Operational Note Flags and more in ForeFlight 14.9

Our October release includes Operational Note Flags, Multi-Source Radar Layer Support, expanded Runway Analysis support, and UL 91/96 Fuel Prices.

Easily find and review Operational Notes affecting your flight with the help of tappable flags placed along your route and numbered sequentially. 

Once you have added your route in the FPL editor, you can tap any flag along your route to view the operational notes for that airspace or aeronautical element and see it highlighted in green.

Operational Note Flags for closely-spaced or overlapping aeronautical elements may be combined into a single flag that indicates the range of flags contained in it using hyphenated numbers, e.g. “8-10”. Once you tap the range of flags you want to view, you can select one to see the full details.

Operational Notes Flags are enabled by default, but you can toggle them off and on using the “Operational Notes” setting switch in the Map Settings menu under Map Overlays.

Operational Note Flags are available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

Multi-Source Radar Layer Support

While connected to one or more external devices that provide datalink weather, such as ADS-B or Sirius XM, manually select from all available Radar sources to display any one of them on the map. 

To start, connect to your external device(s), then tap the Maps View Layer Selector to view all available radar layers. The type of radar or source of the layer appears in parenthesis–e.g., Radar (XM Base). Tap on any Radar layer to display it on the map.

Additionally, if an internet-based radar layer is selected (either Composite or Lowest-Tilt), ForeFlight will automatically switch to any available datalink radar layers (ADS-B or SiriusXM) when the internet radar data expires to ensure you are looking at the latest weather data.

To view all your connected devices, go to More > Devices, or you can view them at the bottom of the Map Settings menu.

New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support

ForeFlight’s advanced Runway Analysis product for turbine aircraft now supports the following aircraft: 

  • Dassault Falcon 2000EX/EX EASy/DX/LX
  • Daher TBM 960

UL 91/96 Fuel Prices

Find pricing and availability of UL 91/96 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. UL 91/96 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.
