What's New in Version 9.0.1

9.0.1

This minor release improves the User Map Shapes feature so that imported KML files no longer require the extension “.ffkml” and the app does not need to be restarted for new shapefiles to appear in the layer selector. It also fixes a bug that disabled ForeFlight’s Apple Watch extension, and includes several other small bug fixes and improvements.

Integrated ForeFlight Checklist Fits Your Flying Workflow

Your familiar paper checklists are transformed into digital templates that fit naturally into your workflow and help you conduct safer flight operations. Interactive progress indicators reduce the amount of time you spend heads down. Start with preconfigured templates or create your own custom checklists. ForeFlight Checklist is a feature of our Basic Plus and Pro Plus subscription plans.

New Glide Advisor™ Helps You Locate a Safe Landing Space

Based on terrain, winds aloft, GPS data (position/altitude), and your aircraft’s best glide speed and ratio, ForeFlight shapes a glide range ring around your ownship icon on the moving map display to help you quickly assess your options if you lose engine power.

More Options for Night Flight with Dark App Theme

Toggle between Light and Dark App Themes. Dark Theme converts the background color to dark blue throughout the app while keeping highlight colors and text easily visible.

Listen to Your Favorite SiriusXM Satellite Radio Stations Inflight

Connect your Bluetooth headset or audio device to the SXAR1 Aviation Receiver and stream XM satellite radio while in the cockpit. Use ForeFlight to browse and select your jam.

Know the Knots with New Surface Winds Layer with SXAR1

ForeFlight pilots flying with the SXAR1 portable Aviation Receiver can now view a model-based, high-resolution analysis of recent surface winds.

Logbook Enhancements: Helpful Aircraft List Details & CFI Currency Tracking

The aircraft list view in your Logbook now displays summary information next to each tail number that includes type code, category/class, gear type, and total hours in that aircraft. It’s a helpful design detail that provides more visibility into your logbook data. CFI renewal tracking is also available.

New Device Disconnect Alert

ForeFlight provides a prominent visual and audio alert if a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi device disconnects during flight. This helpful new alert monitors both portable and panel-mounted avionics.

Customize the Maps View with User Map Shapes

Import and display KML geographic overlay files in ForeFlight allowing you to define specific areas for your custom navigation needs. Ideal for flight schools, search and rescue operations, pipeline patrol, and more.

Customer Reviews

An update that did NOTHING...

Rarely do companies release an update that moves a product backwards. The new foreflight 8 provides little to no progress if any at all. The company has discussed for a long time their improved version 8 feature set however other than the aeronautical apps which are IMHO a less useful version of Jepps VFR/GPS maps, there appears to be little change.

This all said, the most frustrating aspect is the customer service experience and their inability to implement feature requests. While they reply quickly to emails, their "experienced" technical team always provides the same answer that the feature request will be discussed.

I realize that my specific requests are not the benchmark for change, though to release a new version with no apparent change and years of change requests by thousands of pilots, it seems that foreflight is content with simply being a media manager vs a ground breaker in the industry.

I highly suggest looking at other options prior to spending your money on foreflight until the company can recage and do what they did in their inception vs the stagnicity they demonstrated with their latest release.

Long time user

Have been using ForeFlight since 2012. This app is very good with lots of features.
I rarely have problems with the app. Just had my first one last week (April 2017). Customer support called me up and walked me through very quickly. It was user error, and the rep was very good at guiding me through my mistakes and always treated me with respect.
Very good application, soon to get an iPad mini 4 and using ForeFlight on it as well as my iPad 2 and iPhone SE.

Fantastic app

The ForeFlight app is easy to use and keeps getting better with each update. The ForeFlight team is great to work with as well. They are knowledgeable and return emails immediately. They were the only ones who were able to help with my new Garmin GTX-345 ADS-B installation as they knew how to get the attitude to work with the ForeFlight app. I highly recommend the app and the staff.
