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.

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.

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.

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.

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 15.1.1
Controlled Airspace Alerts
\t•\tReceive visual and auditory warnings as you approach, enter, and exit a controlled airspace.
\t•\tControlled airspace classes A, B, C, and D are supported, as well as ATZ, MATZ, and TMZ. Restricted and prohibited airspace and MOAs are not currently supported.
\t•\tForeFlight will provide a visual and auditory alert when you are three minutes away and within 500 feet of altitude of the airspace by default. Subsequent alerts as you enter and exit the airspace will be visual only.
\t•\tTap the visual alerts to dismiss them.
\t•\tToggle alerts for different types of airspace and adjust the alerting range and altitude buffer in Map Settings > Alerts.

Plate/Chart Binder Printing
\t•\tIf you prefer to fly with printed backups of procedure plates/charts, speed up your preflight workflow by printing entire Binders rather than individual plates.
\t•\tFrom the Plates/Charts view, tap into any Flight Binder and tap the Send To button in the top right, then tap Print Binder to open the iOS Print Options menu. The print button is directly accessible in the top-left while viewing an Other Binder.
\t•\tAdditionally, iOS/iPadOS 16 offers more flexible printing options, including deselecting individual pages by tapping them in the print preview and printing multiple pages per sheet using the Layout menu.

Airport NOTAM Filter
\t•\tQuickly search for airport NOTAMs by entering a keyword to see all published NOTAMs containing it at that airport.
\t•\tAccess the filter at the top of each NOTAM list in Airports > NOTAMs or from any airport popup in ForeFlight.

Airport Rescue & Firefighting Information
\t•\tAccess published Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting information in Airports > Info.
\t•\tIf no information exists for a given airport, the Category will be marked as Unknown.

Honeywell ADG Integration
\t•\tSeamlessly upload your flight plan to your Honeywell panel via Honeywell’s Aircraft Data Gateway (ADG).
\t•\tAfter connecting to the ADG’s Wi-Fi network, open ForeFlight and look in More > Devices to confirm the connection and view information about it.
\t•\tTo upload a flight plan to your Honeywell panel, tap the Send To button in the top-right corner of the Flights view and tap Panel. In addition to the route string, ForeFlight will send the initial cruise altitude, average cruise winds aloft, cruise fuel flow, winds aloft for every waypoint in the route, and passenger/payload information.
\t•\tYou can also upload your planned route from the FPL Editor on Maps, but this will only provide the route string with none of the additional information sent from Flights.
\t•\tThe Honeywell ADG integration currently supports ADG-300 and ADG-400 models.
\t•\tAvailable with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support
\t•\tForeFlight’s advanced Runway Analysis product for turbine aircraft now supports the following aircraft models:
\t•\tHawker Beechcraft 400A and 400XP
\t•\tLearjet 45 (Code E) and 40 (Code B & C)
