We are thrilled to deliver ForeFlight Logbook in our final release of the year. In addition, insightful Area Forecast Discussions are now built-in to airport weather views.
Simplicity, Utility, and Security with ForeFlight Logbook
Logbook is seamlessly integrated into the ForeFlight app, making it easy for pilots to manually and automatically log flights, track hours, review currency, record certificates and ratings, receive electronic instructor endorsements, and generate experience reports. In addition, your Logbook data is automatically and securely stored in the ForeFlight Cloud. ForeFlight’s servers regularly backup the logbook when changes or additions are made, delivering a new level of security and assurance for digital pilot logbook data. ForeFlight’s Sync platform seamlessly synchronizes your logbook information across all of the devices on your account.
Logbook is available as part of our new Basic Plus and Pro Plus plans or as an add-on to your existing plan, as well as an optional add-on to Business Pro multi-pilot plans. Learn more about Logbook at foreflight.com/logbook.
Get the Whole Weather Story with Area Forecast Discussions
As Scott Dennstaedt says in his blog article on the topic, with ForeFlight 7.5 “you’ll have the ability to peer into the minds of forecasters.” Well, close. You can now access Area Forecast Discussions (AFDs) in ForeFlight.
Area Forecast Discussions are now provided for all US airports with their associated TAFs. These are issued by forecasters at the National Weather Service and provide important insights into forecast conditions, acting as a complement and explanation for recently issued TAFs.
The AFDs can be found in ForeFlight by tapping on a station in the Maps view, then tap Forecast in the pop-over. Also in the Airport view, tap the Weather tab then Forecast Discussion.
Check out Scott’s article where he walks through how AFDs can be routinely used in your flight planning. Do you know the size of the terminal area that is considered when a forecaster issues a TAF? Read Getting Into The Forecaster’s Head to find out.
New Subscription Plans Bring Added Features and Value
Coupled with the introduction of Logbook, we are also announcing new subscription plans for individual pilots that are designed to give you even more value from your ForeFlight experience. Logbook is an essential part of your flight bag and so we made it a standard feature in both of the new plans.
The new Basic Plus plan includes everything in the current Basic plan plus Logbook and Weight & Balance for $99.99/year.
The new Pro Plus plan includes everything in the current Pro plan plus Logbook and Synthetic Vision for $199.99/year.
If you are pleased with the plan you have now, you can still purchase or renew the existing Basic and Pro plans. You can manage this by logging in to foreflight.com/manage with your ForeFlight app credentials or by using our build your own plan link on foreflight.com/pricing.
