Mogas Fuel Prices
Find pricing and availability of Mogas fuel in Airports > FBOs or by tapping an FBO icon on a plate or the map.
Then tap the FBO to see more details on fuel options, including self-service and full-service pricing. Mogas fuel prices can currently only be updated in ForeFlight by the FBO manager, so please contact the FBO if you find that prices listed in ForeFlight do not match actual prices.
Recent/Favorite Routes Filter
Quickly search your Favorite and Recent Routes by entering any airport or waypoint identifier to show routes containing it.
Start by tapping the Routes button in the Maps toolbar.
Tap the search bar at the top and enter any airport, airway, VOR, or waypoint identifier to show routes containing it, then tap any result to load the route on the map.
Takeoff & Landing Summary
Generate and save a detailed summary of takeoff and landing performance calculations for supported piston and single engine turboprop aircraft, including runway conditions, climb analysis, and more.
Once you finalize your flight plan with a supported aircraft selected, ensure you have a runway selected for both takeoff and landing in the Flights view.
Next, tap Summary in the top right of either the Takeoff or Landing views.
You can then tap the Send to Button to attach the summary to the flight’s Files, print it, or share it with others.
Our June release simplifies the app’s Download Settings, adds support for Custom Waypoint elevations, and more.
Simplified Download Settings
Easily configure your downloads more quickly with a new paradigm that groups all Data/Chart selections and Region selections in separate menus in More > Downloads. This change will not affect your existing downloads or download settings.
Select the types of charts and data you want to download in the Data Settings menu, as well as select High Resolution Basemap and Terrain downloads for additional regions beyond your subscription’s default. The selections you make here will apply to all regions selected in Region Settings, although not all chart/data types are available for all regions.
Region Settings let you select which regions the selections you made in the Data/Chart Settings will apply to. All regions supported by ForeFlight have a drop-down containing sub-regions within that region.
Custom Waypoint Elevation
Specify elevations for your User Waypoints and custom waypoints imported via Content Packs to plan routes to and from them like you would airports, with accurate climb/descent calculations and depictions in Profile View.
You can add an elevation to a User Waypoint in More > Custom Content > User Waypoints.
Tap the waypoint you would like to edit, tap the Elevation field to input the number, and then tap Save.
Another way to edit a waypoint’s elevation is by directly tapping it on the Maps view, then tapping Edit. Specify the elevation and tap Save as before.
Lastly, you can specify elevations in KML or CSV waypoint lists you import as part of the “navdata” sub-folder in a Content Pack. While standalone CSV files also support elevations, standalone KML files do not, so they must be imported as part of a Content Pack.
For a .csv file, simply add a column for elevation and express each value in meters (ForeFlight will automatically convert them to feet upon import). While the column names in a .csv file don’t matter, their order does. Column A is the waypoint ID or name, column B is the description, column C is latitude, column D is longitude, and column E is for elevation.
NOTE: To import a CSV file as user waypoints, it must be named user_waypoints.csv.
For .kml files, include your waypoint elevation (in meters) in the optional altitude component of the coordinates tuple. This value often defaults to 0, so ForeFlight will only recognize non-zero values (positive or negative) as elevations.
Bearing and Track Orientation Setting
Display bearing and track measurements for the Ruler, Synthetic Vision, and relevant Cockpit Instruments using either Magnetic or True North.
You can access this feature in More > Settings.
Then tap Units/Time to get to Bearing and Track Instruments.
New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support
ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis product now supports Bombardier’s Global 7500 and Dassault’s Falcon 900EX, EX EASy, DX and LX, and Textron 560 Citation XLS. Built-in Weight & Balance templates and Takeoff Trim calculations are also supported for the Bombardier and Dassault aircraft.
Runway Analysis is available for a growing list of aircraft types as an add-on to ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.
Sentry Plus is the latest addition to ForeFlight’s ADS-B product suite, offering new features such as longer battery life, a high-performance flight data recorder, g-Load meter, support for FLARM traffic, and much more.
Developed in collaboration with and manufactured by Montana-based avionics company uAvionix, Sentry Plus builds on the award-winning capabilities of prior devices in the Sentry family with powerful new features and industry-leading battery life at a competitive price of US$799, and is available for purchase from Sporty’s Pilot Shop in the United States and SkyFox and CAE Aviation in Europe.
“We continue to expand the Sentry family of affordable ADS-B products with the most advanced portable receiver yet,” said Tim Schuetze, ForeFlight President. “Sentry Plus combines the best of previous devices with new innovations to make flying and logging even easier — for every kind of pilot. We’re proud to offer the only device on the market combining so many powerful features in such a compact and affordable device.”
Sentry Plus integrates all the capabilities of prior Sentry devices, including ADS-B In weather and traffic, WAAS GPS, carbon monoxide (CO) monitoring and alerting, AHRS pitch and bank, and more, with powerful new features in an innovative and compact design.
“The Sentry product line has proven to be a literal life-saver for many pilots, both as a weather and traffic awareness tool, and as a carbon monoxide monitor.” said Christian Ramsey, uAvionix President. “The Sentry Plus’ evolution represents direct customer feedback for expanded capabilities and life saving features. The partnership between ForeFlight and uAvionix continues to drive innovation that results in amazing products for our pilot community.”
Its most prominent feature, a 1.3” OLED screen, displays connection information and live flight metrics, including a new g-Load meter to monitor and record inflight acceleration. Its contoured, wallet-sized case maximizes GPS and ADS-B antenna reception, while boasting a record-breaking 18+ hour battery life for reliable all-day operation.
Sentry Plus also introduces a new high-performance flight data recorder to automatically record, save, and transfer detailed track logs to ForeFlight Mobile in seconds for postflight review and logging. Add to this an Auto Power On/Off setting while connected to ship power, and Sentry Plus is capable of down-to-the-minute Hobbs time tracking to streamline the flight logging process even further.
And in a first for portable receivers, Sentry Plus’s antennas are optimized for concurrent UAT and European FLARM reception, enabling pilots in Europe to see and avoid nearby traffic using this popular short-range position reporting standard. A FLARM decoding license is required to receive and display FLARM traffic and can be purchased as part of a ForeFlight subscription at foreflight.com/buy.
FULL FEATURE LIST
Small Case, Big Battery With an industry-leading 18 hour battery life in a sturdy and lightweight case, Sentry Plus is ready to support you on the longest hauls.
OLED Data Display A first-of-a-kind OLED data display provides connection and device status, plus live flight metrics including g-load, GPS accuracy, and more.
High-Performance Track Logging Never lose a flight with automatic on-device track logging and seamless importing to ForeFlight for postflight review, plus down-to-the-minute Hobbs time logging when connected to onboard power.
AHRS for Backup Attitude + g-Load Sentry Plus’s Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) provides a real-time depiction of your aircraft’s pitch and bank in ForeFlight. Flexible calibration options allow you to get accurate AHRS data no matter where you mount Sentry in your aircraft. Plus, deepen your debrief in Track Log Review with the new g-Load layer for direct comparisons with other metrics like pitch, bank, speed, and altitude.
Carbon Monoxide Monitor Just like its predecessor, Sentry Plus provides a built-in carbon monoxide sensor and alerting system, with an audio and in-app alert when CO concentration reaches hazardous levels. The LED indicator also provides a visual indication of CO levels.
ADS-B Weather (limited to US and other supported regions) Sentry Plus delivers subscription-free FIS-B weather & data. Display animated regional and CONUS NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, AIR/SIGMETs, PIREPs, textual winds and temps aloft, TFRs, NOTAMs, and SUA information on ForeFlight Mobile.
ADS-B + FLARM Traffic Get help in “seeing and avoiding” with dynamic traffic display in ForeFlight from ADS-B Out equipped aircraft. Additionally, Sentry Plus’s antennas are optimized for European FLARM reception in addition to ADS-B, allowing glider pilots and others in Europe to use their preferred traffic network (requires the purchase of a FLARM license via foreflight.com/buy to enable).
High-Precision GPS Pilotage meets the 21st century with Sentry Plus’s highly-accurate WAAS GPS providing down-to-the-meter position data. See your aircraft position on ForeFlight’s moving map display and innovative Plates on Map feature. View a variety of inflight data, including ground speed, altitude, ETE, distance to destination, and more.
Wi-Fi Client Support No need to choose between Sentry Plus and your existing cockpit Wi-Fi solution with support for Wi-Fi client connections. Setup is quick and easy thanks to the OLED display, and Sentry Plus will automatically connect to known client Wi-Fi networks for a set-it-and-forget-it solution.

ForeFlight is loaded with powerful features to help you plan and fly with everything you need at your fingertips. Even though many of its most useful features have been available for years, we frequently encounter customers at shows like EAA AirVenture who have never heard of them.
So in the interest of maximizing ForeFlight’s value to your own flying, let’s dive deeper into some of those useful features so you can make the most of them. All the features mentioned below are included in all ForeFlight subscription plans, and you can learn more about any of them in our Pilot’s Guide, Support Center, and Video Library.
Augment other charts like the sectional with dynamic and tappable map elements and quick toggles for easy decluttering. ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap and Terrain also provide detailed ground references with no other charts enabled.
Smooth Decluttering As you zoom in and out, the Aeronautical Map automatically shows and hides elements.
Details Are Just A TapAway Simply tap on any Aeronautical Map element to view detailed information about it, even with other charts enabled.
Quick Filters Easily declutter the map using these toggles for different map elements.
Not seeing these? Make sure the Aeronautical layer is enabled and check the Quick Filters toggle in Map Settings.
Embedded Airport Diagrams Zoom in to view airport diagrams with labeled runways and taxiways and tappable hotspots and FBO markers.
More Options in Map Settings Customize the map further with different airport types, highlight or hide airspace, switch between IFR High/Low, and more from the Map Settings menu.
The Map Settings menu lets you further customize the Aeronautical Map as well as access many other helpful tools and features. While the main Settings view in More > Settings offers a few additional map-specific settings, this menu is quickly accessible right from the map for adjusting your most frequently-used settings and features.
To access Map Settings, tap the gear button at the top of the Maps view.
Starting at the top of the menu, you can quickly change your screen brightness as well as invert the chart colors for the VFR Sectional, IFR High/Low Enroute charts, and others that you can access from the Layer Selector. Instead of a “true” inversion that affects every color, this “smart” inversion flips white and black while keeping other colors the same so familiar chart elements are still recognizable.
In the ForeFlight Map section of the menu you can customize the Terrain and Basemap layers visible with only the Aeronautical Map enabled, as well as toggle global Place Labels that will appear on top of any chart or map.
The next section (only visible if the Aeronautical Map is enabled) lets you dive into the details of the types of map elements shown as part of the Aeronautical layer. Toggle smaller airport types like private airports, heliports, seaplane bases, etc.; customize airspace types, hide airspace above a specified altitude, and dim the brightness of airspace outside your route with Auto Highlight; and toggle between High and Low IFR airways, waypoints, navaids, ARTCC frequency “postage stamps”, and more. This is also where you can show or hide the Quick Filters for the Aeronautical Map.
Auto Center Mode lets you choose from three options for orienting the map during a flight:
North Up – The map is always oriented with North at the top and your ownship centered.
Track Up Centered – The map rotates as you turn so your current GPS track is always pointing up, with your ownship centered on the screen.
Track Up Forward – Same as Track Up Centered, but your ownship is placed in the bottom third of the screen to show more of the map in front of you and less behind you.
With Auto-Center enabled (the button in the far upper-right corner of the screen) you can toggle between North Up and whichever Track Up setting you last selected without opening the Map Settings menu by tapping the small circle in the top-right corner of the map, which shows either “N” or a compass to indicate the current mode.
While often overlooked, the Map Overlays section contains some of the most powerful inflight features outside of the Layer Selector. Spend some time toggling these on and off to fully understand how they can fit into your inflight workflow – every minute will be worth it!
Route Labels Show or hide the labels attached to all the elements in your route (airports, waypoints, lat/long coordinates, User Waypoints, etc.).
Extended Centerlines Show or hide labeled runway extensions for all airports in your route. The length of these extensions are proportional to the runway length, and you can tap on any of the runway labels to view that runway’s details.
Distance Rings Show or hide a set of three concentric rings around your ownship on the map that correlate to distance or time (at your present groundspeed). Tap on the labels for any of the rings to change how their size is determined.
Track Vector Show or hide a line extending in front of your ownship indicating your direction and speed of flight. Visit More > Settings > Track Vector Length to change how the line’s length is determined, such as distance vs flight time.
Glide Advisor Uses your aircraft’s glide ratio, current GPS altitude, surrounding terrain, and winds aloft to present a ring showing your glide range.
Breadcrumbs A thin green line indicates your aircraft’s path since takeoff. Breadcrumbs automatically activate on takeoff and end when you land. You can set how long the breadcrumbs remain on the map before disappearing after a flight in More > Settings > Breadcrumbs Clear After.
Map Legend Show or hide a legend at the bottom of the Maps view to interpret the colors of any currently-selected weather layer. when the following weather layers are selected.
Marked Positions Show or hide a button on the left side of the Maps view which when tapped will drop a green position marker at your current location. You can then review and export these markers as part of the flight’s Track Log or in the Flights view. Available with a Performance Plus subscription plan.
Map Annotations Show or Hide the Annotations button on the left side of the Maps view, and tap this to enter Annotation mode. Use the Annotation toolbar along the top of the map to set details like color, line thickness, and undo annotations or clear the map.
Track Log Record Button Displays a REC button on the left side of the Maps view for manually starting and stopping Track Logs. When recording, the length of the current Track Log appears below the button.
Four Color Radar Only available when one of the Radar layers is enabled. Toggle this selection on the menu to change the radar depiction from the high resolution radar mosaic to a lower resolution, four-color mosaic.
Internet Radar Coverage Only available when one of the Radar layers is enabled. Displays the area of available radar coverage while connected to the Internet. Areas with no coverage show hash marks and a “Radar not available” label.
Map Touch Action Only available when a raster chart (e.g. Sectional, IFR Enroute, etc.) is enabled. Show or hide legends and borders by selecting whether or not the charts are brought to the front with or without legends.
The Multiple Selections setting under Layer Selector keeps the Layer Selector open after toggling any layer so you can toggle multiple layers quickly without reopening the Layer Selector for every one. Simply tap the Layer Selector button itself or elsewhere on the screen to close it.
Opacity Sliders for multiple weather layers and any plate or airport diagram overlaid on the map appear at the bottom of the Map Settings menu when these are active.
Finally, when connected to any supported external device like a Sentry Plus, Garmin Connext Flight Stream, Bad Elf GPS, etc., you can quickly access the device’s status and settings page (the same as you would find in More > Devices) at the very bottom of the Map Settings menu.
