Takeoff & Landing Performance
•Ensure that you can safely take off and land with fast runway performance calculations for supported piston and turboprop aircraft.
•ForeFlight uses published runway performance data and current weather conditions to calculate the most important distance and speed metrics for both takeoff and landing, and warns you when the results exceed the selected runway’s limits.
•Quickly customize the calculation’s inputs for easy scenario planning, or change a runway’s usable length to comply with Declared Distance requirements.
•ForeFlight supports Takeoff and Landing Performance for many popular piston and turboprop aircraft, with no user setup required. Visit foreflight.com/aircraft/library to see if we support your aircraft type.
•Takeoff and Landing Performance is included in ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.
•Share planned and filed flight plans with others via Airdrop, email, or text directly from the Flights view, enabling better coordination with fellow pilots and crew.
•Sharing a flight with someone else adds a read-only version of the flight to their Flights list with a label indicating who shared it. The shared flight stays up to date with any changes you make to the original as long as an internet connection is available.
•The recipient can’t change any of the flight’s details, but they can view its Navlog and Briefing, load the flight onto the Maps view using the Send To button, or create a copy of the flight that they can edit on their device.
•ForeFlight will now automatically suggest pictures and screenshots you took during a flight with that flight’s logbook entry, greatly simplifying the task of adding photos to a new entry.
•When ForeFlight creates a draft logbook entry from a new track log, photos and screenshots that you took during the flight appear in the draft entry as suggestions, allowing you to select the ones you want to keep and discard the rest.
•Logbook also now supports night vision goggles (NVG) currency tracking for both rotorcraft and airplane pilots, with separate currency trackers for NVG operations with and without passengers.
•The new Night Vision Goggles section of each logbook entry allows you to log NVG time and number of NVG operations, and add an NVG Proficiency tag to the entry after a checkride.
•The Flights view’s detailed Navlog now includes more information and capabilities to help you better prepare for every flight and reference planned information during the flight.
•List of updates:
◦Altitude added next to the selected cruise profile in the upper left header.
◦Altitude added after the route in the summary section.
◦Added "MAG" to clarify that HDG and CRS are magnetic in the waypoint list.
◦Added PIC to the top of the Summary & Times table.
◦(Performance plans only) Added average fuel flow per hour in the Summary & Times table.
◦Added "Signature" row to the notes section.
◦Airport details table moved to below the Summary & Times table.
◦Added airport diagrams for departure and destination airports, when available.
Unsupported SID/STAR Legs Use Dotted Route Line
•ForeFlight will now use a dotted line style for any leg of a SID or STAR that it can’t properly depict in the displayed route, including track, course, or heading from a fix to an altitude, track from a fix for a certain distance, course or heading to a radial or intercept, arc to a fix, etc.
•These route style changes replace the warning dialog that previously advised you to check the plate/chart for full info when adding unsupported legs to a route.
Ratings and Reviews
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of any further assistance.
