New: Graphical Route Advisor, Performance-based Step Climb, Flight Notifications, and More

Featured

ForeFlight Mobile version 9.3 is now available on the App Store.

Plan Faster with Graphical Route Advisor

The Route Advisor tool now gives you a visual preview of all route options on an interactive map. Tap through the list to highlight each route on the map, then tap “Select Route” to add it to your flight plan. Simple and easy. The interactive Route Preview map also appears in the Flights view form-based planner to provide a quick visual reference of your route. Your departure and destination airports are shown overlaid on a simple basemap.

Performance-based Step Climb Legs in Navlog

ForeFlight’s performance planning now supports step-climbs. The flight planning engine calculates the highest possible initial altitude, then automatically creates step-climb legs as the aircraft weight decreases. Step-climb information is detailed in the printable Navlog, accessible from the Flights view by tapping the Navlog button. The step climb leg information is available in Performance Plus, Business Performance, and MFB Performance plans.Learn more about ForeFlight Performance planning.

Flight Notifications

After filing your flight plan in ForeFlight, you will receive a push notification to your device when ATC issues a revised expected route and when adverse weather conditions arise that may affect your flight.

Flight Notification adverse weather

Access weather alerts in the Messages tab in the Flights view. Flight Notifications are available to customers on all ForeFlight plan levels who file flight plans via ForeFlight.

 

 

 

Flight Planning Workflow Enhancements

The “Add Next Flight” button in the Flights view makes it faster and easier to plan multi-leg flights by carrying forward departure, aircraft details, payload, fuel policy, and more. In addition, you can now export your flight plan in the official ICAO format and print, email, share via AirDrop, or save a copy in ForeFlight Documents.

Faster, Sharper, Data-Driven Basemap & New Shaded Terrain Display

The ForeFlight map engine has a significantly upgraded basemap, which now renders more quickly, smoothly, and with sharper depiction of features such as major roads, railways, national parks, and state and national boundaries.

In the Map Settings menu, choose from multiple terrain presentations: Colored, Shaded, or None. Shaded Terrain uses grayscale shading to depict terrain, providing the same level of detail as the colored terrain option with less visual distraction.

Scheduled Flight Search in Maps View

Enter a tail number, aircraft call sign, or commercial flight number into the Maps view search box to see recently filed flight plans. ForeFlight displays filed flight plans for aircraft that are either currently enroute or depart in the next 24 hours. Simply tap on a result to load the route into the Flight Plan Editor. Great for commercial pilots who want to quickly load an upcoming flight, or for passengers who want to follow along in the air!

Weather Layer Time Slider

A new interactive Time Slider control provides frame-by-frame control over playback of Radar and Satellite weather layers. Use the familiar play button to automatically play through each frame. To manually control playback, tap-hold on the Time Slider and drag left or right to move between frames, or tap on the line to the left or right of the slider marker to advance it one frame at a time in either direction.

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.
