A Closer Look at Takeoff & Landing Performance

ForeFlight 11.4 brings an exciting and safety-enhancing feature to Performance Plus subscribers: Takeoff & Landing Performance calculations for piston and single-engine turboprop aircraft. Give our tutorial video a watch and then read on for more details.

Why Takeoff and Landing Performance?

Calculating one’s takeoff and landing performance has always been a task that makes sense to do, but is often not carried out for various reasons. The task typically requires interpolating on tabular data or using graphical runaround charts, or “spaghetti charts”, to find a list of performance parameters for the given conditions. While useful in determining takeoff and landing distances, climb performance, and other critical aircraft performance parameters, the use of such tables and charts are less than appealing to many pilots. It’s also surprisingly easy for human error to sneak into the multi-step process of determining takeoff ground roll or total distance, possibly resulting in a less than safe operation.

Why not let software handle these error-prone tasks accurately, quickly and in a repeatable fashion?

A Fully Integrated Flight Planning Solution

ForeFlight is improving safety of flight by providing a fully integrated takeoff and landing performance solution into the existing flight planning workflow. With version 11.4, you have the ability to accurately and quickly calculate takeoff and landing performance for over 200 popular piston and single-engine turboprop aircraft as part of your flight planning workflow. This powerful combination of accurate runway and flight planning performance calculations provide critical information for your decision making and safety of flight.

For example, a DA40-180 pilot accustomed to flying near sea level knows a fully loaded aircraft on a calm, 95F/35C day can easily take off on a 4000 ft runway, requiring about half of that distance to reach the 50 ft obstacle height point. But if this pilot decides to fly in Denver, Colorado during a trip, it might come as a surprise that the same summer conditions require a full 4000 ft to reach the same 50 ft AGL point.  This is the effect a density altitude change from 2600 ft to 9000 ft has on a piston aircraft — significantly reduced aircraft performance.

With ForeFlight’s Takeoff & Landing Performance solution integrated into your flight planning workflow, you will not be caught by surprise when environmental changes negatively affect your runway performance. Ground or inflight (ADS-B) sourced weather data are used to prefill weather inputs for takeoff and landing times. The pilot can always manually override such prefilled data with the latest information from tower or ATIS. Distance results are compared to the available runway length and the pilot is warned if that is exceeded. If a runway has declared distances, the pilot is given this information and has the option to substitute a declared distance in lieu of the available runway length.

Where does the performance data come from? Your aircraft’s Pilot Operating Handbook. Our aircraft performance data team uses the official published takeoff and landing performance data from the POH to build a performance model for your aircraft. ForeFlight takes the error-prone interpolation and chart reading tasks and does them for you, accurately and quickly, whether online or offline.

Let’s take a detailed look at how this works in ForeFlight.

Walkthrough

It starts with planning your flight on the Flights view, as you currently do. Once you’ve established route, aircraft, ETD, payload and fuel load (important as they determine takeoff and landing weights), you enter the takeoff or landing performance page by tapping on either button presented in the Departure and Destination fields. We’ll calculate our takeoff here, but the landing calculation is nearly identical in workflow and look.

The top section of the takeoff page is where we pick our departure runway. This is currently a pilot’s choice. Tapping the runway selector, all available runways at the departure airport are presented. Wind component along each runway is provided by green (headwind) or red (tailwind) arrows along with the component magnitude. Grey crosswind arrows and magnitude are also displayed. More information on each runway can be obtained by tapping the Details button. Finally, the current METAR, TAF or MOS (if available) derived weather data is presented for your ETD.

   

Selecting a runway triggers the performance calculation sequence. At this point, all inputs — selected runway, environmental conditions, and default aircraft configurations — are used to perform the table interpolations and graphical chart readings to find all relevant takeoff performance results for this condition. Note that aircraft configurations (flaps, cowl flap, anti-ice controls, etc) are currently defaulted to a setting.

Above the runway selector, a header shows the most critical takeoff or landing information, typically a total distance and one or more target V speeds. The full output list is found in the Calculations section at the bottom of the page. The length and content of this list is driven by what runway performance data can be calculated per the aircraft’s POH.

   

To keep the list somewhat consistent, however, the following general output order can be found for every aircraft:

  1. Takeoff speeds and distances
  2. Takeoff climb data
  3. Enroute climb data

And for multi-engine aircraft, one-engine inoperative (OEI) data:

  1. OEI Max Takeoff Weight
  2. OEI Takeoff distances
  3. OEI climb data

Predicted takeoff and landing distances are compared to the available runway length and a warning is provided if the predicted distance exceeds the available length. In the example below, the available runway length input was manually shortened to the runway’s Accelerate-Stop Distance Available (ASDA) declared distance. In this case actual accelerate-stop distance is predicted to slightly exceed the ASDA declared distance. Use of declared distances (versus the physical available runway length) is entirely up to the pilot and any declared distance are provided in the runway section footer.

Final Takeaway

Takeoff and landing performance integration into ForeFlight’s existing flight planning flow is a significant safety improvement for all pilots. Whether calculating the takeoff performance out of a hot/high/short runway or calculating one’s landing and stopping performance just prior to landing using the latest weather information available, this feature can greatly enhance operational safety. Last second runway change? No problem with the fast and accurate offline takeoff and landing performance calculation ability.

It’s important to realize that the Takeoff and Landing performance integration uses your POH performance data. So all assumptions and input parameters, as well as published limitations — temperature, weight, altitude, wind, runway slope ranges — are modeled exactly as they exist in your POH. If a hot temperature condition at a specific pressure altitude is not published, ForeFlight cannot calculate performance for that condition and will not present results. Now is a good time to re-familiarize yourself with your aircraft’s takeoff and landing performance data in your POH, using ForeFlight’s ability to quickly and accurately calculate these results, while learning about the full capabilities of your aircraft.

New Passenger App, Route Line in Profile, and More in ForeFlight 11.2

ForeFlight 11.2 is available now with a brand new “Passenger” companion app, as well as new features like route line in Profile view, airspace hiding by altitude, 3D View anywhere, and more!

Passenger App

Passenger is the new companion app to ForeFlight Mobile that allows your passengers to follow along with the flight and answers the question “Are we there yet?”

Available on the App Store now, Passenger is free to download and requires no setup. Your travel companions will be able to view the route of flight overlaid on the map, real-time aircraft position, speed, altitude, estimated time of arrival, and more – right on their own iPad or iPhone.

Connectivity between ForeFlight Mobile and Passenger is available for all ForeFlight subscribers. To wirelessly share your route with nearby devices running Passenger, tap into More > Passenger in the ForeFlight Mobile app, then tap Enable & Start. Both devices should have Wi-Fi enabled for the connection to work.

If you make changes to the route, ForeFlight will automatically transmit them to Passenger. Passengers can pan and zoom around the map without affecting anything in your ForeFlight Mobile app. Passenger supports Split View and Slide Over on iPad so users can multitask while staying up to date with flight information. 

Be sure to let your friends and family know about Passenger before they join you on your next flight! Learn more at foreflight.com/passenger.

Route Line in Profile View

Profile View now offers a side-on perspective of your route line and inflight progress in relation to terrain, obstacles, and airspace, supplementing the top-down map view and improving your situational awareness.

In the Flight Plan Editor on the Maps view, select an aircraft, create a route, then tap Profile near the bottom-right corner. Profile View shows your planned route line in relation to terrain, obstacles, and airspace. ForeFlight uses your aircraft’s performance data to depict realistic climb and descent profiles, including top of climb and top of descent points. The detailed ForeFlight Performance Profiles that are available with the Performance Plus plan will give the most accurate depiction, but ForeFlight will also use basic performance profiles to show climb and descent. You can zoom and pan left and right in the Profile View to get a closer look at any part of the route.

Inflight mode vs Route mode.jpgAfter takeoff, Profile View automatically switches to an inflight mode that shows your current altitude and the terrain, obstacles, and airspace up to 65 nautical miles ahead of your current position. Tap the route icon in the top right to switch back to the plan view. If you are within the route corridor, the plan view will display your current position and altitude in relation to your planned route.

Profile View is included in ForeFlight Pro plans and above and you can learn more about ForeFlight’s mobile hazard awareness technology at foreflight.com/hazard.

Hide Airspace by Altitude

Declutter ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map by hiding airspace above a selected altitude, making it easier to focus on airspace more relevant to your route. You can find the “Hide Airspace Above” option in Map Settings > Airspace, and enter altitudes in either feet or flight level (e.g. 18,000 or 180). Erasing the value will turn off the setting and show all airspace. A small banner appears in the bottom-right corner of the map if airspace is hidden to keep you aware of the current setting, and if you climb to within 1,000 feet of hidden airspace along your route, ForeFlight will automatically reveal it, helping you stay aware of airspace when you need to be.

3D View, Anywhere

3D AnywhereAccess 3D View for any location on Earth, not just airports. 3D View combines high-resolution terrain and aerial imagery to create a realistic representation of wherever you tap and allows you to zoom and rotate the map in three dimensions. To see 3D View, tap-hold a spot on the map, then tap the “3D” button in the top right of the Add to Route window. Use 3D View anywhere to get a better sense of what terrain and obstacles will look like on your route so you’re more prepared for your next flight.

Send Block Times to Logbook

Block Times to LogbookWhen you send a flight plan that has block times entered in the Flight Log to Logbook, those block times are now carried over and appear in the new Logbook entry. These times are similarly preserved when you send a recorded track log to Logbook, including when a draft Logbook entry is created automatically from a new Track Log. Learn more about Logbook here.

Gogo ATG Support

Gogo LogoGogo’s ATG and AVANCE lines of inflight Wi-Fi systems can now provide GPS position and indicated altitude in ForeFlight. Optionally limit expensive data usage over Gogo’s network by disabling ForeFlight’s internet-connected capabilities like streamed weather data.

ForeFlight Goes to 11!

ForeFlight 11 is available now and features an immersive Airport 3D View to help you get familiar with new airports , inflight tracking with Breadcrumbs, Graphical AIRMETs via ADS-B, and more!

Explore Airports From a New Perspective with Airport 3D View

This 3-dimensional preview of the airport environment combines terrain data and aerial imagery to help you get familiar with new airports, whether you’re preparing for your next flight or exploring new places to fly. This feature is available with Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.

You can access any airport’s 3D View by tapping the “3D View” button on Airports or in the airport popup on Maps. ForeFlight combines high-resolution terrain and streamed aerial imagery to create a realistic representation of the airport environment. Rotate and zoom the camera in or out to access every perspective, and watch the metrics in the top-left of the view update as you move the camera. Tap the runway button in the top-right to position the camera along the published glideslope for that runway, or at an angle of 6° if the runway doesn’t have any published approaches. Check the compass and airport diagram in the bottom-left of the view to see the wind direction relative to the selected runway.

Follow Your Flight with Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are an extension of ForeFlight’s Track Log capability allowing you to see the track log as it’s recorded, leaving a continuous line that you can reference for maneuvers, Search and Rescue and survey work, or just to see where you’ve been. At any time during or up to 30 minutes after the flight you can tap on the breadcrumb trail to see information about it, including the total recorded time, the distance traveled, and your average ground speed. Being able to see your flight’s path directly on the map can assist with specific tasks, maneuvers, missions, and improve your situational awareness.

Breadcrumbs are available with all ForeFlight subscription plans, so give it a try and see how it can help your flying!

G-AIRMETS via ADS-B

Connect to an ADS-B In receiver and stay aware of potentially dangerous weather as it develops with the FAA’s new Graphical AIRMETs in ForeFlight. G-AIRMETs appear just like regular AIRMETs in ForeFlight as part of the AIR/SIGMET/CWAs map layer and can be filtered by hazard type. Unlike regular AIRMETs and SIGMETs, G-AIRMETs include a new time slider so you can filter them based on their effective times. One type of G-AIRMET, Freezing Levels, appears as its own layer, using colored lines to indicate where freezing occurs at different altitudes for the contiguous U.S.

Logbook Enhancements

ForeFlight Logbook received a few quality-of-life improvements that make searching for logbook entries easier and faster. Search for entries based on comments, flight tasks, or aircraft equipment type in a few seconds. View a person’s details in Logbook > People to see all entries they are associated with, whether they’re a frequent passenger or a CFI. Lastly, creating a new entry with the Add Next Flight button at the bottom of an entry, will automatically carry over any passengers on the previous flight onto the new flight.

Settings Filter

There are so many ways to customize your ForeFlight experience, and now there’s an easier way to find just the App Setting you are looking for. Go to the More > Settings view and use the “Filter” text box at the top to quickly search and find Settings by name.

Recent Aeronautical Map Updates You Might Have Missed

One of the great benefits of our data-driven Aeronautical Map layer is that we can make significant updates and improvements to it without needing a whole new app release. Instead, we can just issue updates as part of our regular data-cycle releases, and the changes become visible after you download the new “Airport & Nav Database” at the top of the Downloads list. Over the past couple months we’ve made a number of major enhancements to the Aeronautical Map this way, so read on to learn about what those are and where you can find them.

Airway Label Improvements

One of the most prominent recent changes to the Aeronautical Map is that airway labels are now more prominent, and look similar to what you’d findon an IFR enroute chart. And like on an enroute chart, black and white labels indicate traditional, VOR airways, while blue and white labels indicate RNAV airways. One other improvement that pilots flying in Europe will appreciate: the Aeronautical Map now depicts directional airways using arrow-shaped labels.

The new airway labels mimic the familiar style found on IFR enroute charts 

 

 

 

The new airways also depict directionality

New KSFO Bravo Structure

Bay Area pilots are probably already familiar with the new Class B airspace structure enveloping KSFO. Even a massive change like this is very simple to make with the Aeronautical Map – we released an update to the Airport & Nav Database containing the new airspace structure about a week before it become effective. When the data-cycle turnover happened at 0901 UTC, August 16, 2018, ForeFlight swapped out the old database for the new one and updated the map instantly.

San Fransisco's new Class B structure was recently updated with a new data cycle

Most of the other recent updates we’ve made to the Aeronautical Map have been directly in response to feedback from our new customers in Europe. Europe has many types of airspace, airways, and VFR navigation features that are rare or nonexistent in North America, so we had to find new ways to depict all of this information to ensure that the Aeronautical Map would be useful to all of our customers.

New Airspace Styles

Control Zones (CTR), Radio Mandatory Zones (RMZ), different types of civilian Traffic Zones (ATZ/TIZ/TIA), and Military Aerodrome Traffic Zones (MATZ) were formerly depicted using a single style. Now there are four separate styles to help differentiate these airspaces. As with most of the features on the Aeronautical Map, we incorporated elements from ICAO charts when designing these styles so they would be familiar to pilots, while also ensuring that they fit within the Aeronautical Map’s overall design style.

Different types of airspace are now depicted differently on the Aeronautical Map

Frequency Labels on FIS Boundaries

To make finding the right frequencies easier for pilots in Europe, we added prominent labels to all FIS boundaries providing the name and information frequency of each coverage area. You can find other frequencies by tap-holding on the map and tapping Details > Communication Details for the relevant airspace, or by tapping on an airport marker to access the frequency list, which often includes frequencies for the surrounding airspace.

FIS boundaries now have frequency labels to help pilots locate them

New Styles for VFR Navigation Data

All ForeFlight subscriptions that include the Europe region come with Jeppesen’s high-quality VFR navigation and airport data built directly into the Aeronautical Map, providing a valuable resource for VFR pilots across most of Europe. We’ve also recently made some styling changes to this VFR data, exposing data that wasn’t depicted before and improving the styling of existing data to provide more information at a glance. Conveniently, the screenshot below illustrates all of these changes.

A number of different VFR features are now depicted on the Aeronautical Map

In the bottom-right you can see a VFR Transit Route, which ATC uses to direct pilots through Controlled Airspace to minimize separation issues with IFR traffic. VFR Transit Routes have labels conveying important information about the route, including the type of transit route (Helicopter in this case, but other types are VFR and Military), the route’s altitude boundaries, the distance of each route leg (8nm), and the magnetic bearing in one or both directions. We styled VFR Transit Routes on the Aeronautical Map to match the color of VFR Waypoints so it’s easier to differentiate them from airspace boundaries and other route types.

Intersecting the Helicopter route in the screenshot and extending to the north of the airport are VFR Flight Corridors. These provide safe corridors for VFR traffic on approach and departure, and include labels indicating each corridor’s name and minimum altitude. The Aeronautical Map also displays IFR Flight Corridors, which can help VFR pilots avoid IFR traffic.

Lastly, the airport in the screenshot has two kinds of traffic circuits – a standard non-directional circuit in solid white, and the newly supported directional traffic circuit made up of white arrows. Both circuits show the traffic pattern altitude of 2,700 feet.

Get familiar with these changes to the Aeronautical Map so you can maximize your use of ForeFlight for planning and flying, and look forward to additional updates in the future. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to make the Aeronautical Map, and ForeFlight in general, better suited to where and how you fly, feel free to email them to team@foreflight.com – we’re all ears.

HOUSTON, TX | July 10, 2018: ForeFlight, creator of the widely used ForeFlight Mobile Integrated Flight App, today announced the availability of Sentry™, a next-generation portable ADS-B In receiver. In addition to essential FIS-B weather, flight information, traffic, and backup attitude, Sentry adds a Carbon Monoxide monitor and alarm, a 12-hour battery, and a high-capacity data card for Weather Replay™ and storage. Sentry is packaged in the smallest form factor yet for a device this capable.

Retailing at $499 USD, Sentry is the most affordable full-featured off-the-shelf portable ADS-B In solution available on the market.

“Sentry™ is a compact, powerful, next-generation portable ADS-B receiver made possible by new technology and engineering ingenuity. Purpose-built ADS-B integrated circuits, for example, have made it possible to shrink the size, reduce power consumption, extend the battery life, add new capabilities, and lower the cost. We’ve streamlined and compressed the communications between ForeFlight Mobile and Sentry™, which results in the more efficient use of Sentry’s™ processors and extended battery life,” said Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder and CEO. “We want every ForeFlight pilot flying with the benefits ADS-B has to offer. With Sentry™, ForeFlight pilots have a powerful suite of capabilities available at a compelling price that will improve situational awareness and safety in the cockpit.”

ForeFlight and Palo Alto-based uAvionix teamed up to design and manufacture Sentry.

“With Sentry™, uAvionix and ForeFlight have created the most advanced portable flight safety device on the market, enabling in-flight traffic and weather, synthetic vision, and toxic CO detection all for the equivalent cost to a couple of hours of flight time,” says uAvionix CEO Paul Beard, “We continue to be proud partners with ForeFlight on such an important advancement in the next generation of ADS-B In portables.”

A first for portable ADS-B receivers, Sentry provides a cockpit carbon monoxide sensor and alerting system. When CO concentration reaches a hazardous level, Sentry emits a loud, distinctive alarm. In addition, within the ForeFlight app an audio alert can be heard through compatible headsets, and an alert message is displayed on the screen. The middle LED indicator on Sentry also provides a visual indication of the CO level.
Sentry supports the full range of FIS-B weather and data, including animated regional and CONUS NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, AIR/SIGMETs, PIREPs, winds and temps aloft, TFRs, NOTAMs, and SUA information. Sentry can also receive air-to-air traffic information from ADS-B Out equipped aircraft and re-broadcast traffic information (ADS-R and TIS-B) from FAA ground towers. As they become available, Sentry will also support the new FIS-B weather products to include icing, turbulence, cloud tops, lightning, G-AIRMETs, and CWAs in a future ForeFlight Mobile release.
Sentry has onboard memory to support Weather Replay™ which provides automatic storage of up to 30-minutes of FIS-B data. Sleep the iPad and then receive a burst of updates when the iPad wakes. If there is more than one iPad connected, each iPad will be synced to have the same data replayed. ForeFlight will also animate ADS-B radar, looping up to 30-minutes of radar while in flight.

Sentry has a compact form factor at 57mm x 83mm x 36mm (2.2in x 3.3in x 1.4in) and weighs in at 119 grams (0.26 lbs). The dual ADS-B antennas are optimized for 978 MHz and 1090 MHz frequencies and are integrated into the device. The traffic awareness capability functions worldwide.
