    Please check the answer for your first question. I believe the first selection is much better and more accurate. Select KTVL (favorite ski area) to see the display.

    I only missed the “trick question”. Not bad considering I’ve never seen or used ForeFlight before this quiz.

    Just learning how to use Fore Flight. If you have Stratus in the plane do you still have to download your information to the I Pad?

      T B – I have a Stratus 2 and it automatically downloads to the iPad, and should also be part of the draft logbook entry. Great app, enjoy!

    Great learning tool (and for review) I have been using foreflight for abit , but been learning by trial and error (not a good way to learn and get the most out of it, I know bu limited time available).
    I am looking forward to more of this type of learning to get the most out of it. I can’t imagine some of the others who claim to have not used / seen foreflight before and get the scores they got, probably IT guys.
