ForeFlight delivers advanced flight planning capabilities, terminal procedure charts, enroute navigation charts, moving map, synthetic vision, hazard awareness, optional Jeppesen charts, a comprehensive library of market-leading weather information and visualization features, a large library of advanced aircraft performance profiles, customizable checklists, integration with a wide range of certified avionics and portable ADS-B and GPS receivers for inflight weather and data, a built-in documents catalog and cloud document capability for management of aircraft and flight operations publications, an easy-to-use pilot logbook for keeping track of flight experience, and so much more. ForeFlight is backed by our Pilot Support Team who delivers amazingly fast, accurate, and friendly customer service.

Please note: Location is used to enable a moving map and to record track logs, the camera is used to attach photos to logbook, push notifications are used for important bulletins and flight alerts, and contacts are used to add people to flights.

ForeFlight requires a subscription. Visit our website for more information on the available plan levels.

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.

Logbook makes it easy to log and share flights, track hours, review currency, record certificates and ratings, receive electronic instructor endorsements, and create experience reports. Your data is automatically synced across all your devices and protected in secure cloud storage.

What's new in version 12.4
Internet Traffic via FlightAware
•In partnership with FlightAware, stream live global aircraft traffic directly in ForeFlight to analyze airport activity, check on an active flight, and more.
•Internet Traffic is tied to the same Traffic map layer used to display ADS-B traffic, and that layer is now accessible any time you have an internet connection on the ground. The layer will automatically switch to showing only ADS-B traffic when you connect to an external ADS-B In device.
•ForeFlight displays both airborne and ground traffic received via the internet just like it does ADS-B traffic, with altitude and tail number available at a glance, and many other details available with a tap for most traffic targets.
•ForeFlight uses the distinct position reports received from FlightAware to interpolate each airborne target’s movement and display it smoothly on the map.
•Internet Traffic is included in all ForeFlight subscription plans.

Slide-Out More Menu and Edit Tab Order
•Tapping the More tab in the bottom-right now displays a compact menu on the right side of the screen so you can view it without leaving the page you’re on.
•Downloads, Settings, and a number of infrequently-used tabs appear as modals that you can quickly dismiss by swiping down from the top. Other tabs such as Checklist and Logbook open in full screen, double-column layouts on iPad to better utilize available screen space.
•The last tab you opened from the More menu is always available just to the left of More with the new “Dynamic” tab, allowing you to quickly jump between that and your other tabs.
•Tap “Edit Tab Order” in the More menu to rearrange ForeFlight’s tab bar however you like, including tabs that were previously only available in More. Tap “Reset To Default Order” to undo your changes. 
•Tab order does not sync between devices, allowing you to have different setups on iPad and iPhone to match how you use them.

Other Notable Enhancements
•ForeFlight on iPhone now supports the FPL “Bubble Editor” on Maps, dedicated Plate and Scratchpad views, and all other previously iPad-only features with the exception of Profile View.
•Airports: the Frequencies, Services, A/FD, and More tabs have been combined into a single “Info” tab; the Forecast Discussion is nested under the TAF section; and the airport popup on Maps now uses the same layout as the Airports view itself, providing faster access to Procedures, Runways, and more.
•Maps: the Edit, NavLog, and Profile buttons have moved to the right edge of the FPL editor; hide or show the Aeronautical Map’s quick filter buttons on the left side of the screen using the new “Quick Filters” setting in Map Settings.
•Support: new tab available just above About in the More menu, with links to support resources on ForeFlight’s website and the in-app Pilot’s Guide.

Multitasking Support on iPad
•ForeFlight on the iPad now supports iOS Multitasking, allowing you to use ForeFlight in Split Screen or Slide Over with other apps at the same time.
•To open ForeFlight in Split Screen with another app that supports it, open either of them, swipe up slowly from the bottom of the screen to show the iOS dock, and drag the other app’s icon from the dock to either side of the screen and release it. Drag the separator between the two apps to change their relative sizes, or dismiss one app by dragging the separator all the way to one side of the screen. 
•Open ForeFlight on top of any app that doesn’t support Split Screen using Slide Over. Drag the ForeFlight icon from the iOS dock to the center of the screen instead of either side and release it.

Aircraft Type Restrictions in Procedure Advisor
•Procedure Advisor displays aircraft type restrictions for SIDs and STARs so you can quickly identify suitable procedures for your aircraft. 
•Colored tags for Piston, Turboprop, and Jet aircraft appear beneath procedures that are restricted to the aircraft types shown.
