    Strangely, I do not have the US.VFR Flyway option in my (presumably current) version. I suspect it is for a higher subscription level. Therefore, the question is improper.

      I have the most basic subscription and have the US VFR Flyaway option. It should be under US IFR (ocean) as U.S. VFR (flyaway).

    Always good to find out what ya that you knew but it was wrong.
    That’s the kind of stuff that gets you in trouble.
    This clarified some items and reinforced others.
    Foreflight is so deep that you have to practice to try to stay aware of the tools you don’t frequently use.

    Nice quiz.

    Just this week I wondered about the quickest way to find the nearest airport in ForeFlight and here it was! The active SUA NOTAMs and hot spot text were also my favs. And now I know why my map legend was “randomly” showing up on my map. Great quiz!

    I always keep “nrst apt” in lower RH corner of maps screen but it is presented incorrectly from a safety perspective. When a pilot needs direction to the nearest airport s/he needs it NOW.

    Therefore, ForeFlight should present the nrst Airport in a user friendly TO format. Currently, the information presented in FROM format requires a pilot undergoing a probable emergency to compute the reciprocal direction to the airport while operating under duress.
