Safer, More Efficient Flight Operations

ForeFlight is an indispensable part of your everyday flight operations. When a call comes in, ForeFlight is the first thing pilots look at to check weather, plan the route, evaluate terrain and obstacle hazards, and file the flight plan.

In the air, the moving map display, charts, maps, documents, and airport directory provide all the information a pilot needs to safely conduct the flight.

SET YOUR FLIGHT CREW FREE

ForeFlight is built for the mobile environment. Your pilots are no longer tethered to a desktop or a phone call to get current weather or to amend a flight plan.

BETTER WEATHER DECISION MAKING

On the ground, interactive graphical overlays give pilots the full picture of how weather and TFRs will impact the mission. Seeing current conditions overlaid on the route line helps pilots make better go/no-go decisions.

In the air, the portable Stratus delivers the FAA’s NextGen subscription-free ADS-B weather services and TIS-B traffic targets to the iPad display. An especially cost-effective solution for legacy aircraft without onboard weather.

Seeing weather and traffic conditions ahead enables pilots to make more informed decisions and coordinate with ATC for the most efficient handling when needed—saving time and money.

As a portable electronic device, Stratus does not require any modification to the airframe.
