Takeoff and Landing Performance

Ensure that you can safely take off and land with runway performance calculations for supported piston and turboprop aircraft. ForeFlight uses published runway performance data and current weather conditions to quickly calculate the most important distance and speed metrics for both takeoff and landing, and warns you when the results exceed the selected runway’s limits.

Available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

Built-in Detailed Aircraft Profiles

Our in-house team builds each aircraft model from the manufacturer's climb, cruise, and descent 'book value' performance data. Profiles are defined for multiple altitudes, weights, and temperatures, providing the most accurate ETE and fuel burn for all conditions. The library contains hundreds of profiles for the most popular General Aviation aircraft from Beechcraft, Cessna, Diamond, Mooney, Piper, and more.

Simple, Fast Aircraft Setup

All of the complex performance data from your aircraft manual is loaded with a single tap. Simply search for and select your aircraft, add your tail number, and verify the basic aircraft data. Done.

Fine Tune the Models

If your aircraft performs differently than book, use the model adjustment sliders to better match ForeFlight to your aircraft's true performance.

Create Custom Profiles

Better, Faster, More Accurate Answers

ForeFlight’s planning engine, powered by AviationCloud technology, analyzes current and forecasted wind and temperature data, aircraft performance capabilities, and recent ATC history to offer a comprehensive list of route options – even for airports without previously flown routes. Simply select your desired cruise profile and ForeFlight handles the complex calculations, delivering the answers you need to make informed decisions.

File-Friendly Optimized Autorouting

The easy-to-use Graphical Route Advisor recommends the best route and altitude for your aircraft, and provides you with the highest probability for cleared as filed (which is also helpful for PDC). In addition, EUROCONTROL validated routes are created in a matter of seconds.

Dynamic Route Performance Calculations

The ever-changing wind, temperature, and weight conditions the aircraft experiences throughout a trip are reflected in the highly accurate flight time and fuel burn calculations, including the improved performance over the course of a flight as the aircraft lightens through fuel burn.

Easy Scenario Planning

Need to explore the impact of taking more or less fuel? More passengers than you expected arrive at the airport? Quickly evaluate what-if scenarios with just a few taps and ForeFlight automatically recalculates weight, altitude, and fuel requirements – all at jet speed.

High-Fidelity Fuel & Load Planning

Easily add payload information and modify reserve fuel amounts in the neatly organized form-based Flights view. The trip summary pinned to the top of the view continuously updates as you make adjustments.

Structural Limit Checks

Automatic structural weight limit checks, with visual alert feedback, eliminate an overweight takeoff or landing scenario.

Top-of-Climb Cruise Check

Detects potential hot/high/heavy conditions and recommends a lower initial cruise altitude at which the desired cruise speed can be achieved.

Multiple Fuel Policies

Flexible fuel planning offers a variety of fuel strategies. Need to land with a specific quantity of fuel? Use Landing Fuel policy to quickly calculate block fuel for that outcome.

Send Fuel Orders to Your FBO for Smoother Handling

Submit your fuel order requests to FBOs right from the Flights view as part of your flight planning workflow. With a configured JetFuelX account, you can also request a fuel release from the fuel provider and send a notification email to the FBO in just a few taps.

 Integrated JetFuelX Fuel Prices

JetFuelX simplifies managing your multiple fuel card memberships so you can quickly search, compare, and pinpoint the best fuel price for your trip. With the ForeFlight Performance Plus plan, your contract fuel prices can be conveniently displayed in ForeFlight Mobile and ForeFlight on the web.

Learn More About JetFuelX


Great for flight departments with more than one airplane, or for aircraft on leaseback that have different fuel discount levels. Associate all your pricing with one aircraft, or individually.


Search prices and compare in real-time with nearby airports. See results in a color-coded list or interactive map view. We timed it – find the lowest price and request a fuel release in 15 seconds.


As your fuel vendors publish new prices, JetFuelX automatically syncs that information so your profiles are always up to date.

Never Miss a Meeting with Trip Assistant

Trip Assistant is a simple-to-use planning tool for anyone involved in mission planning – assistants, flight support staff, passengers, and pilots alike. Trip Assistant quickly computes total door-to-door trip time, factoring in drive time, flight times using historical and forecast winds, and fuel stops to create a detailed itinerary showing exactly when you need to leave your home or office in order to arrive on time at your final destination.

Pre-Departure Clearance (PDC) & Digital ATIS

PDC, a service in partnership with Satcom Direct, automates delivery of your IFR departure clearance at over 70 U.S. airports, simplifying operations and reducing frequency congestion. After you register your aircraft, file with ForeFlight and automatically receive your full clearance via email and text message. Current ATIS information is also sent via text and email as well as being available directly in ForeFlight.
