightwise.com 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 of information.
FBOs and other on- or near-field services can benefit from flightwise.com in a 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 tuned to our home page for additional announcements!
