Winds Aloft Forecasts in Graphical Briefing

The ForeFlight Graphical Briefing has a new section under the Forecasts heading: Winds Aloft. This section was added to provide pilots with information about the forecasted winds aloft along their route of flight, an important component of any preflight weather briefing.

Winds aloft forecasts along your route are organized in tables

The section includes forecasts for winds at 6 hour, 12 hour, and 24 hour periods, each contained in its own neatly organized table showing weather stations IDs along your route on the left, and altitudes along the top. Forecasts are provided for altitudes ranging from 3,000 to 53,000 feet, and a toggle switch at the top of the page allows you to restrict the altitudes shown to only those within 4,000 feet of your filed altitude, giving you quick access to the most relevant forecasts for your particular flight. In addition, the column showing winds aloft at your filed altitude is highlighted blue in each table.

You can enable ForeFlight Graphical Briefing at any time by navigating to More > Settings, scrolling down the File & Brief section, and tapping ForeFlight Briefing so the slider turns blue.
