Cutter Flight Management Receives A061 Approval For ForeFlight Mobile

iPads With ForeFlight App Approved For All Part 135 Operations

ForeFlight has announced that Cutter Flight Management (CFMI) of Phoenix, AZ, has received authorization from the FAA to use iPads running ForeFlight Mobile during all phases of flight while conducting air carrier operations.

The approval was finalized by issuance of OpSpec A061 for a Class I EFB with Type A and B software. Cutter Flight Management received the approval after a comprehensive six-month evaluation period conducted on its aircraft fleet including the Citation CE-560 series, BeechJet series, and King Air C90 series aircraft. During the evaluation period, CFMI crews utilized the Apple iPad 32GB model with WiFi capabilities.

“Guidance from the local FAA representatives was invaluable throughout the evaluation process” said Carlo Sabbatini, Cutter Flight Management pilot and iPad EFB program manager. “The collaborative relationship with ForeFlight was also instrumental to the success of the program.”

“Cutter Aviation and Cutter Flight Management led the way and cleared a path forward for operators seeking alternatives to substantially more expensive electronic charting and approval options”, said Tyson Weihs, Co-Founder of ForeFlight. “Through the efforts of the Cutter Flight Management team, they have demonstrated that an operator can ‘do it yourself’ when seeking an OpSpec A061 approval to use iPads in the cockpit, thus saving tens of thousands of dollars in the process.”

ForeFlight says that operators choosing to use the Apple iPad and solutions like ForeFlight Mobile can save a tremendous amount of expense on their electronic charting, substantially enhance the iPad’s capabilities with preflight planning tools and easily accessible airport, A/FD and FBO information, and make happier pilots and operations managers in the process.
