Generate a graphical preflight briefing and file your flight plan directly from the app. Print a professional-grade Navlog for inflight reference.

What's new in version 13.3.1
Dynamic Winds & Temperatures
\t•\tView global forecast wind speed, direction, and temperatures at multiple altitudes and times using these stunning animated weather layers.
\t•\tBoth the “Winds (Temps)” and “Winds (Speeds)” layers use colorful heat maps covering the globe to represent their primary forecast values at the selected altitude and time.
\t•\tOverlaid on each layer’s heat map are smoothly-flowing particle animations representing wind direction and speed, providing an intuitive view of large-scale weather patterns in relation to the layer’s primary forecast value (wind speed or temperature).
\t•\tBoth layers are included with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

Weather Layer Legend
\t•\tEasily interpret many of ForeFlight’s graphical weather layers with a new color legend just above the time slider.

Introducing ForeFlight Labs
\t•\tForeFlight Labs is a collection of cutting-edge capabilities that need your feedback before becoming fully-fledged features!
\t•\tThese features are disabled by default, but you can enable them independently in More > Account under the ForeFlight Labs banner.
\t•\tLike other features, those added to ForeFlight Labs may be limited by subscription plan level, so only those features available with your subscription will be visible in ForeFlight Labs.

ForeFlight Labs: Taxi Routes
\t•\tChart a course to or from the runway with an interactive and contextually-aware taxi route bubble editor. Available as a ForeFlight Labs feature with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.
\t•\tTap the new Taxi Route button in the Maps FPL window, the Plates view, or tap the bubble for any airport in your route and tap “Edit Taxi Route” to open the Taxi Route Editor for that airport.
\t•\tSelect from a list of runways and FBOs to set your starting point, then select a destination runway or FBO from the same list.
\t•\tForeFlight will automatically create a taxi route between the two points which you can edit by tapping taxiway names, hold short and crossing locations, back taxi or runway taxi instructions, and other options.
\t•\tYour finished taxi route is displayed directly on the moving map as well as on the airport’s diagram in Plates. Tap the route on the map to clear it or make additional edits.

Download in Background
\t•\tForeFlight can now download charts and data even when the app is in the background, allowing you to use other apps on your iPad or iPhone without interrupting the download process.

Airport 3D Runway Lighting
\t•\tPrepare for a night approach or establish a mental picture with toggleable Day/Night modes and realistic Runway Lights in Airport 3D.
\t•\tUse the Day/Night toggle in the bottom-right corner of Airport 3D to dim the surrounding terrain and expose the airport’s runway lights.
\t•\tAirport 3D is available with ForeFlight Performance plans.

New Ways to Import Documents
\t•\tEasily import documents into ForeFlight and add them to custom binders using a dedicated Import button and intuitive drag-and-drop gestures.
\t•\tThe new + button in the Imported Drive’s toolbar allows you to add files from the iOS Files app, your Photo Library, or by taking new photos with your device’s camera.
\t•\tOn iPad you can also drag-and-drop files from other apps that support the gesture into the Imported Drive by opening both apps in split screen and dragging files over to ForeFlight.

Link Multiple Jeppesen Accounts
\t•\tConnect more than one Jeppesen account in ForeFlight for expanded access to chart coverages, or combine linked coverages with those purchased through ForeFlight for even greater flexibility.
\t•\tSign into multiple Jeppesen accounts by tapping “Add Jeppesen Account” in More > Jeppesen after adding the initial account.
\t•\tIndividual customers can also combine their chart coverages from a linked Jeppesen account with those purchased through ForeFlight.
