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.

Watch our new video for the latest enhancements.


Zoom in to view airport diagrams, complete with runways, taxi labels, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Sink Rate Alert

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

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.

User Waypoints

Users can create custom waypoints simply by tapping on the map or by entering latitude/longitude values. User waypoints are nameable and sync automatically across all devices via ForeFlight Sync.


Easily see the best fuel prices in an area or along a route by toggling on the Fuel map layer. Prices for 100LL and Jet A are plotted on the map and color coded based on affordability for the area.
