Global Jeppesen Charts Now Available on ForeFlight

Jeppesen charts are here!  And we are proud to say that our strategic alliance with Jeppesen continues to deliver more value for our customers. Here’s the rest of our media release on this exciting announcement:

Jeppesen’s world-class library of standard chart coverages are now available as an option with the current release of ForeFlight Mobile, making it the premier all-in-one mobile solution for planning, briefing, filing, flying, and logging flights across aviation. Customers can purchase Jeppesen charts directly on foreflight.com in a matter of seconds. They can choose from thirteen coverages that span the globe and include departure, arrival, and terminal procedures, airport charts, and Jeppesen Airway Manuals.

“We’re thrilled about our partnership with Jeppesen and finally being able to deliver their best-in-class charts to our customers,” said Tyson Weihs, co-founder and CEO of ForeFlight. “This integration offers aviators the most powerful combination of Jeppesen charts and EFB functionality available on the market today.”

Jeppesen charts are now seamlessly integrated into ForeFlight’s innovative plates on map feature that allows pilots to view their aircraft position on geo-referenced departures, arrival, or approach plates along with weather overlays in one seamless moving map view. Jeppesen charts are also enabled for color inversion, reducing screen glare when flying at night. For business customers, account administrators can easily manage how Jeppesen coverages are distributed to, swapped among users, and shared across devices. Jeppesen charts combined with ForeFlight’s next-generation performance flight planning capabilities provides a compelling solution for operators and pilots worldwide.

ForeFlight individual subscribers can link their existing Jeppesen license in ForeFlight Mobile or purchase standard worldwide Jeppesen charts for use inside the app through a simple e-commerce experience on foreflight.com. ForeFlight business aviation customers can purchase chart coverages through Jeppesen and then link them to their ForeFlight subscription for use inside the ForeFlight Mobile app. Customers can access Jeppesen charts in the app in the same, familiar way they reference government charts.

With this latest release of ForeFlight, Jeppesen’s high-quality NavData® also comes standard in every plan, improving data consistency between the mobile device and installed avionics, enhancing features like data-driven Aeronautical Maps (available in Plus plans), and expanding Procedure Advisor for all customers to airports around the world. Customers should take note that the Jeppesen NavData® on ForeFlight is separate from Jeppesen NavData® for installed avionics, which requires a separate subscription from Jeppesen.

Global high-resolution terrain and obstacle data, powered by Jeppesen, already comes standard in every ForeFlight subscription plan, making ForeFlight’s hazard awareness features better than ever. Customers flying with advanced features like Synthetic Vision, Hazard Advisor, and Profile View now see a clear picture of terrain and obstacle hazards anywhere in the world.

A follow-on release later this summer will bring the display of Jeppesen’s data-driven IFR Enroute charts, which is automatically included for subscribers who have purchased or linked Jeppesen charts on ForeFlight.

In addition to the integration of Jeppesen charts into ForeFlight Mobile, the strategic alliance between the two companies also spans the commercial airline market and users of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro, the leading EFB solution for airlines and large-scale operators. Jeppesen and ForeFlight are working together on a next-generation release of FliteDeck Pro for both iOS and Windows that will deliver a combination of the familiar capabilities in FliteDeck Pro and significant features and functionality from ForeFlight Mobile.

Fly Fast? Plan Faster with ForeFlight’s New High-Performance Planning Solution

ForeFlight 9.1, now available on the App Store, introduces our next-generation high-performance flight planning, a new Flights interface that replaces the File & Brief view and streamlines the flight planning and filing workflow, Jeppesen’s global high-resolution terrain and obstacle data for everyone, and more.

Introducing ForeFlight Performance Planning 

ForeFlight Performance is a new tier of service that provides best-in-class flight planning and global wind-optimized autorouting capabilities for high-performance aircraft. ForeFlight Performance includes a library of aircraft with performance profiles to calculate accurate flight time and fuel burn, a sophisticated flight planning engine that generates global wind-optimized routes, and a user-friendly interface that simplifies the planning workflow.

The core of ForeFlight’s new performance planning capabilities consists of an extensive library of aircraft with detailed performance profiles, a sophisticated global routing engine powered by ForeFlight’s AviationCloud technology, and redesigned map and form-based flight planning interfaces designed for maximum efficiency.

ForeFlight’s in-house performance team built the aircraft performance profiles from the manufacturer’s climb, cruise, and descent performance data. The performance models are defined for multiple altitudes, weights, and temperatures, allowing the planning engine to produce highly accurate speed and fuel flow data for all conditions. ForeFlight’s library includes hundreds of profiles for the most popular piston and turbine aircraft from Bombardier, Cessna, Cirrus, Daher-Socata, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream, Hawker-Beechcraft, Pilatus, Piper, and more.ForeFlight Performance

Setting up an aircraft in ForeFlight with performance profiles can be done in less than a minute. Simply search for and select your aircraft model, confirm the basic weight and fuel data, and add a tail number. This saves you time as all of the complex performance data and multiple cruise profiles from the aircraft manual are pre-built and automatically loaded for you with a click on the web or a tap on the iPad.

You will also see a newly designed Flights view that replaces the File & Brief view. Flights simplifies and consolidates the planning workflow into a single form-based view. In addition to route information, the new planning form has neatly-organized sections for payload and fuel planning. ForeFlight automatically runs structural weight limit checks with every adjustment to the plan and provides visual alerts when an issue is detected, helping to eliminate an overweight takeoff or landing scenario.

ForeFlight Performance gives you the ability to select from multiple fuel policies, allowing the flexibility to calculate block fuel using a desired fuel strategy, a capability especially important for flight departments that have specific fuel policies pilots must follow. For example, if an operator requires that the aircraft complete a flight with 2000 pounds of fuel, then selecting the Landing Fuel Policy quickly calculates the block fuel amount to load for that desired outcome.

The form-based workflow of the Flights view integrates Route Advisor and Altitude Advisor, two powerful decision-making tools previously accessed only on the Maps view. Powered by the AviationCloud advanced flight planning engine, Route Advisor analyzes current and forecasted wind and temperature data, aircraft performance capabilities, and recently cleared routes to generate a comprehensive list of valid wind-optimized route options for any two airports in the world, even for airports without previously flown or preferred routes.

ForeFlight calculates performance results for each route and displays the estimated flight time, distance, and fuel burn alongside each route string allowing for quick comparisons between different routes. The AviationCloud autoroute tops the list and typically offers the most optimal route based on the current data.

Recently-cleared ATC routes are listed next, showing the departure time of the most recent flight cleared for that route (which will often be in the future for frequently filed routes), the number of times that route was cleared by ATC in the past year, and the type of aircraft and altitude range for which the route was cleared. These details give pilots added confidence in the expectation for a smooth clearance delivery experience.

ForeFlight developers anticipated real-world scenarios to help guide the product design and feature set. Pilots are often confronted with the need to explore the impact of taking more or less fuel, last minute aircraft changes due to maintenance, or a situation where more passengers than expected arrive at the airport. ForeFlight Performance enables pilots to quickly evaluate what-if scenarios with just a few taps. If any adjustments are made in the fuel and payload fields or a different aircraft is selected, ForeFlight automatically recalculates weight, altitude, and fuel requirements in a matter of seconds. In addition, the planning engine works offline as well, giving pilots the flexibility to recompute a route even when they are out of range of an internet connection.

The Flights interface also features easy access to a detailed printable navlog for inflight reference, a link to a comprehensive briefing, and a tab for messages from ATC and other notifications pertaining to the flight. Once planning is complete, it’s a single tap to the filing form, which is nearly complete based on the information already provided.

The user-friendly interface extends from ForeFlight Mobile to the web where the Flights tab on the web not only mirrors the functionality and workflow of the mobile app, but also displays an adjacent map of the route that stays in perfect sync with any changes made to the form. ForeFlight Sync ensures that all planning activity automatically syncs between mobile devices and the web.

ForeFlight Performance will help save pilots time and fuel not only through higher fidelity performance data and advanced route optimization. The Performance tier also integrates JetFuelX contract fuel prices directly into the app. JetFuelX is a web-based service that helps customers quickly determine which locations on and around their route of flight are offering the best prices based on their personal contracted rates. With JetFuelX prices displayed on the map, subscribers to ForeFlight Performance can easily compare prices from multiple fuel card memberships and pinpoint the best fuel stop location. Anyone can sign up for a free JetFuelX account at jetfuelx.com and immediately start saving on jet fuel purchases.

The new high-performance planning features are part of ForeFlight’s two new subscription plans: Performance Plus for individuals and Business Performance for multi-pilot flight departments.

The single user Performance Plus Plan is priced at $299.99 USD per year and the multi-user Business Performance Plan starts at $300 per year per license. For plan comparisons, visit foreflight.com/pricing.

New Flights Interface Streamlines Planning, Briefing, & Filing Workflow

All customers will see a newly designed Flights view that replaces the File & Brief view and simplifies the flight planning workflow into a single neatly-organized, form-based page. You can build your route, file the flight plan, generate a graphical weather briefing, and print a detailed navlog to reference during flight. Customers with Pro and Pro Plus plans will also receive flight notification messages here. Flights includes buttons for Route Advisor and Altitude Advisor, two powerful decision-making tools previously accessed only on the Maps Route Editor view. The new flight plan summary strip pinned to the top of the Flights view keeps route distance, flight time, fuel burn, and route wind component information front and center.

The Flights interface extends from ForeFlight Mobile to the web where the Flights tab on the web mirrors the functionality and workflow of the mobile app. Planning activity automatically syncs between mobile devices and the web.

Professional-Grade, Printable Navlog

From the Flights view, tap on the new Navlog button to generate and print or email a detailed Navlog that includes flight and fuel summary information, TOC, TOD, synthetic waypoints along track, a wind and temperature aloft table for quick reference, and more. Printable navlog is available for all customers.

6 Reasons To Go Digital with ForeFlight’s Integrated Logbook

In the May/June 2016 issue of the FAA Safety Briefing, an article by Susan Parson caught our eye. In “eLogbook Logistics: Considerations for Moving from Paper Log to Digital Login” Susan reviews the present state of electronic pilot logbooks and suggests some important things to consider when making the switch from paper. Her suggestions include common sense issues like data security and ease of use, but also more nuanced considerations such as the sentimental value of a logbook.

Below are six ways that ForeFlight’s digital pilot logbook meets (and exceeds!) some of the considerations that Susan outlines:

Generic endorsement text can be selected from a list.Electronic signatures: ForeFlight Logbook allows flight instructors to sign off on students’ flights, and also provides a wide range of pre-written endorsements for instructors to select and sign. Adding a signature locks the entry or endorsement from editing by the student – an important security benefit over paper logbooks.

Easy data entry: Entering flight data line by line would be easy enough in Logbook, which has “smart” tools and options that help you conserve keystrokes – but thanks to its integration with Track Logs, you don’t even have to do that! Fields like departure and destination airports, flight time, and distance are auto-filled based on the recorded Track Log, allowing you to simply review and approve the new entry.

Generating reports: Susan mentions the pain of sifting through line after line of paper entries gathering data for a Form 8710 Application for Airman’s Certificate or Rating – a task that takes only a few taps in ForeFlight Logbook. The app compiles and exports all the data needed for a Form 8710 in exactly the layout provided on the official form. General pilot experience reports for different date ranges can also be generated and exported to email or print.

Generate filled 8710 reports and export the to email or print

Secure backup and export: As part of the company’s cloud data ecosystem, Logbook is automatically backed up to ForeFlight’s secure servers, keeping your flight data safe. Furthermore, you can export your data to a CSV file from ForeFlight Web, allowing you to keep your own backup on a computer or in another cloud account, as Susan does.

Accessibility: A second benefit of saving your logbook in the ForeFlight Cloud is being able to access it anywhere, anytime, from any of your iOS devices with ForeFlight installed. Should you find yourself without access to the app itself, you can also access your data in ForeFlight Web, which supports nearly every modern web browser.

Preserve memories: A logbook’s ability to evoke rich and powerful memories is arguably as valuable to a pilot as its primary role of logging flights. ForeFlight Logbook strives to maintain this ability with photo attachments. You can add unlimited photos to flight entries, aircraft profiles, certificates, and endorsements, all of which are saved with the rest of your data in the ForeFlight Cloud, and are accessible from any of your devices.

Record your flights with photo memories

We thank Susan for her thoughtful and informative article. We’ll continue to raise the bar with ForeFlight Logbook to make flight logging more efficient and more enjoyable for pilots. You can learn more about ForeFlight Logbook here.

Expanded Airport Information in ForeFlight Web

We’ve recently added some new features to ForeFlight Web that enhance its usefulness for flight planning. The airport popup now closely mirrors the airport popup in the ForeFlight Mobile Maps view, including tabs along the bottom for general airport information, the current METAR, forecast products, and winds aloft.

Tap on a weather marker to access diverse information about an airport

Use the buttons along the bottom of the popup to view information about an airport, forecasts, and winds aloft.

From the Info tab you can find lists of frequencies, runway information (including wind components), and links to taxi charts and procedure plates that can be viewed directly in your browser. Links to outside resources like Google Maps and flight tracking through FlightAware are also available. The forecast tab includes TAFs, MOS, and recent area forecast discussions. All this information can be accessed simply by clicking on a weather overlay marker for an airport, or by searching for that airport in the Search bar.

The airport popup also includes an Add to Route button for easy “click planning”. With departure and destination points entered into your Navlog, you can then click on the route line to rubber-band it to intermediate waypoints and airports, just like touch planning in the ForeFlight app.

Click and drag your route line to add intermediate airports and waypoints

Intermediate waypoints can be added to your route just like in the app – drag your route line to the desired location, then drop it and select an item from the list.

After building your route on ForeFlight web, it automatically syncs to the app on your iPad and iPhone. You can find the route in ForeFlight Mobile in the Recent routes list, or in Favorites if you saved the route.
