Expanded Operational Notes and more in ForeFlight 14.3

Featured

Our April release includes expanded Operational Notes, Delay/STAY planning and New Runway Analysis aircraft support.

Expanded Operational Notes

Access Jeppesen-sourced Operational Notes describing comms frequencies, restrictions, and more for airways, waypoints, and navaids in addition to airspace.

Tap any map element on the Aeronautical Map or Jeppesen enroute charts to view its details and Operational Notes, if it has any, or tap-hold on the map to see a list of nearby elements and tap Details to access the same information.

Delay/STAY Planning

Easily incorporate enroute delays into your flight plan and file them with automatic formatting appropriate to your region.

To add a delay to your route at a specific waypoint, tap the waypoint’s bubble in the FPL Editor and tap Set Altitude/Speed/Time.

Then tap the Duration field under DELAY/STAY to set a Delay duration in hours and minutes, after which you can also add remarks below. Remarks are only required when filing with STAYs in Europe and are optional elsewhere. 

Another way to access Delay/STAY planning is to tap directly on the waypoint on the map and tap “More >” in the top right to access the same menu.

Once your delay is added, ForeFlight will incorporate the delay into your performance calculations to accurately reflect the delay’s impact on fuel consumption and flight time.

To file a flight with a Delay/STAY, just send the route containing the delay to the Flights view. ForeFlight will automatically format the delay in both the filed route string and remarks field with the appropriate notation for your region.

Delay/STAY planning is currently limited to flights within the same administrative airspace (e.g. FAA, EUROCONTROL, etc.), and is available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support

ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis product for jets now supports the Hawker 750, 800XP, and 850XP.

Runway Analysis is available for a growing list of aircraft types and can be purchased alongside a ForeFlight Performance subscription plan.

​​New Aero Map Filters and More in ForeFlight 14

Our January release includes new Aeronautical Map Quick Toggles for Airways, Navaids, and Waypoints, improved functionality for Takeoff and Alternate Minimums documents, and more.

New Aero Map Filters

Declutter the Aeronautical Map with new quick toggles for Airways, Navaids, and Waypoints, which were previously combined in a single toggle.

Find the best combination of these elements to suit your flight, such as:

  • Hiding Airways and Waypoints on VFR flights
  • Hiding Navaids for RNAV-based routes
  • Turn on Airways to inspect MEA/MOCA/MAA values and quickly hide them again for a VFR flight
  • Turn on Airways for IFR flights or when following along on a commercial flight

You can also access these filters in Map Settings > Airways & Waypoints. Tap the gear icon at the top of your screen near the Flight Plan (FPL) icon to access Map Settings.

Quickly Find Takeoff & Alternative Minimums

Easily find the Takeoff or Alternate Minimums for any US airport more quickly thanks to a new smart automation. When opening either of these documents from the airport’s procedures list, ForeFlight will automatically jump to the page with that airport’s information, allowing you to review it right away without flipping through pages to find the airport.

Military Flight Bag (MFB): GeoTIFF Support

Easily import charts, maps, and other mission assets from current and legacy military mapping software like FalconView with new support for GeoTIFF custom content files.

Like the MBTiles and GeoPDF custom chart formats, you can import GeoTIFF files individually and within a Content Pack’s “layers” folder. Note that AirDrop is not a supported import method for GeoTIFFs as iOS automatically imports them to the Photos app as images.

Once imported, you can access GeoTIFF charts in the bottom-left of the Maps view Layer Selector.

ForeFlight supports GeoTIFF files with resolutions up to 10,000 pixels, regardless of the image dimensions. Larger resolution images must be divided and imported as separate files. Learn more about creating and using custom Content Packs here.

Military Flight Bag: Prioritize Jeppesen Plates

MFB users with linked Jeppesen accounts can now choose to prioritize Jeppesen plates over DOD/FAA plates, causing the Jeppesen plates to appear at the top of the list wherever you access them in ForeFlight.

Enable this setting in More > Jeppesen at the bottom of the Jeppesen Settings list.
