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.

Camera Modes & Route Line in 3D Review
•Follow planned and recorded flights from a new interactive third-person view of your aircraft and route line.
•Use the new Camera Mode buttons in the bottom-left of 3D Review to switch between first- and third-person modes. In third-person mode the camera stays centered on your aircraft, allowing you to pan, tilt, and zoom the view to see it from any angle.
•In both modes your route line appears as a blue curtain that the aircraft travels along, making it easy to see your route’s path before and after your current position.
•Track Logs recorded with an AHRS-capable device like Sentry will incorporate pitch and bank data into the blue aircraft’s movements in third-person view.
•3D Review is available with ForeFlight Performance plans.

•Imported G1000 track logs retain all types of flight data supported by ForeFlight’s own Track Logs, allowing you to use them with features like Track Log Review and 3D Review. 


Plain Text PIREPs on Maps
•ForeFlight will now translate and display PIREP information in a more readable format, similar to how ForeFlight displays METARs and TAFs.

•The International Navlog Template is available with ForeFlight Performance plans. 


Tap on Distance Rings to Change Style
•Quickly change the Distance Rings style on the Maps view by tapping any of the labels attached to each ring. You can then select any of the available styles, including Automatic (Distance), Automatic (Time), or five fixed distance and time settings.
