All aircraft flying across any U.S. border & Mexico are required to file an eAPIS manifest (Electronic Advance Passenger Information System).
eApis requires the pilot to send an electronic manifest to CBP (Customs and Border Protection). This manifest should include flight, passenger and crew information and should be submitted on any flight arriving or departing the US and Mexico.
Starting with release 2 also supports Mexico Apis submissions (see our website for details).
FlashPass is designed to make the process of compliance efficient, quick and friendly.

Ratings and Reviews
I have known about Flashpass for some time. I didn't understand the benefits. Now I am a believer. Flashpass takes eApis to a whole new level. Creating crew and passengers(and having them always available) along with manifests streamlines the process.
Gone are the days of one manifest partially completed at a time. Crossing the border just became extremely easy for me. Select the manifest, click to file it, forward a copy to your email for confirmation with all the info - safe that infest for future use. Nice!
Lastly, customer services is always right there for support if you have any question at all.
Must have for border crossing
I used eAPIS on the native TSA system early on and it was and remains cumbersome to say the least with potentially big penalties if you screw up.
Since discovering Flashpass several years ago when flying from Alaska to the lower 48, border crossing has become so easy that I demonstrated Flashpass to a friend by crossing from WA state to Vancouver BC for lunch and back afterwards.
Now border crossing is easy. 1) File a flight plan, 2) call Customs to get landing rights, and 3) get TSA clearance to depart or arrive with Flashpass. The latter used to be the most difficult, now its the easiest part of a border crossing thanks to Flashpass.
Great service !!
When I first bought it, I emailed late afternoon for some questions and right away I got a call back and they guided me through the process. I had a flight next day early and really needed to make sure I was doing things right. The following day I got a call and email asking how it had gone using there app and crossing to Mexico. When I pressed send on my app I immediately got email back with the confirmation number.
Over all great app, and better yet, great service at a very reasonable price. I am very happy with it.
