Flight-Plan Co., Ltd. (株式会社フライト・プラン) was a developer and publisher based in Gifu-shi, Gifu-ken, Japan. It was established September 27, 1989 and headed by Masami Watanabe (渡邉正巳), formerly of Thinking Rabbit, for its entire existence. In its earlier years, it was primarily known for producing relatively high-quality console conversions of PC and arcade titles, but later switched to producing original titles, primarily the Black/Matrix and Summon Night franchises. The company began publishing its own original titles in 2007.

Flight-Plan shut down sometime in mid-2010, with former staff establishing Felistella (which continued development of Flight-Plan's flagship Summon Night series) and Apollosoft.
