Changes to ForeFlight’s Checklist Pro App

With the release of ForeFlight 9.0, checklists have been redesigned and integrated into the ForeFlight Mobile app, and are offered as part of our Basic Plus and Pro Plus plans. Beginning April 10, 2017, Checklist Pro app customers will no longer be able to access checklist.foreflight.com to add or modify checklists online.

Will I be able to access my Checklist Pro checklists in ForeFlight Mobile? Yes! Here is the checklist migration plan:

ForeFlight Basic Plus or Pro Plus Subscribers
If your Checklist Pro account email matches your ForeFlight Mobile account email, then your checklists have already been migrated to the ForeFlight Mobile app.

ForeFlight Basic or Pro Subscribers (legacy plans)
ForeFlight Checklist is a part of our Basic Plus and Pro Plus plans. If your Checklist Pro account email matches your ForeFlight Mobile account email, your checklists will migrate to the ForeFlight Mobile app when you upgrade to a Basic Plus or Pro Plus plan.

Checklist Pro Customer Only
Take full advantage of our digital checklist templates and create and edit your own when you purchase a Basic Plus or Pro Plus ForeFlight subscription. We recommend subscribing with the same email you currently use to access the Checklist Pro app. After purchase, your existing checklists will migrate to your ForeFlight Mobile account. In addition to checklists, a subscription to ForeFlight gives you access to an all-in-one electronic flight bag solution with an industry-leading collection of features that make planning, flying, and record-keeping a joy.

After April 10, you can still access your checklists in the Checklist Pro app on your devices. There will be no change in functionality of the Checklist Pro app and checklists will continue to sync from your devices to the server and back, however, please note that checklists will not sync between Checklist Pro and ForeFlight Mobile.
