Support / FAQs
¶ How much does ForeFlight Mobile cost to download? How much is a subscription?
The ForeFlight Mobile app is always a free download from the app store. A subscription, however, is required to access all the features of the app.
We offer two subscription plans for individuals: Basic Plus and Pro Plus. Both plans include data for one geographical region, such as the US or Canada, and a second region can easily be added to either plan for $100.
The Basic Plus plan is $99.99, and includes all the essential ForeFlight features, including VFR sectionals and High and Low IFR Enroute charts, extensive flight planning capabilities, flight plan filing and briefing (including ForeFlight Graphical Briefing), aviation weather information, and more. The Basic Plus plan also includes the Logbook and Weight & Balance features.
The Pro Plus plan is $199.99, and has everything that comes with the Basic Plus plan, as well as more advanced features such as geo-referenced plates and airport diagrams, Plates on Maps, Hazard Advisor™, flight plan notifications, route Profile View, and Cloud Documents, which allows you to sync documents you’ve uploaded through ForeFlight Manage to all your devices. Finally, the Pro Plus plan includes Synthetic Vision for iPad, providing a detailed 3D terrain view. When connected to an AHRS receiver such as the Stratus 2/2S your view includes pitch/roll.
Your 1-Pilot ForeFlight subscription allows you to use the app simultaneously on one iPad, one iPhone, and one iPod Touch, plus a second iPad as backup. Please see How many devices can I use my subscription on? for further information.
For business subscribers, we offer the Business Pro plan at $149.99 per license, with a minimum purchase of two licenses. Each license supports one iPad and one iPhone. Business Pro includes advanced features such as geo-referenced plates and airport diagrams, Plates on Maps, Hazard Advisor™, flight plan notifications, route Profile View, and Cloud Documents. Added capabilities are also provided in ForeFlight Manage, including extensive device management and chart and document compliance features, allowing an administrator to remove devices from the account, check that charts and app versions are up to date, and distribute documents to the entire fleet through the cloud.
Existing customers who switch or upgrade to another plan through the ForeFlight website are charged only the pro-rated difference between the plan they are upgrading from and the plan they are upgrading to. Note: Upgrades made using the in-app purchase button do not have the price pro-rated, but instead have the expiration date extended by a pro-rated amount.
¶ What is your subscription refund policy?
ForeFlight Mobile subscriptions are non-refundable. For your convenience, we do offer a one time 30-day free trial for new customers to allow evaluation of ForeFlight Mobile before buying. If you downgrade from a higher value plan to a lower value plan, then you will receive a store credit for the pro-rated unused balance.
¶ Does my subscription automatically renew? How do I cancel?
If you purchased a subscription through our website, it is set up to renew automatically. You can change this anytime using your online account management tool, ForeFlight Manage. Simply sign into your account and click on the 'Subscription' tab and then click 'Disable Auto-Renew'. You can also send us an email and we can disable auto-renew for you.
If you purchased a subscription inside the app, then your subscription will not renew automatically. 2 weeks before your subscription comes due for renewal, we'll send you an email to let you know. If you decide to renew, you can purchase inside the app or directly from us through our Subscription Purchase Page. If you choose not to renew, you don't need to do anything.
If you choose not to renew we'd appreciate an email to let us know how we can do better to meet your needs.
¶ What happens if I buy before my 30 day trial is finished?
Per Apple's policy, subscriptions are new purchases and do not include any remaining time in a trial. ForeFlight subscriptions unlock features not available in the trial, like bulk downloading, so remaining time in your trial is not applied to your new subscription. If you buy a one-year subscription, it will end 12 months after the day you purchase.
¶ Can I still use the app after my subscription expires?
No, you must have a valid subscription to continue using the app.
¶ How do I know when it's time to renew?
One week before your subscription will expire, we'll display a message inside the app letting you know that it's time to renew. We'll also send you an email reminder. You can then purchase a subscription extension inside the app or on the web.
¶ Why does the app require a subscription?
A subscription model is required in order to continuously deliver high quality radar, charts, and terminal procedure information.
¶ Do you offer group pricing?
Yes - we offer group pricing for our Business Pro plan when ordering a subscription for five or more pilots. Perfect for flight departments and enterprises. View the plans page for businesses to place an order. The price breaks display automatically in your cart on check out. If you have any questions about our Business plans, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
¶ I got a new iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. How do I move my subscription to the new device?
