Aero Club of New England 2021 Godfrey L. Cabot Award Presentation
The 2021 Godfrey L. Cabot Award
will be presented to
ForeFlight's Tyson Weihs and Jason Miller
In recognition of their research and development of an advanced electronic flight bag that incorporates all aspects of flight planning — increasing pilot safety for private, commercial and military aviation.
ForeFlight was formed in 2007 with one guiding mission, to create software that makes flight planning easier. Since then, ForeFlight has not only revolutionized the pilot’s flight bag, but also laid the groundwork to make mobile flight planning apps essential to flight operations.
Since its founding in the garages of Miller and Weihs in 2007, the company has grown into a multi-national operation with offices in the United States and Europe. ForeFlight serves personal, business, military, and commercial flight operations around the world. ForeFlight has been recognized for the impact it has made improving safety of flight.
