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.

What’s New

Version 12.2.1

3D Approach Preview
•3D Preview now displays markers for each waypoint in your route, including labeled approach fixes, allowing you to better visualize every step of your approach down to the runway. 

•Preview any planned route in 3D from either the Maps or Flights views by tapping the 3D button on each page, and preview only an approach procedure by tapping the procedure’s name in the Maps view Bubble Editor and tapping “3D Procedure Preview” at the bottom of the popup menu.

•3D Preview displays each waypoint along your route using the same labeled markers as shown on the map, including speed and altitude restrictions for approach fixes that have them. The translucent “curtain” representing your route is also colored orange, magenta, or blue to indicate past, current, and future legs as you play through the route.

•3D Preview also features an interactive navlog in the top-right (or at the bottom of the screen on iPhone), allowing you to view each waypoint and the distances between them. Tap on any waypoint in the navlog to jump to that leg of the flight.

•If you manually change the flight’s altitude at specific waypoints using the Set Altitude/Speed option, 3D Preview will incorporate these changes and display them in 3D. 

•3D Preview is available with ForeFlight Performance plans.


Quick-Access Airspace Frequencies
•Easily locate frequencies for many kinds of controlled airspace by tap-holding on the map to see them listed in the Add to Route popup.

•The Airspace section of the popup shows a summary of airspace frequencies for each terminal control zone at the place where you tapped, and you can tap into the details of an airspace to reveal all of its associated frequencies. 


New Basemap Elements
•ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap includes new terrain and cultural elements such as mountain passes for the U.S. and Europe, highway labels, and additional bodies of water for improved inflight reference.

•Enable and download the High Resolution Basemap for any region in More > Downloads.

•Mountain pass icons are oriented to indicate their direction, and also include the pass name and elevation in feet. Like mountain peak markers, you can enable or disable mountain passes using the switch in Map Settings > Terrain.

•The new highway labels apply to US interstates, federal and state highways, and international motorways, and use icons that will be familiar to U.S. drivers.

Foreflight: Essential and best value in all of aviation!

FF is easily the best app for aviation. I have all others, and they are not bad, some even good (eg GP), but I will not leave home without FF. Connecting to various Garmin devices now makes it a great in flight manager as well. I am glad that emphasis is placed on pre-flight management in this update. While flying multiple aircraft in various conditions, different performances, loads, settings, it is all adjusted on the fly through a pilot centered, intuitive interface. This makes keeping track of all data pertinent to a flight, as well as briefing, filing and tracking the flight as easy as can be. As an app goes, it is not cheap like a 2.99 game, but as an essential, reliable tool it is the cheapest utility around in all of aviation. In a world where we measure things in AMU’s, this app and it’s subscription fees are nothing to cry about, and in my opinion the subscription fee is the least I can contribute to keep this ForeFlight team eager to improve and grow.

My only concern is not related to FF, but more related to the iPad and its very short life cycle before obsolescence. I am already concerned about what will happen when iPads cease to exist. For now, i am including a new iPad every other year to the price of doing business.

We use this daily!

We fly 12 to 18 hours per week with ForeFlight and Stratus 2. ForeFlight has come along way since it’s introduction with synthetic vision, excellent integration with Stratus and so much more. I did get concerned with the previous version as we started having multiple crashes on two different newer iPads daily. We do load multiple waypoint and it seemed like that might have been a factor? I always make sure my iPad has plenty of open SSD space and the newer iPads have 2GB or more RAM, so I wonder if the software rolled out too fast? We’re also very careful about not updating the OS until the all clear is given. I just hope ForeFlight’s team slows down a little on all the bells and whistles. It’s much more crucial for the product to work flawlessly versus having 3D views of airports / etc. All in all ForeFlight is the BEST aviation App on the market and their team is obviously awesome at coding. My concerns and comments here about previous crashes are only because we’re addicted to ForeFlight and never want to see it burdened with issues. The new version seems to be more stable with only the rare crash. It does open back up in seconds right were you left off. Keep up the good work. Thanks ForeFlight!

Foreflight: ruining an app one update at a time

This is the worst update foreflight has ever made. They took something so streamlined, quick, and easy as flight planning and made it cumbersome and ungainly. It's no longer simple to make a few little changes and see how it affects the flight. You have to load and create performance profiles. It's like they never even considered you might fly a different speed or TAS at different altitudes. Not to mention not everyone wants to waste time with creating a whole new profile when you just want to see how changing one number changes the flight. AND not everyone only flies one airplane! These last two updates ruined the best thing about foreflight. Now they've also ruined your map screen. All the colors have shifted and seem to be permanently stuck on night mode. No setting will change it back. Now you can barely read TAFs and metars in the daylight. On top of everything else the app crashes at least once a flight now, and if it doesn't crash you have to restart it any time it loses communication with your ADS-B unit because it won't reconnect or show any data or even the device unless you restart the app. Talk about going backwards.

Developer Response ,

Hi Wastintime - we appreciate your feedback. In ForeFlight Mobile EFB 9.1 you can adjust your aircraft’s performance profile data for a flight by typing space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor. We created this Quick Tip video tutorial that shows how: https://youtu.be/7OU3VR2ZziM Please send us an email at team@foreflight.com if we can be of any further assistance.
