The goVFR History
This is the comprehensive, thrilling story of Marco and Philipp, taking off to higher spheres in flight planning. One question remains after all: At which flight level does a higher sphere start?
2005Marco and Philipp first meet at work. With time, they share their enthusiasm for KTM motorcycles and appreciate each others talent to "get things work".
2008Both seeking new career opportunities. Philipp sets up mindphuel llc while Marco continues working for another financial institute.
2009/03/30At lunch, Marco is inspired of his new passion, his training for a private pilots license for helicopters.
2009/06/02Marcos need for an easy flight plan solution leads to lunchtime again.
Marcos version: A perfectly prepared project description and tool specification, combined with my sophisticated argumentation convinced Philipp in a second.
Philipps version: Despite a non existing sales pitch, I just love this kind of projects with vague specifications. They are challenging and the sky is the limit. Or even not, in this specific case.
Whatever or wherever the truth lies, after a couple of days and thoughts, they decide to launch goVFR.
2009/07/09With the practical exam, Marco finishes PPL H instructions. And now learns to fly.
2009/08/01After intensive two months of development, goVFR is open for beta testing, starting with a set of approx. 11´000 airports and waypoints around the globe.
