Our August release features a new capability to select from multiple climb and descent performance profiles, multiple climb and descent performance profiles for some aircraft, and more aircraft types supported for Runway Analysis!
Edit Climb & Descent Performance Profiles
Increase the accuracy of time and fuel calculations by adjusting climb and descent performance profiles to suit your aircraft’s actual performance.
Each aircraft type that supports built-in ForeFlight Performance Profiles has climb, cruise, and descent profiles based on manufacturer data. Previously, only cruise profiles supported biasing of time and fuel flow. Now, climb and descent profiles support biasing of time and fuel, giving you more control over how ForeFlight calculates these factors for every flight.
Tap into the Performance Profile menu from the Aircraft, Flights, or Maps views to see a list of all climb, cruise, and descent profiles for the selected aircraft. Tap the Details button or the profile itself to access the bias adjustments.
Multiple Climb & Descent Performance Profiles
In addition to the ability to bias climb and descent profiles, a number of popular jet aircraft now also support multiple climb and descent profiles.
Several dozen aircraft models from Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, and Gulfstream provide multiple climb and descent profiles in ForeFlight. Each is built using manufacturer-sourced data in accordance with the profiles in each aircraft’s Pilot’s Operating Handbook.
The “Apply Bias to All Climb/Descent Profiles” button within each profile’s details view allows you to quickly apply one profile’s bias values to all other climb or descent profiles for that aircraft.
New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support
ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis product for jets now supports Gulfstream’s GV, GVII-G600, and G450, and Bombardier’s Learjet 60XR and 35A. See the full list of supported aircraft types here.
Runway Analysis is available for a growing list of aircraft types and can be purchased alongside a ForeFlight Performance subscription plan.
