What’s New

Version 11.3

Big Changes to Documents
Documents take center stage in this release with a new, more flexible interface, support for documents on iPhone, and syncing of documents, bookmarks, and annotations across all your devices.

Enhanced Documents Management
•The new Documents interface makes it easier to find, download, and access documents.
•The Catalog is now a collapsible drawer on the left side of the screen that allows you to quickly move between your custom Binders and “Drives”, a new paradigm for accessing country- and provider-specific documents.
•Drives serve a dual purpose as a place where you can both select which documents to download, and also access those documents after you download them. Binders are no longer required to store your downloaded documents, so you can access documents in the same place as you download them.
•Binders and Drives provide both a tiled view showing a thumbnail of each document, and a condensed list view that only shows each document’s name.
•Drives also support nested folders, allowing you to download documents individually, or select the entire folder for download. This also applies to Cloud Document folders, so any subfolders within your linked cloud storage account will sync to ForeFlight. Cloud Documents are available with Pro Plus plans and above.
•Finally, all documents are now included in ForeFlight’s unified App Search, so you can easily find and view them from other app views.


Documents on iPhone
•The enhanced Documents view is also available on iPhone, with the same organization and features as on iPad.
•The Documents tab takes the place of the Imagery tab on iPhone at the center of the navigation bar, and the Imagery view is now accessible from the top of the More view on iPhone.


Document Syncing
•ForeFlight will now sync annotations, bookmarks, binders, and a document’s position within a binder across all the devices on your account, making it easy to keep all of your documents in order and up to date across your devices.
•Documents that you import to ForeFlight on one device will be available for download across all your devices, and are stored securely in the ForeFlight Cloud to protect against data loss.


GeoPDF Support
•Import your custom procedures and airport diagrams as geospatial PDF files using Content Packs, BYOP folders, or as standalone files.
•Geospatial PDFs behave just like georeferenced charts available through ForeFlight, allowing you to view them in the Airports and Plates views, display them on the map, and see your position on them.


Flight Plan Filing Enhancements
•The Proceed to File button on the Flights view now brings up a filing form modal where you can edit and file your flight plan, replacing the previous half-screen filing form.
•The filing and briefing emails sent by ForeFlight after you file a flight plan are now combined to reduce inbox clutter and centralize information about your flight plans.

Foreflight: Essential and best value in all of aviation!

FF is easily the best app for aviation. I have all others, and they are not bad, some even good (eg GP), but I will not leave home without FF. Connecting to various Garmin devices now makes it a great in flight manager as well. I am glad that emphasis is placed on pre-flight management in this update. While flying multiple aircraft in various conditions, different performances, loads, settings, it is all adjusted on the fly through a pilot centered, intuitive interface. This makes keeping track of all data pertinent to a flight, as well as briefing, filing and tracking the flight as easy as can be. As an app goes, it is not cheap like a 2.99 game, but as an essential, reliable tool it is the cheapest utility around in all of aviation. In a world where we measure things in AMU’s, this app and it’s subscription fees are nothing to cry about, and in my opinion the subscription fee is the least I can contribute to keep this ForeFlight team eager to improve and grow.

My only concern is not related to FF, but more related to the iPad and its very short life cycle before obsolescence. I am already concerned about what will happen when iPads cease to exist. For now, i am including a new iPad every other year to the price of doing business.

We use this daily!

We fly 12 to 18 hours per week with ForeFlight and Stratus 2. ForeFlight has come along way since it’s introduction with synthetic vision, excellent integration with Stratus and so much more. I did get concerned with the previous version as we started having multiple crashes on two different newer iPads daily. We do load multiple waypoint and it seemed like that might have been a factor? I always make sure my iPad has plenty of open SSD space and the newer iPads have 2GB or more RAM, so I wonder if the software rolled out too fast? We’re also very careful about not updating the OS until the all clear is given. I just hope ForeFlight’s team slows down a little on all the bells and whistles. It’s much more crucial for the product to work flawlessly versus having 3D views of airports / etc. All in all ForeFlight is the BEST aviation App on the market and their team is obviously awesome at coding. My concerns and comments here about previous crashes are only because we’re addicted to ForeFlight and never want to see it burdened with issues. The new version seems to be more stable with only the rare crash. It does open back up in seconds right were you left off. Keep up the good work. Thanks ForeFlight!

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: https://youtu.be/7OU3VR2ZziM Please send us an email at team@foreflight.com if we can be of any further assistance.
