What's New in Version 7.0
ForeFlight 7 is here! With this powerful update, planning gets even better with a more advanced Procedure Advisor™ and a dramatically improved navigation database that enables visual preview or SIDs, STARs, approaches, and pattern entries. Downloads are significantly faster and use less disk space. Chart Touch™ technology lets you see the margin information for sectional and IFR en-route charts. Cabin Altitude Advisor™ leverages integrated pressure sensors to alert when climbing to oxygen altitudes or when cabin pressure decreases to an unacceptable level. Our new web-based flight planning system delivers an industry first Web-to-Panel™ flight planning experience for supported avionics. Support for Apple Watch gives you at-a-glance weather, flight instruments, and timers.

More efficient route planning with Procedure Preview
ForeFlight’s innovative Procedure Advisor tool now allows you to visually preview arrivals, departures, and approach procedures on the map. There's nothing else like it in the App Store! Quickly select the most appropriate SIDs and STARs. Visual indications on available approach procedures provide clues as to which approaches are best given the current wind conditions. Pilots flying IFR will no longer have to scratch their heads figuring out which SIDs or STARs depart or enter the terminal area!
Web-to-Panel™: An Industry First
At Sun 'n Fun last week we previewed our forthcoming web based flight planner. Visit the website to learn more and sign up for the invitation-only beta. Plan on the web, sync to your mobile devices instantly, and transfer flight plans to supported avionics.
Another new feature of the Procedure Advisor™ is the ability to see which approaches are most suitable based on current weather conditions, visually preview approaches, and load approaches into your flight plan. This is a really great enhancement, making visualization and selection of approaches easier than ever before.
Lightening fast pre-flight with Delta Downloads™
Downloads are faster and smaller. We now deliver only what has changed each cycle, resulting in a 70% to 90% reduction in download time without compromising chart quality. Taxi charts, IFR and VFR charts, FAA A/FD, and Canada Flight Supplement data are all improved. Delta Downloads™ will phase in automatically for all subscribers over the next few data cycles.
See chart legends with Chart Touch™
You can now view US VFR Sectional and IFR en route chart legend panels directly on the Maps view with a single touch. The new Chart Touch™ action also allows you to rotate through each overlapping chart in turn to maximize the visibility at map boundaries. The behavior of the Chart Touch™ is controlled in the Settings menu.
Flying high? Cabin Altitude Advisor™ is Watching
In the past year, depressurization events or hypoxia have claimed pilots. The Cabin Altitude Advisor™ uses the barometer in the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2 to alert you when the barometric pressure begins to deviate from GPS altitude at an unacceptable rate. The Cabin Altitude Advisor™ is automatically armed and activates when the airplane climbs above 12,500’ MSL and 25,000' MSL.
