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 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.

Who do you ask?

When you have an Apple iPad, Multiple Garmin devices, and Foreflight… who do you call to get a straight answer in regard to “How does this Hardware and Software connect together?”

Well, in my case I have 5th gen iPad mini running Foreflight software, a Garmin GNC 355, and I’d love to know if it’s worth the $8000 to buy a Garmin GNX 345. To be worth it, I would need to KNOW for certain that I could communicate both directions between the 355 GPS and the iPad / Foreflight AND also receive all of the ADS-B in as well as Weather from the GNX 345. Does Garmin who produces the $20K in avionics know… no they don’t, they directed me to Foreflight. Does the Avionics ship know… no they don’t, they direct me to Foreflight. When I look at Apple connecting multiple devices via multiple Bluetooth connections they say yes you can have multiple Bluetooth connections and then give an example of connecting multiple ear buds which will play a common source of music BUT that is not the same as connecting into two complex avionics with bi-directional communication on at least one of the two. Long story short, just send the question to Foreflight is my recommendation because within hours of me doing so, I had a response which said definitely that I could simultaneously connect both the GNC 355 and GTX 345 via Bluetooth to my iPad, transfer flight plans back and forth and also get the weather and ADS-B in traffic info through Foreflight…. Thank you Foreflight support team

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!

Life Saver

Early in my flying career, shortly after my first solo but before my ppl check ride I was saved by Foreflight. Flying solo, I was out practicing maneuvers and not paying any attention to the weather that was coming in behind me, and covering the airport I was to return to. When it was time to come back I pointed the nose toward my home base and before I really knew what I had done, I flew vfr into imc. No where near instrument rated I was truly lost in a sea of white. Thankfully I had Foreflight on my iPad with synthetic vision and the stratus 2 feeding attitude information. I transitioned to flying the plane like a video game watching that screen. I was able to keep the plane under control and maneuver though and out of the imc to and alternate airport and land safely. It was an absolutely terrifying event for me. I truly believe the outcome would not have been even close to this had Foreflight not been in the cockpit with me. For this I am truly thankful and fly with Foreflight on every flight. Through the years Foreflight has only increased its capabilities and has never let me down. I recommend it to everyone who flies. Thanks for a great product and saving my life.
