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?

Marco and Philipp first meet at work. With time, they share their enthusiasm for KTM motorcycles and appreciate each others talent to "get things work".

2008

Both seeking new career opportunities. Philipp sets up mindphuel llc while Marco continues working for another financial institute.

At lunch, Marco is inspired of his new passion, his training for a private pilots license for helicopters. After intensive two months of development, the first version pf goVFR is open for beta testing, already starting with a set of approx. 11´000 airports and waypoints around the globe.

Thrived by the high demand and much more dev time, a second version sees light that is focusing more on the actual need and wishes of the growing community.

goVFR replaces its engine, get's new wings, reduces wind resistance and polishes the whole body. In plain language, not only is there a responsive design to serve all kind of browsers and devices, we launched a goVFR navigation app, now available in the app stores for Android and Apple devices (alphabetical order).
