FLIGHT PLANNING, BRIEFING, & FILING
Plan flights with Touch Planning on the Map or full-featured form-based Flights view. Tap out a route in seconds and quickly see if flights will be affected by weather or TFRs. Helpful Route, Altitude, and Procedure Advisors make planning easy and accurate. Generate a graphical preflight briefing and file your flight plan directly from the app. Print a professional-grade Navlog for inflight reference.

WEATHER
Interactive weather layers include animated radar, global satellite and winds aloft, global icing, turbulence, and surface analysis, graphical AIR/SIGMETs, flight category, visibility, and more. View decoded METARs, TAFs, and MOS forecasts. Thoughtfully organized Imagery view puts a full range of forecast tools at your fingertips.

PLATES, CHARTS, & MAPS
Both VFR and IFR operations are covered with all of the essentials required for planning and navigation: data-driven Aeronautical Maps, VFR Sectionals, High/Low Enroute charts, SIDs, STARs, approach and taxi charts, and terrain, satellite, and street map views.

GEO-REFERENCED APPROACHES & TAXI CHARTS
Plates and taxi charts enable the real time display of your GPS location on the chart. They can also be overlaid on the Maps view along with weather and hazards for the ultimate situational awareness.

GLOBAL HAZARD AWARENESS TECHNOLOGY
Plan and fly with more confidence in all conditions and terrain. Top-down-view Hazard Advisor map layer, Terrain Profile View, and 3D Synthetic Vision seamlessly integrate into the map display to depict a clear picture of terrain and obstacle hazards anywhere in the world. When paired with an AHRS source, Synthetic Vision provides a backup attitude display.

What's new in version 13.5
Hold Advisor
\t•\tEasily insert a holding pattern anywhere in your route with flexible parameters and automatic pattern entry selection.
\t•\tAccess Hold Advisor from within Procedure Advisor to insert a hold just before your destination airport, or tap on any waypoint in your route or elsewhere on the map to add a hold at that location.
\t•\tHold Advisor provides parameters for inbound or outbound legs, the pattern’s length (defined by either time or distance), left or right turns, and optional altitude, speed, and EFC settings.
\t•\tAfter adding the holding pattern to your route you can tap its bubble in the FPL Editor to make additional changes to it. 
\t•\tForeFlight does not yet support sending holding patterns to connected avionics via Flight Plan Transfer.
\t•\tHold Advisor is included in Pro Plus subscriptions and above.


Augmented Procedures™
\t•\tQuickly find, select, and display the appropriate minimums for an approach to supplement the approach plate and reduce the risk of errors.
\t•\tAfter selecting an approach and transition in Procedure Advisor the Minimum section appears below, with fields for Aircraft Approach Category and Equipment Status, where you can specify if any of the airport’s approach systems like ALS or RAIL are inoperative.
\t•\tUsing this information and high-quality Jeppesen procedure data, ForeFlight will display the relevant minimums for each approach type that may be used for the approach, along with any applicable restriction notes for each. Tap any of the available minimums to display them on the approach preview on the right.
\t•\tAugmented Procedures™ expands on the existing Custom Minimum field, which is still available if you wish to define a more conservative custom altitude manually. In both cases the altitude will be displayed directly on the map with a magenta marker at the missed approach point.
\t•\tAfter inserting the approach into your route, tap its bubble in the FPL Editor and tap Change Minimum to reopen the same menu and select a different minimum or update the Aircraft Category and/or Equipment Status.
\t•\tAugmented Procedures™ is included in Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.


Runway Analysis: New Aircraft
\t•\tForeFlight’s advanced Runway and Obstacle Analysis capability for jets now supports Bombardier’s Global 5000, Global Express, Global XRS, Learjet 60XR, and Learjet 70; Gulfstream’s GVII-G500; and Embraer’s Phenom 300.
\t•\tRunway Analysis is available for a growing list of aircraft types as an add-on to ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.


Runway Analysis: EOP Visualization
\t•\tPreview the ground tracks of available engine-out procedures (EOPs) in Runway Analysis along with their textual instructions for enhanced visualization while flight planning.
\t•\tTap the EOP line in the Takeoff Analysis page to open the EOP selector, which lists the available EOPs below a map centered on the departure airport.
\t•\tTap on an EOP in the list to highlight it in blue on the map, while other unselected EOPs are colored gray.
\t•\tNot all EOPs support visualization, including VOR-based EOPs from Jeppesen, although these are still displayed in the list below the map with their textual instructions.
\t•\tEngine Out Procedures are a critical component of ForeFlight Runway Analysis, which is available as an add-on to ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.


Military Flight Bag: Select Multiple MTR Types
\t•\tGovernment and military pilots flying with ForeFlight Military Flight Bag can now view multiple types of Military Training Routes on the map at once, choosing any combination of Instrument, Visual, and Slow Routes to better support mission requirements.
\t•\tWith the Aeronautical Map enabled, open the Map Settings menu and tap Military Training Routes to select the type(s) of MTR to display on the map.
\t•\tIn addition to simply viewing MTRs, you can tap on them to view detailed information, add them to your route, and file them as part of a DD-1801 or ICAO flight plan.
