Get Prepared. Get Approved. FlightCheck.
Preflighting for Creatives
FlightCheck 2022 is our next-generation, stand-alone preflight application. This quality control tool will inspect and analyze all colors, fonts, images, and more, within both native and PDF documents.
It is complete with Inventory and Packaging functionality to ensure documents are print-ready. FlightCheck offers deep insight into your desktop publishing (DTP) file content and creates a package for sharing, printing, or archiving. Preflight Reports can even be integrated as JSON or XML, directly into most automated workflows.
FlightCheck can lend a hand to graphic designers seeking a preflighting tool. This prepress solution provides all required document elements to your printer, a customer service representative (CSR) tasked with preparing job quotes, or a graphic design department looking to archive years of work.
Discover Design, Print, Output, and Archive Problems
FlightCheck will highlight errors, during preflight, such as missing fonts and images. The application will also warn about potential issues, such as embedded images or inactive fonts. Prepress specialists can use FlightCheck to help avoid any of these errors, which could cause common printing problems, or worse, re-printing the entire job.
This graphic illustrates FlightCheck’s extensive list of modifiable Ground Controls used to check for potential production errors.

I have been a fan of your company and team since forever! WOW! I don't even remember not being a fan, a patron and supporter through promotion. Your tools have helped me in some tough times. I have used different tools at every single job or client since my first encounter and opportunity to use them. Thanks for helping change and make a difference in what we do, have done, and will do. Nothing happens in this world until those of us in the Graphic Communications Industry does something with it. Thank you for all your hard work in making it 'a little bit easier'. FlightCheck has saved my life back in the day!
As a company active in Prepress, using the FlightCheck program was very valuable to us. Using this application can improve the production and lean printing process. Reza Alee, Prepress Manager
Prior to upgrading to Mac OS Catalina, I'd used your software faithfully for about 17 years. It is great to see it available again! Functionality is easy to navigate, and the new look is a great update on the original!
I have used the earlier FlightCheck Pro for almost 2 decades. It helped me prevent disasters in production and frequently improved my PDF output. For some time now, the solution was outdated. The new FlightCheck 2022 puts it back on the map. Fast, simple to use and way more intuitive as the earlier version, this excellent tool will be a constant companion to my prepress work. Good work!
Markzware has done it again! FlightCheck 2022 is a game changer! Yes, I said game changer! FlightCheck 2022 preflights PDFs, InDesign, QuarkXPress files, and opens with NOT the embedded preview, BUT THE ACTUAL DOCUMENT PREVIEW from the documents assets! And ... (drumroll please) did I add that it is not necessary to actually have the specific software? I can determine if the Quark files that a contractor has sent me are complete and print ready, without having that particular software on my computer. That also means sales, and/or production persons that have FlightCheck can determine if the contents of a package are complete and print ready, and have a preview of what the files look like before handling off those files to prepress with confidence! Huge efficiency and productivity saver! No more kicking back files and losing time. When I finish working on a job, I package files for archival with confidence, knowing all the assets have been collected. FlightCheck has the ability to automate my workflow. Win, Win! If you have used FlightCheck in the past, you really need to 'test-drive' the newly revamped 8 cylinder FlightCheck! Vroom Vroom!
I'm pleased to see that this FlightCheck release works seamlessly on newest versions of Mac OS. Nice new intuitive user interface, and FlightCheck Score is a bonus. Looking forward to continuing to use this powerful tool --for print and digital environments alike.
It has been about 11 years since I used FlightCheck. I have been building cases to get it again and buy for my team. Then I discovered that it would not follow mac as they left 32 bit. my heart sunk. I loved its ease of use and the way that it worked. I cant wait to see it come back bigger and better then before.
