Useful Information at Every Zoom Level

Never lose the details to see the big picture - the right information is there at any zoom level. For example, when viewing the entire United States, major airports and ARTCC boundaries are shown; as you zoom in, altitude markers for Class B, C, and D airspace, Mode C rings, Terminal Radar Service Areas, VORs, waypoints, airways, and smaller airports materialize.

Zoom in to view airport diagrams, complete with runways, taxi labels, hotspots, and FBO locations. See your aircraft position without having to open the published airport chart.


Smart Airway Labels make efficient use of the space between waypoints on an airway. As you zoom in, the labels dynamically expand to display additional information.


Customize the Aeronautical Maps layer using the Map Settings menu. Configure airports, airspace, airways, map themes, text label size, and more.


Simply tap on any Aeronautical Map element – VORs, airways, airports – to view detailed information about that element.

High-Resolution Basemap

ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap depicts ground features and cultural elements in much greater detail for improved inflight reference. Notable improvements include higher-resolution roads and railroads with highway labels, more detailed coastlines, and new terrain peak and mountain pass markers with associated altitudes.

Map Annotations

Write and draw directly on ForeFlight’s map for easier and more convenient note taking. Tap the Annotations button on the left side of the screen to enter Drawing mode. Annotations show up above any Map or Layer and you can easily undo, redo, and clear notes, as well as change the ink and brush properties.

Specify Approach Minimums

Specify an altitude minimum in Procedure Advisor when adding an IFR approach to your route to display the minimum directly on the map for quick reference during final approach. After choosing an approach in Procedure Advisor, enter an approach minimum in the Altitude (MSL) field on the left before adding the approach to your route. Once you add the approach to your route the minimum appears as a prominent magenta label at the very end of the route on the map.

Approach Minimum labels are available with ForeFlight Performance plans.

Map Layers

To better aid pilots in planning and navigation, ForeFlight has over a dozen interactive graphical overlays that give pilots the full picture of how weather and TFRs will impact their mission. Seeing current weather conditions overlaid on the route line helps pilots make better go/no-go decisions.

Terrain & Obstacles

Hazard avoidance features highlight hazardous terrain and obstacles near your aircraft's GPS location.

Stay Alert on the Ground
& in the Air

ForeFlight puts your safety at the forefront by providing audio and visual alerts that give you better situational awareness on the ground and in the air. You can manage all alerts in the app settings menu.


Receive visual and auditory warnings when you approach and enter a runway. Upon entering the runway, you will also hear the length remaining in hundreds of feet. This is a helpful cross-check to ensure you are departing from the correct runway.

Sink Rate Alert

In an emergency situation, the Sink Rate Alert warns you of an excessive descent rate.

TFR Alerts

TFR Alerts warn you when you are approaching or have entered TFR airspace. Alerts are shown (and heard) whether you have the TFR map layer on or off.

500' AGL Alert

This alert lets you know when you have descended through 500’ AGL. Stay aware of your altitude while keeping your eyes outside the aircraft during final approach.

Steer Clear Of TFRs

No more plotting by hand. ForeFlight displays both active and upcoming TFR data in a graphical format right on the map. Future TFRs are yellow, active or soon-to-be active TFRs are red. Tap on a TFR to view the full FAA text.


Figuring out when and where Stadium TFRs are active can be a pain. ForeFlight continuously monitors event schedules for Major League Baseball, the National Football League, NCAA Football, Indy Car, NASCAR Sprint Cup, and Formula 1 and integrates that information into the TFR map layer.
