Additional Aeronautical Map Waypoints, Commercial Progress Reports, and more in ForeFlight 12.8

ForeFlight 12.8 includes additional Aeronautical Map Waypoints, Commercial Progress Reports in Logbook, the ability to designate Technically Advanced Aircraft in Logbook, and more.

Additional Aeronautical Map Waypoints

ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map now displays many types of waypoints not associated with any airway, including off-route intersections, oceanic waypoints, and others.

The new waypoints are included in both the High and Low Airspace layers in Map Settings (cog button in the Maps View) > Airways, and appear when either layer is enabled.

Disabling all airways from the Map Settings menu or the Quick Toggle bar on the left will also hide all off-airway waypoints.

Commercial Progress Report in Logbook

Track your progress towards your Commercial ASEL checkride with this auto-filled PDF report based on the FAA’s requirements outlined in FAR Part 61.

ForeFlight uses details from your logged flights in different aircraft to indicate your progress in each of the requirements, adding a green check mark to each once you complete it. Tap the Send To button while viewing the report to email or print it. Access the new report in Logbook > Reports.

TAA Setting for Logbook Aircraft

Designate “Technically Advanced Aircraft” in ForeFlight’s Logbook to log time in these aircraft in accordance with the FAA’s newly-widened definition. Flights in a TAA-designated aircraft may be logged in lieu of, or in combination with, flights in a complex or turbine-powered airplane to satisfy certain training requirements.

Access the TAA switch for any aircraft in Logbook > Aircraft. Generate a Commercial Progress report in Logbook to view your logged TAA hours.
