Build a flight plan in less than a minute, pick up your clearance with the engine running, and get “cleared as filed.” ForeFlight integrates flight plan filing so you can use one app to plan, brief, and file; we’ve streamlined workflows so you can file on mobile or web, and all your devices stay in sync.
Streamline Your Workflows
Stop switching between multiple platforms just to file a flight plan! Your flight plans and preflight briefings will automatically sync across mobile and web for easy access wherever it is most convenient.
Save Time Filing Your Flight
ForeFlight auto-populates the flight plan form with many details, so you don’t have to, including your selected route, departure time, estimated time enroute, as well as ICAO codes and performance data from your aircraft profile. We’ll also send your flight plan directly to ATC, cutting down the manual work required to file a flight plan.
Get “Cleared as Filed” with the Recommended Route
ForeFlight’s routing engine analyses many possible routes based on your detailed aircraft performance profile and time/fuel savings, while also accounting for your aircraft ceiling, preferred routes, and trending ATC cleared routes. The result is a Recommended Route that delivers more consistent ‘cleared as filed’ flight plans optimized for your aircraft. Recommended Route is available in Business Performance and Performance Plus plans.
Pre Departure Clearance
Skip the radio calls and receive your departure clearance via text and email at over 70 major U.S. airports when you register your aircraft and file with ForeFlight. We’ve also integrated in-app Digital ATIS at supported locations, saving you even more time. PDC and Digital ATIS are available in Business Performance and Performance Plus subscription plans.
A critical communication gap can occur between getting a flight briefing and takeoff, often leading to pilots missing important updates to the flight conditions and route. ForeFlight eliminates this communication gap and keeps pilots up to date with real-time push and email notifications containing important ATC messages, including flight plan acknowledgments, rejections, expected route updates, and Expected Departure Clearance Time (EDCT) messages if your flight is delayed.
In-app Flight Messages supplement ForeFlight’s Graphical Briefing by informing you of any significant developments affecting your route as they occur. These include new or updated TFRs, airport/runway closed/unsafe NOTAMs, PIREPs, SIGMETs, AIRMETs, Center Weather Advisories (CWAs), and Severe Weather Watches/Warnings.
Files in Flights
Attach files, documents, and photos directly to individual flight plans for faster inflight access and improved organization. Watch this video to learn how you can keep important flight resources organized and easily accessible at any time. Files in Flights is available with Business Performance and Performance Plus subscription plans.
Activate, Amend, Cancel, or Close Your Flight Plan
ForeFlight allows you to amend or cancel IFR flight plans and activate and close VFR flight plans directly from the app. We ensure that your flight plan requests are expedited into the Air Traffic Control system, and we also send you an email copy of each request for your records.
Multi-Continent Filing Support
ForeFlight supports filing IFR flights to and from the US and within Canada, the Caribbean, Bahamas, and Mexico, and within and between all EUROCONTROL member states and Greenland using the ICAO flight plan format.
