ForeFlight’s integrated document distribution and management capability provides incredible value for flight departments of any size. Easily upload all your documents in one place, distribute documents to crew members as needed, and manage pilots with ForeFlight’s compliance tracking, all saving your flight department time and money.
ForeFlight Cloud Documents is the fast, easy, affordable way to distribute company documents to every flight crew member. Administrators can control the distribution of every new or revised flight manual, operating handbook, or special procedures to every pilot’s iPad or iPhone – delivered from the cloud of your choice: Dropbox, Amazon S3, and Box.
Extensive File Type Support
Import documents anytime or anywhere via AirDrop, iTunes, email, or Cloud Documents, then access them or add them to Nested Folders from the Imported drive. ForeFlight supports a wide range of file types for importing and viewing in Documents: pdf, tiff, tif, jpg, jpeg, gif, png, bmp, bmpf, txt, doc, docx, xlsx, xls, pptx, ppt, csv, pages, key, and numbers. Learn how to import documents.
Compartmentalize documents for different groups by adding nested folders within your Cloud Document drive for even more flexibility. ForeFlight will automatically keep that folder or drive up to date when new or updated documents become available, allowing crew members to download and receive automatic updates to whichever folders they select. Nested folders are ideal for multi-pilot accounts where not all users need to download the same set of documents.
Import Custom Content via the Cloud
ForeFlight’s cloud integration also allows administrators to quickly distribute Content Packs with custom charts, procedures, map layers, and waypoints with linked documents or images. Putting your flight department’s specialized content directly in ForeFlight provides easy access for pilots and creates endless possibilities for customizing the app to better suit your operation. Content Packs with support for cloud importing are included in Business Performance Plans.
ForeFlight’s Sync system allows pilots to effortlessly keep their documents organized when moving between devices and backs up manually-imported documents to the ForeFlight Cloud. Any annotations or bookmarks added to a document on one device will also appear on the pilot’s other devices while connected to the internet.
Easily view which pilots have outdated documents so you can take action and ensure pilots are flying with the latest charts, data, and documents. The Compliance view on ForeFlight Web provides a detailed list of every pilot on your account, breaking down the different types of data and software versions (both iOS and ForeFlight) for each one and coloring expired data red for easy identification.
