Generate a graphical preflight briefing and file your flight plan directly from the app. Print a professional-grade Navlog for inflight reference.

Interactive weather layers include animated radar, global satellite and winds aloft, global icing, turbulence, and surface analysis, graphical AIR/SIGMETs, flight category, visibility, and more. View decoded METARs, TAFs, and MOS forecasts. Thoughtfully organized Imagery view puts a full range of forecast tools at your fingertips.

Both VFR and IFR operations are covered with all of the essentials required for planning and navigation: data-driven Aeronautical Maps, VFR Sectionals, High/Low Enroute charts, SIDs, STARs, approach and taxi charts, and terrain, satellite, and street map views.

Plates and taxi charts enable the real time display of your GPS location on the chart. They can also be overlaid on the Maps view along with weather and hazards for the ultimate situational awareness.

Plan and fly with more confidence in all conditions and terrain. Top-down-view Hazard Advisor map layer, Terrain Profile View, and 3D Synthetic Vision seamlessly integrate into the map display to depict a clear picture of terrain and obstacle hazards anywhere in the world.

What's New

Version 9.6

Better Preflight Workflow with Pack on Flights
• Now you can Pack right from the Flights view, ensuring you have the charts, weather, NOTAMs, and data needed for flight.
• Pack analyzes your route to determine the data you need, then prompts you to download with a single tap. Packed data is available offline and accessible when in flight.
• Pack also includes Icing and Turbulence map layers for Pro Plus and Performance subscribers, helping you find smoother air while in flight.

Faster, Smarter Routes Options for Your Flights
• For Performance subscribers, the new Recommended Route feature (formerly AviationCloud Autoroute) gives you the best route based on your detailed aircraft performance profile and time/fuel savings, while also accounting for preferred routes, recent ATC cleared routes, and how frequently a given route is assigned. Use Recommended Route for more ‘cleared as filed’ flight plans optimized for your aircraft.
• Smart altitude suggestions for short legs prevent uncomfortably short cruise times at or near the aircraft’s service ceiling, and provide altitudes that ATC is more likely to accept.
• For all customers who File with ForeFlight, expected Route notifications now include “(as filed)” after the route string if the expected route is the same as the one you filed.

Expanded NOTAMs and New Closure Warnings
• A new airport closure warning banner indicates when airports are closed by NOTAM.
• A new runway closure warning banner indicates when runways are closed by NOTAM.
• Airport and runway closure warnings are updated in flight when connected to Stratus, Scout, or Garmin ADS-B In accessories.
• European NOTAMS are now included.

New Flight Log Streamlines Your Record-Keeping
• The Flight Log simplifies your post-flight data entry and provides an easy way to compare planned performance with actual results.
• Easily capture fuel at shutdown, start/end meter times, and Out/Off/On/In times right in the Flights view.
• ForeFlight calculates and displays block, flight, and meter times for quick reference.
• Ending meter times are carried over to the next flight with the same aircraft as optional quick-fill values.

Temperature and Dewpoint Added to MOS Forecasts
• In addition to TAFs, ForeFlight displays extended forecast data for over 2,000 US airports using MOS (Model Output Statistics) weather prediction models.
• MOS in ForeFlight now includes temperature and dewpoint values and ranges, when available, for more informed flight planning.

Updates to ForeFlight on the Web
• For a more seamless experience between web and mobile, the Maps page on the web now has a combined Favorite/Recent Route button with Edit/Clear function.
• For Performance subscribers, taxi fuel is now included in the total fuel burn values shown when viewing Route and Altitude Advisors.
• Route Advisor now prompts you to convert metric flight levels to feet when a route includes them.

Also in this release:
• New “translated text” setting for Legacy Briefing format
• FBO information included in printable Navlog
• Support for %MAC entry in Weight & Balance for Performance subscribers
• New ICAO Equipment codes for oceanic flights: P1, P2, P3

Foreflight: ruining an app one update at a time


This is the worst update foreflight has ever made. They took something so streamlined, quick, and easy as flight planning and made it cumbersome and ungainly. It's no longer simple to make a few little changes and see how it affects the flight. You have to load and create performance profiles. It's like they never even considered you might fly a different speed or TAS at different altitudes. Not to mention not everyone wants to waste time with creating a whole new profile when you just want to see how changing one number changes the flight. AND not everyone only flies one airplane! These last two updates ruined the best thing about foreflight. Now they've also ruined your map screen. All the colors have shifted and seem to be permanently stuck on night mode. No setting will change it back. Now you can barely read TAFs and metars in the daylight. On top of everything else the app crashes at least once a flight now, and if it doesn't crash you have to restart it any time it loses communication with your ADS-B unit because it won't reconnect or show any data or even the device unless you restart the app. Talk about going backwards.

Developer Response

Hi Wastintime - we appreciate your feedback. In ForeFlight Mobile EFB 9.1 you can adjust your aircraft’s performance profile data for a flight by typing space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor. We created this Quick Tip video tutorial that shows how: Please send us an email at if we can be of any further assistance.

5 Star App, 6 Star Customer Service


I’ve been using ForeFlight for several years now and the app has always been at the forefront of innovation and usefulness. If it doesn’t quite have everything you could possibly want, just wait a bit, it will probably be in the next update.

As for their customer service, it cannot get any better. Problems are few are far between, but when they arise their customer service team is on top of it. Case in point, we had a pop up trip to Mexico and their Mexico/Latin America rep Albert has not only helped me with getting the proper subscriptions, he as also helped us other solving some pilot certification issues with the Mexican authorities.

Great App, Great People, you cant ask for more than that.

Weather bugs go unfixed, Apple Watch Deleted


If you have multiple weather sources connected, like LTE, a GDL 39 etc... Weather will often not display. If one source does not have data, then it will block data from all other sources. The only way to get weather is to turn off the equipment, or connections one at a time in trial and error fashion.

Got an Apple Watch to use with Foreflight, then found they deleted the advertised function in an update.

Wish I could use Foreflight, however the lack of weather forces me to use other products that do not have this bug. Have no problem with other weather apps when multiple weather sources are connected. I did report this bug both in person at Oshkosh 5 months ago, and via email.
