ForeFlight synthetic vision takes situational awareness to the next level – especially when connected to a Sentry Plus ADS-B receiver. This portable device provides real-time pitch and bank information and now it even uses baro-corrected altitude for the ultimate backup display.
Many pilots prefer to use ForeFlight’s interactive Aeronautical Map layer instead of a VFR Sectional, thanks to its ability to scale up and down based on the current zoom level. This layer is especially useful when flying in and around complex airspace since it allows you to customize what elements are shown on the chart. Take our latest quiz and see if you know how to get the most out of these advanced settings.
Pilots have been crowd-sourcing data for decades (PIREPs!), long before the days of Waze police reports and Google Maps traffic updates. The latest update in ForeFlight improves one of its main crowd-sourcing features, by offering an improved flow for updating FBO fuel prices.
ForeFlight released a new aviation app for Apple Watch and it’s included for all current ForeFlight subscribers. Here’s a quick look at how to use it and why it’s a must have for ForeFlight pilots.
The latest ForeFlight update adds new “Aircraft on Runway Alerts” to better get your attention if an airplane is on the runway while you’re on final approach, or if an airplane is on short final to a runway you’re occupying. The update also adds ADS-traffic breadcrumbs, day/night overlay on maps and baro-corrected pressure altitude.
ForeFlight’s Maps page can be a pilot’s best friend, since it’s packed with visual planning tools and helpful information. But for experienced pilots, especially those who file IFR or fly high performance airplanes, the Flights tab offers a wealth of powerful features. Here are six that are often overlooked.
The latest update to ForeFlight adds a collection of minor features designed to improve the usability of the app, including Airport/FBO comments, track log and logbook improvements and 3D engine out procedures for larger airplanes.
ForeFlight’s latest update is again a minor one but adds some important safety features that all pilots will appreciate. This includes a runway length filter for airports displayed in the Aeronautical Maps layer, and a profile corridor overlay to highlight obstacles along the current route.
One of the major weather hazards pilots have to deal with this time of year is convective weather and resulting thunderstorms. This article takes a deep dive look at the resources available in ForeFlight to help you plan a flight around these weather hazards.
ForeFlight began as a pre-flight app and over time grew to become a powerful in-flight tool as well. The weakest (and, to be honest, least important) phase has been post-flight. That may change now that the electronic flight bag giant has acquired CoudAhoy, an innovative software company with robust flight analysis tools.
The latest update to ForeFlight adds the previously missing VFR checkpoint and waypoint navigation features to the aeronautical map layer.
