Garmin International, Inc. announced the initial phase of integration between the Garmin Pilot™ app and the FltPlan.com web portal. As a result of Garmin’s acquisition of FltPlan.com in August, both companies have made rapid progress in merging portfolios. Beginning in mid-October, pilots can use FltPlan.com for pre-flight planning and filing, and automatically view the same flight plan within the Garmin Pilot app on Apple® mobile devices. This is the first of a series of cohesive enhancements between the FltPlan.com website and the Garmin product line.
The company says that FltPlan.com and Garmin Pilot customers can now experience a seamless transition between the FltPlan.com website and the Garmin Pilot application within the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, Venezuela and Colombia. The initial phase of this integration allows customers to create a flight plan on the FltPlan.com website and automatically view the same flight plan information within the Trip Planning section of the Garmin Pilot app.
Within the app, customers can also view recent and future trips that have been created on the website. Once the flight plan populates in the app, pilots can transfer it wirelessly to compatible Garmin avionics or a Garmin integrated flight deck. Additionally, the popular navigation log found on the FltPlan.com website can also be viewed with-in Garmin Pilot under the NavLog tab in Trip Planning.
Pilots can create a free FltPlan.com account to take advantage of web-based flight planning and flight management services, which includes access to weather, airport information, fuel prices, printable navigation logs, aircraft performance data and more.

For new customers, Garmin Pilot is available from the Apple App Store as a free download for the first 30 days. After the 30-day trial period, customers may purchase an annual subscription of Garmin Pilot starting at $74.99. Visit www.garmin.com/aviation for additional informa-tion.
