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.

What’s New

Version 16.5.2

Wake Turbulence Alerts
• Avoid unexpected wake turbulence with the help of visual and auditory alerts as well as a map-based wake depiction.
• While receiving inflight traffic information from a connected ADS-B or FLARM receiver, ForeFlight continuously calculates wake effects from nearby aircraft based on their position, altitude, speed, weight category, and winds aloft information, then compares these with your current flight path.
• If it determines that an intersection is likely, ForeFlight issues a prominent visual and audio alert that includes the wake-producing aircraft’s weight category and call sign, and your current distance from the estimated wake location in nautical miles.
• Additionally, ForeFlight depicts the wake’s estimated position and relative altitude directly on the map as a colored ribbon trailing behind the aircraft. Red portions of the ribbon indicate the position of the wake near your current altitude, while light green portions indicate areas where the wake is either above or below you.
• The point at which you’ll intersect the wake path based on your current flight path is also indicated as a short white strip across the ribbon marked by double chevrons, allowing you to more easily gauge where you’ll cross the wake path relative to the wake itself.
• You can disable Wake Turbulence alerts in Map Settings > Alerts or More > Settings > Alerts.
• Available with ForeFlight Pro subscriptions and above. 

New VFR Add-On Charts
• Customers in the Middle East and South Africa can now add VFR charts from Rogers Data and DFS to any subscription that includes the corresponding regions.
• New Rogers Data 1:1M Saudi Arabia and 1:1M UAE, Bahrain, and Qatar VFR charts are available for customers with the Middle East & South Asia region as part of their ForeFlight subscription.
• New DFS Special Rules Areas 1:250k for Johannesburg and Cape Town VFR charts are available for customers with the Africa region as part of their ForeFlight subscription.

Expired account

It would be a great idea for foreflight to provide 30 day trial… my trial expired 2 or so years ago before the Australian updates occurred.

Developer Response ,

ozcountry please contact the Pilot Support Team directly at team@foreflight.com and we'll be happy to reactivate a trial for you with Australian data.

Not a RW pilot, Just a Simmer

As a simmer, it satisfies all my objectives. Admittedly, I do not use the advanced weather features and other facilities eagerly sought by rw pilots. I am from Australia, however, I use the US Charts, primarily, California. That’s because I used “PilotEdge” which I consider a unique service. Flying thru LA Airspace is pretty daunting and being able to look ahead and identify your location and restrictions makes things that much easier. That was the first reason why I subscribed to the basic service. Another reason is the clarity of display - irrespective of the zoom level ... great for guys who are getting older faster than their aircraft taking off (me). The third reason is everything is at your fingertips - all the charts imaginable and the highlighting facilities that exist. The fourth reason is the SUPPORT service. This is really something. Ask a question and presto you have an answer. I bet some of the staff live down under. I use FF on FSX and lately on Xplane 11 in conjunction the Reality GTN. They compliment each other admittedly with quite a bit redundancy. Price wise - happy. Almost forgot - taxiing thru a complex maze in a large airport is a breeze. Five out of Five. Charles Abela

Lacking so many safety critical features

I could go on an absolute rant but I won’t. Company claims to fully support Australia but can’t even tell you LSALT’s along you’re route or display critical points. It can’t even give you correct routing from the route advisor. Nearly $600 AUD for the performance plan. An absolute waste of money when you can get nearly all the same features plus Australia focused ones from AvPlan and OzRunways for less then half the money. Don’t waste you’re time and money.
