ForeFlight released version 7.1 last week, which significantly enhances the weather imagery section. To help pilots better understand the new weather charts featured in the app we talked with ForeFlight weather scientist Scott Dennstaedt at the AOPA Fly-In over the weekend.

ForeFlight offers multiple ways to research and plan for weather on upcoming flights, including graphical weather layers on the moving map, a dedicated imagery section with advanced forecast data from the National Weather Service and the standard weather briefing option provided by Flight Service.

Pilots flying with ForeFlight have access to more weather information than ever before, including options for both ADS-B and SiriusXM weather in flight. The variety of options is great, but it can be confusing. In this test flight video, we explore the differences between these two systems, and compare Stratus (ADS-B) with SXAR1 (SiriusXM). Which system is better? Can you use them both? Come flying with us as we explain.
