Better App Search, Airspace in Profile View, Automatic Downloads, and More in ForeFlight 10

ForeFlight 10 is here! Expanded search capability provides results from multiple app views so you can find what you need faster, a collection of powerful new airspace features help you stay aware of (or away from) airspace along your route, and automatic chart and data downloads keep you up to date and ready to fly. Other improvements include an extended GDL 90 protocol for third-party devices and an interactive map for Pack. Read on to get the details and watch the videos!

Please note that ForeFlight 10 requires iOS 10.3 or higher.

Expanded App Search Delivers Results You Need – Fast

The Airports, Maps, and Plates views now share a unified search capability that supports a wider range of search types making it easier and faster to find what you’re looking for.

When connected to the internet, search for cities, states, countries, addresses, street intersections, and even business and place names (e.g. “Central Park”). These new search types help operators pinpoint exact locations for missions like urban search and rescue. Other supported search types include navaids by name, airports, procedures, aircraft registration, and scheduled flights. Recent search history recalls previous searches and saves them for offline use.

Search is fast, flexible, and smart, offering suggestions as you type and prioritizing results based on which app view you’re on. For example, searching for an airport identifier on the Airports and Maps views puts airport results at the top of the list, while the same search on Plates displays procedures for that airport at the top of the list.

Airspace in Profile View

ForeFlight’s Profile View now includes an interactive vertical cross-section of controlled, MOA, SUA, and TFR airspace along your planned route or flight track. Combined with terrain and obstacles, Airspace in Profile View gives you a single view to help plan and navigate around hazards and complex airspace.

You can tap on any airspace shown in Profile View to display airspace name and type, floor and ceiling details, and TFR effective times. With airspace selected, the main map automatically zooms to and highlights the airspace, allowing you to see exactly where your route intersects from a top-down perspective.

Use the Ruler tool (press two fingers on the map simultaneously) to pan around the map and watch Profile View depict what is between your fingertips.

Profile View is available in Pro Plus plans and above.

Automatic Airspace Highlighting

ForeFlight’s data-driven Aeronautical Maps now highlight airspace along your route while dimming other airspace, making it easy to focus on the airspaces that matter for your flight. ForeFlight automatically highlights any airspace within +/- 1,000 feet of your altitude and within 1-nautical mile on either side of your route. Adjust your route or altitude, and ForeFlight smoothly updates the on-screen depiction.

ForeFlight considers the flight’s climb, cruise, and descent trajectory to highlight nearby airspace. Once in flight, ForeFlight uses your current altitude to determine which airspaces to highlight, and looks ahead to highlight airspace along your current heading, even if not directly on your route.

Global Airspace Details

ForeFlight’s Maps view now features Jeppesen-sourced global airspace information for FIRs, UIRs, controlled airspace, and special use airspace. Tap-hold anywhere on the map to see a list of airspaces at that location, then tap “Details” to find more information.

Different types of airspace provide different amounts of information: controlled airspace shows basic information about the class of airspace and altitude limits. Special use airspace and MOAs add to this with information about communication frequencies, activation hours, and the controlling agency. Flight information regions (FIRs) and upper information regions (UIRs) have even more detailed information, listing center, control, and radio frequencies; RVSM cruise tables; and operational notes required for transnational and oceanic flights.

Automatic Downloads Reduce Preflight Workload

Eliminate the little red notification on the More tab without having to tap anything! ForeFlight will now automatically download chart and data updates when connected to internet via Wi-Fi to ensure that you always have current charts and data.

ForeFlight will automatically download chart and data updates when they become available.

Note that charts downloaded using Pack or charts you are no longer “subscribed” to in Download Settings will not receive automatic updates. Make sure you select all the charts, data, and regions you need in More > Downloads > Download Settings.

 

 

Extended GDL 90 Protocol for Third-Party Devices

ForeFlight's extended GDL 90 protocol enables more connectivity for third-party devices

ForeFlight allows third-party devices to transmit live inflight data to ForeFlight Mobile using the industry-standard GDL 90 Data Interface Specification. Properly configured devices will be able to send GPS data, ADS-B weather and traffic, AHRS, and device-specific information like device name and serial number to ForeFlight.

The full data specification is available on our website at foreflight.com/connect/spec.

Other Noteworthy Improvements

  • The Pack window on Maps and Flights now includes an interactive map showing your route and the “Pack corridor”, which extends for 25 nautical miles on either side of your route. Pack downloads weather and NOTAMs within this corridor, ensuring you have access to this important data while offline in the air.
    Pack now includes a map showing the download corridor.
  • For Performance customers, PDC badges now appear throughout the app on airports that support the pre-departure clearance service.
  • On devices with force-touch capability, tap-hold the ForeFlight icon for quick access to New Flight, Nearest Airports, Maps, and Logbook views.
  • On ForeFlight’s web application, the Flights tab for planning and filing flight plans now has a more condensed so you can access more fields at once.

Finally, please note the following:

  • Profile View is available for Pro Plus subscribers and above.
  • As a feature of ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map, Airspace Highlighting requires a “Plus” subscription plan.
  • ForeFlight 10 requires iOS 10.3 or higher

ForeFlight Previews ForeFlight Mobile for Europe at Aero Friedrichshafen

ForeFlight develops the essential, powerful, and popular integrated flight application for VFR and IFR pilots that delivers the data, information, and capabilities needed to quickly and safely plan, fly, and log flights.

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, DE | April 18, 2018: ForeFlight announced that it will introduce its flagship integrated flight application in Europe this summer.

ForeFlight Mobile, which will be on display for demonstration at AERO Friedrichshafen (stand A3-504), is the most widely used application by individual pilots and professional flight crews to efficiently access weather, airport information, plan flights with optimized routing, file flight plans via EUROCONTROL, access and manage electronic charts and maps, reference flight manuals and documents, avoid terrain and obstacles with state-of-the-art hazard awareness tools, access in-flight weather where supported, and aid enroute navigation.

ForeFlight on mobile and web

Plan, brief, and file with ForeFlight on mobile and the web. Additional product images below.

ForeFlight will offer European pilots — beginning with a focus in the German market — a single solution for VFR and IFR flying. All subscription plans for the Europe region will include Jeppesen’s best-in-class digital VFR and IFR navigation data, which are dynamically rendered directly on ForeFlight’s fast data-driven aeronautical map, as well as AIP procedures, charts, and documents provided via EUROCONTROL.

Optional purchases will include Jeppesen VFR terminal procedures (formerly Bottlang charts), Jeppesen IFR global chart coverages (available today), and host nation VFR data packages – initially with an option to add charts and procedures from DFS.

“ForeFlight is excited to unveil ForeFlight Mobile’s European capabilities at AERO Friedrichshafen,” said ForeFlight Co-founder and CEO, Tyson Weihs. “We are combining an array of high-quality European data, our EUROCONTROL-integrated flight planning and filing capabilities, and a broad suite of navigation and safety features to deliver a uniquely powerful and affordable integrated flight application for VFR and IFR flying. With one application, pilots can review airport information and maps, NOTAMs, plan and brief flights for pistons or jets, validate and file flight plans with EUROCONTROL, navigate complex airspace, avoid terrain and obstacles with hazard alerts and synthetic vision, access weather and traffic in-flight where supported, automatically update databases, and transfer flight plans directly from ForeFlight Mobile into Garmin, Avidyne, and Dynon avionics.”

“Our team members in Denmark, Germany, UK, and Finland – along with our large beta team and thousands of current European customers – are flying throughout Europe every week and helping us carefully craft a great product that works well here,” said Kim Lantz, ForeFlight European Director. “When we release ForeFlight Mobile for Europe later this summer, we expect pilots will find the integration of ForeFlight’s own data, Jeppesen VFR and IFR data, EUROCONTROL data, and DFS data; our fast, accurate flight planning and routing; and the breadth of in-flight features combine to deliver a delightful experience that makes planning and flying in Europe a joy.”

AERO attendees are encouraged to visit the ForeFlight stand (A3 – 504) for a demonstration and to sign up to be notified about ForeFlight’s European release. You can learn more about ForeFlight Mobile as well as sign up for notifications by visiting foreflight.com/europe.

Essential Charts and Data for VFR and IFR Flying

ForeFlight’s powerful, state-of-the-art map engine gives the app its signature speed and fluidity when panning and zooming. The global basemap and data-driven Aeronautical Map layer feature Jeppesen’s high-quality terrain, obstacle, and NavData®.

In addition, Jeppesen’s Europe VFR data is integrated into the Aeronautical Map, giving VFR pilots all of the information they need to fly, including VFR waypoints, arrival and departure procedures, circuits, holds, no overfly areas, nature reserves, and more.

For IFR flyers, optional Jeppesen chart coverages are available today and include departure, arrival, and geo-referenced terminal procedures, airport charts, data-driven enroute charts, and Jeppesen Airway Manual supplements.

Smart, Interactive Route Planning

ForeFlight makes preflight planning fast and easy. Customers can plan a route in minutes using ForeFlight’s interactive Map or the form-based Flights view. The Graphical Route Advisor feature produces EUROCONTROL validated routes within a matter of seconds and presents the options for comparison on a visual preview map.

For customers on the top-tier Performance Plus plan, ForeFlight also provides a Recommended Route option that produces the best route based on wind, temperature, and the specific aircraft performance profile.

In addition, planning for and navigating through the complex airspace in Europe is easier with ForeFlight’s new Airspace in Profile and Automatic Airspace Highlight capabilities.

In the app’s Profile View, a vertical cross-section of the planned route is depicted with airspaces, terrain, and obstacles. The view is interactive so tapping on an element in the Profile simultaneously highlights the location of that element on the map below. Inflight, Profile View depicts the aircraft’s current altitude in relation to airspace, terrain, and obstacles along the flight track.

The Automatic Airspace Highlight feature considers the flight’s climb, cruise, and descent trajectory to highlight airspace near the aircraft or along the route of flight. All other airspace dims to reduce airspace clutter on the map. This feature works in both preflight planning mode and in flight.

Integrated Flight Plan Filing for ICAO IFR, VFR, YFR & ZFR

Customers can file flight plans directly from the mobile app or on the web. ForeFlight’s global, redundant AFTN connection provides fast, direct, and unlimited access to filing flight plans with EUROCONTROL with no additional cost or account configuration required. Routes from the Graphical Route Advisor can be filtered based on IFR, VFR, YFR, or ZFR flight rules making it easier to find the correct route and to select it for filing.

Stunning Weather Visualization

The planned route line can be viewed in relation to a full range of interactive aviation weather layers, including animated radar, global satellite and winds aloft, color-coded METARs and TAFs, graphical AIR/SIGMETs, global icing and turbulence, surface pressure isobars, and more. A separate Imagery view neatly organizes static weather forecast imagery by region.

ForeFlight in the Air

Once in the cockpit, the Maps tab transitions from comprehensive preflight planning tool to dynamic inflight navigation support. For the ultimate situational awareness, the innovative Charts on Maps feature overlays approach plates and airport diagrams onto the moving map, along with aircraft position, weather, and hazards in one integrated view.

ForeFlight’s advanced, global hazard awareness technology helps pilots plan and fly with more confidence in all conditions and terrain. The top-down-view Hazard Advisor map layer, the side Profile View, and 3D Synthetic Vision depict a clear picture of terrain and obstacle hazards anywhere in the world. When paired with a compatible AHRS source, Synthetic Vision provides a backup attitude display.

In addition to AHRS, ForeFlight’s Connect platform enables portable and installed avionics to connect with ForeFlight Mobile and deliver capabilities like two-way flight plan transfer, and the display of ADS-B traffic and GPS data. Learn more about ForeFlight Connect at foreflight.com/connect.

ForeFlight’s Recommended Route Explained

Recommended Route is an output of ForeFlight’s proprietary autorouting engine that gives you the best route with the highest likelihood of “cleared as filed”, while optimizing on current and forecast wind and temperature data, altitude, and your specific aircraft performance constraints. Using ForeFlight’s Graphical Route Advisor makes it quick and easy to generate a Recommended Route, File the route, and get on with your mission.

For routes that include a departure or destination in Europe, ForeFlight’s autorouting capability includes EUROCONTROL validation.

The Graphical Route Advisor is designed to give you a quick comparison of trip time, fuel, and ground distance for each available route, at the stated altitude. The Route Advisor tool is also enhanced with the graphical overlay of all route options on a map. You can visually inspect each route by tapping on it, and as you do, it is highlighted on the map to give you an immediate and visual route comparison.

To generate a Recommended Route (available with Performance level plans), ForeFlight’s routing engine analyses thousands of 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 route that delivers more consistent ‘cleared as filed’ flight plans optimized for your aircraft.

ForeFlight also provides a list of previous ATC cleared routes that others have flown. This list is actively curated (meaning we prune out old, non-applicable routes and routes with expired waypoints) so that, similar to the Recommended Route, you have the best chance of selecting a route that comes back “cleared as filed”. In addition, ForeFlight displays the filing recency, frequency, and aircraft type.

We are continually refining the capabilities of our routing engine to make even smarter altitude suggestions. For example, if you’re flying a shorter route, ForeFlight will suggest an altitude that accommodates executing the flight with roughly one-third of the flight time in climb, one-third of the flight time in cruise, and one-third of the flight time descent. This results in a more comfortable ride, as well as requesting an altitude that ATC is more likely to accept.

Using the Recommended Route feature makes it really fast and easy to find the route that is best optimized for your aircraft with a ‘cleared as filed’ outcome – all with minimal pilot workload.

Recommended Route and Detailed Aircraft Performance Profiles

An essential part of generating a Recommended Route is having detailed aircraft performance profile data available to feed into the calculations. You can set up a fully configured aircraft in just ten seconds with the help of ForeFlight’s predefined aircraft profiles. ForeFlight uses the aircraft manufacturer’s published flight planning performance data, or “the book values”, defined not only for multiple altitudes, but also multiple weights and temperatures, therefore fully modeling the aircraft’s climb, cruise, and descent performance for all conditions.

All of this adds up to reduced pilot workload during flight planning and more confidence in the resulting answers.

Access to ForeFlight’s Recommended Route, built-in detailed aircraft profiles, and many more powerful performance planning features are available in our top-tier Performance plans. Click here for pricing information and click here to learn more about Performance.

Smarter Autorouting, Quick Access to Pack on Flights, New Flight Log, and More

Our first release of 2018 brings quick access to Pack on the Flights view for downloading charts and weather before a flight, and smarter route suggestions for Performance subscribers with the new Recommended Route. Other noteworthy improvements include a new Flight Log to record start/end meter times, Out/Off/On/In times, and fuel remaining after a flight, as well as temperature and dewpoint data in MOS forecasts. 

Integrated Flight Log Simplifies Your Record-Keeping

If you keep an aircraft flight log for recording actual flight time and fuel values, the new Flight Log can streamline your post-flight workflow by automating these common time calculations.

Scroll to the bottom of the Flights view to access the new Flight Log. Use the “Fuel at Shutdown” field to capture that data for reference during fuel load planning on your next flight. Tap on “Times” to open a page where you can record the flight’s start and end meter times and Out/Off/On/In times. ForeFlight uses these values to calculate total flight, block, and meter times and displays a summary on the main Flights form for quick reference.

The Flight Log is also useful for comparing actual ETE and fuel burn values with ForeFlight’s planned values so you can fine-tune your aircraft’s performance profile in ForeFlight. For Performance customers, tap into the performance profile detail view to adjust the bias sliders.

Pack Charts, Data, and the Latest Weather from Flights

To further streamline your planning workflow on Flights, you’ll find a quick access button to Pack directly below the Flight Log. Just like the ‘suitcase’ button on the Maps view, Pack analyzes your route to determine the charts, data, NOTAM, and weather information you need, then prompts you to download with a single tap. Packed data is available offline and when in flight. Pack also includes Icing and Turbulence map layers for Pro Plus and Performance subscribers, helping you find smoother air while in flight.

Pack uses a “route corridor” to determine what information to include: weather and NOTAMs within 25 NM on either side of your route and within 50 NM of both your departure and destination airports are included. Pack also uses your chart type selections in More > Downloads to determine what maps and charts to include, so if you haven’t selected IFR High Charts, for example, Pack won’t prompt you to download them.

Use Pack to ensure you don’t get caught in the air without the charts you need.

Faster, Smarter Autorouting for Your Aircraft

For Performance subscribers, the new Recommended Route feature (formerly AviationCloud Autoroute) gives you the best route based on your detailed aircraft performance profile and time/fuel savings, while also accounting for preferred routes, recent ATC cleared routes, and how frequently a given route is assigned. Use the recommended route for more ‘cleared as filed’ flight plans.

Recommended Route provides more relevant results based on your aircraft and altitude

Graphical Route Advisor in ForeFlight

In addition, on shorter routes, the Recommended Route makes smarter altitude suggestions to prevent uncomfortably short cruise times at or near the aircraft’s service ceiling and provides altitudes that ATC is more likely to accept.

Graphical Route Advisor is also better at filtering out old and irrelevant filed routes created to avoid storms and other temporary hazards.

For all customers who File with ForeFlight, expected Route notifications now include “(as filed)” after the route string if the expected route is the same as the one you filed.

New Closure Warnings and Expanded NOTAM Coverage

A prominent banner appears when an airport has a runway closed by NOTAM

We’ve added prominent new warning banners that let you know when an airport or runway is closed by NOTAM, making this critical information more visible to help you avoid surprises. The red banner appears on the Airports or Maps view on any closed airport or airport with a closed runway, indicating which runway is closed in the latter case. Tap or scroll to the list of runways and a smaller banner will appear on the one that’s closed. Tap the runway to see the closure NOTAM with effective and expiration dates.

We also integrated the full set of EUROCONTROL-sourced EAD NOTAMs, providing greater NOTAM coverage for European airports. We continue to provide worldwide NOTAM coverage using the FAA’s global database.

 

MOS forecasts now provide temperature and dewpoint values and ranges

Temperature & Dewpoint in MOS

MOS forecasts in ForeFlight now provide temperature and dewpoint values, enhancing their usefulness as a supplement to official TAFs. MOS stands for Model Output Statistics and, as the name suggests, is derived from the output of weather prediction models to forecast weather at over 2000 U.S. airports, including smaller ones not served by an official TAF. The new temperature and dewpoint values are expressed either as single values or as ranges, indicating that conditions are expected to vary over the forecast period. Learn more about MOS.

 

 

Updates to ForeFlight on the Web

For a more seamless experience between web and mobile, the Maps page on the web now has a combined Favorite/Recent Route button with Edit/Clear functions. For Performance subscribers who plan with Flights on the web, the total fuel burn values shown in the Route and Altitude Advisors now include taxi fuel to better represent total fuel usage.

The web application now has Favorite/Recent Route button with Edit/Clear functions.

Other Noteworthy Improvements

  • When you select an FBO on the Flights view, details for it such as FBO name, phone number, and frequency are included in the printable Navlog. Learn more about printable Navlog.The Navlog now includes important information about the selected FBO
  • A new setting in More > Settings > Flights can be used to translate weather and NOTAM information in the text-only Legacy Briefing to plain text, or leave it in the original coded form.
  • Performance subscribers can now enable a %MAC mode in ForeFlight’s Weight & Balance feature, simplifying data entry for jet pilots.
