What’s New

Version 15.9

New “Beta” Radar Layer
• Try our new vector Radar layer, which provides less pixelated and more timely radar returns based on the same data as the main Radar layer.
• Enable this new layer in Layer Selector > Radar (Beta).
• The Radar (Beta) Layer returns data about 3.5 minutes faster compared to the original radar layer.
• Just like the current Radar layer, the Four Color option is available for the new layer in Map Settings > Four Color Radar.

Map Annotations Eraser
• Easily erase any Map Annotation without using the Clear or Undo buttons.
• While in Map Annotation mode, tap the new Eraser button to the right of the Annotation options in the top-left of the screen, then drag your finger across any annotation to remove it.
• If you accidentally erase something, tap the Undo button once or more to revert each application of the eraser.

Logbook Filters
• Find specific Logbook entries more easily with new search filters.
• Use the filter button at the top of your Logbook entry list to easily sort entries by date range, aircraft type, tail number, destination or departure airport, and much more.

Profile Line Pointer
• Locate hazards shown in Profile View on the overhead map and easily visualize the Profile Corridor along your route.
• Tap-hold within Profile View until you see a vertical line appear, then drag left or right to highlight terrain, obstacles, and airspace along your route.
• A corresponding line perpendicular to your route will also appear on the overhead map and move back and forth as you drag your finger in Profile View.
• The width of the line is equal to the width of the Profile Corridor, so the line will intersect all hazards and airspace depicted in Profile View as you drag your finger over them, changing color accordingly based on your Hazard Altitude settings.
• To disable the Profile Corridor and only view the Profile Line Pointer, go to Map Settings > Hazards > Corridor Activation and select Hide.
• The Profile Line Pointer works in both modes of Profile View (Route and Inflight), and even works when using Profile View in conjunction with the Ruler to view the terrain profile between an arbitrary pair of points.
• Profile View is included in Pro Plus subscription plans and above.

Hide Airspace Activated By NOTAM
• Declutter the Aeronautical Map by hiding all airspace activated by NOTAM.
• The new “Activation by NOTAM” setting is enabled by default to match current behavior, and you can disable it in Map Settings > Airspace > Activation by NOTAM while the Aeronautical Map is enabled to hide airspaces that are only activated by NOTAM.
• Enable the NOTAMs map layer to reveal active and soon-to-be-active airspace without cluttering the map with non-active airspace.

Runway Analysis: Missed Approach Climb Requirements
• Ensure your aircraft’s performance meets the missed approach climb requirements at your destination as part of ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis Landing page.
• While planning a flight with a Runway Analysis-enabled aircraft in the Flights view, tap the Landing button next to your destination airport, then tap the toggle for Missed Approach. 
• Specify the procedure’s minimum climb and altitude requirements to have ForeFlight account for these as it calculates your max landing weight. If your max landing weight is constrained by the climb requirements then ForeFlight will indicate this at the top of the page.
• Use the toggle next to the Minimum Climb Gradient field to switch between feet per nautical mile or gradient percentage.
• Available with ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis product for jets. Missed Approach Climb Requirements for turboprops will be coming in a future release.

New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support
• ForeFlight’s advanced Runway Analysis product for turbine aircraft now supports Textron’s Citation C700 Longitude and Dassault’s Falcon 2000.

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!

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.
