ForeFlight Mobile URL Schemes

ForeFlight Mobile supports URL-based methods of loading views and data in the app. To use these, you create a URL with the proper format and then click on that URL within an app that supports link-tapping, such as the iOS Mail app.

 

Maps

To launch ForeFlight Mobile and bring up a route on the Maps view, you can use a URL starting with this:

foreflightmobile://maps/search?q=

After the q= you can provide any search string that would work in-app, such as:

foreflightmobile://maps/search?q=KJGG+ORD+KOSH+165+16+8000

When specifying speeds, altitudes, or fuel burns, you can include the units after the specified value.

Speed: mph; kts
Fuel burn: gph; pph; lph; kgph
Altitude: ft; m

If a unit is not included, the app's current default unit for that entry will be used.

foreflightmobile://maps/search?q=KJGG+ORD+KOSH+125mph+12gph+8000

or

foreflightmobile://maps/search?q=KOSH+GEP+KFCM+130kts+410kgph+4000ft

You can also specify an aircraft tail number corresponding to an Aircraft Profile in ForeFlight Mobile:

foreflightmobile://maps/search?q=KAUS+ELA+KSGR+165kts+20.5gph+14000ft+N12345
