Bootstrapped maker Foreflight.com has managed to get US Airforce and numerous other companies using its $150 per month service.

The & app overlays real time weather, changes in airports and other flight time information which was previously impossible only a few years ago when pilots had to use paper maps.

Apparently large aircraft still regularly land at the wrong  and do all sorts of things which you would think wouldn’t happen, but supposedly many airports look similar from 10,000 feet and the Earth’s magnetic fields are constantly shifting, which needs to be updated on maps every 30 days which means replacing your paper maps every 30 days.

So far they haven’t raised any capital and are not sure they have too, apparently pretty shy and don’t seek press coverage.
