Identify potential hazards along your route and establish a mental picture of final approach with a toggleable Obstacles layer in 3D View. Every view within the 3D Suite supports obstacles: 3D Airports, 3D Anywhere, 3D Preview, and 3D Review, and ForeFlight displays three types of obstacles: buildings (shaped like rectangles), towers (shaped like cylinders), and windmills. Enabling Night Mode in 3D lights are red by default, but may also be white. 3D Preview helps you identify potentially hazardous obstacles within 1 nautical mile of your route by highlighting them with yellow or red stripes based on your current Hazard Altitude settings (1000’ vertically for yellow and 100’ vertically for red, by default).
3D View with Obstacles is included in ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

Edit your recorded Track Logs to more accurately reflect the beginning and end of your flights and automatically update Logbook entries. Enter Edit mode by tapping the Edit button in the bottom-right corner of the Track Log Graph, then drag the blue bars on the left and right sides of the graph to move the track log’s start and end points. Track Log editing is non-destructive, so you can revert your changes or make additional edits at any time simply by tapping the Edit button again. If a Track Log is associated with a Logbook draft entry, trimming the track log will automatically update the auto-filled fields in the Logbook entry.
Packing before your flight now requires a smaller download for weather by limiting the extent of the Icing, Turbulence, and Cloud Coverage layers downloaded to only areas that overlap with your route. Both the U.S.-only and Global versions of each layer are packed for flights within the U.S., giving you more forecast information for inflight reference while drastically cutting down the required download size.
