Enabling Terrain
Having trouble finding the Terrain layer in ForeFlight 8? It just moved next door to the Map Settings menu. You can also recreate the World Map from the Map Settings menu by turning on Place Labels.
Basemap and Terrain Improvements

The ForeFlight map engine has a significantly upgraded basemap, which now renders more quickly, smoothly, and with sharper depiction of features such as major roads, railways, national parks, and state and national boundaries. There’s also a new “Shaded Terrain” option, which uses grayscale shading to depict terrain, providing the same level of detail as the colored terrain option with less visual distraction.

In the Map Settings menu, choose from multiple presentations: Colored, Shaded, or None.

High Resolution Basemap

ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap depicts ground features and cultural elements in much greater detail for improved inflight reference.

The default basemap provides a basic depiction of major roads and urban areas, while the High Resolution Basemap dramatically increases the level of detail, exposing minor roads and individual railway lines, increasing the resolution of coastlines and urban areas, and highlighting national parks and forests in green. The High Resolution Basemap also adds terrain peak markers with altitudes so you can easily identify the highest points in an area. You can disable these within Terrain settings in the Map Settings menu.

Organized Track Systems

Organized Track depictions in ForeFlight provide a valuable reference for pilots who utilize these track systems. Organized Tracks are available on mobile and the web with ForeFlight’s Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.

ForeFlight displays three different track systems: The North Atlantic Organized Track System, the Pacific Organized Track System, and the Australian Organized Track Structure. Individual tracks are color-coded based on direction: East-bound tracks are purple and West-bound tracks are green. Zoom in to the start of each track to see labels for the track’s name and direction. Each waypoint in the track is also labeled.

Learn more about ForeFlight's Performance plans here.

Scheduled Flight Search

ForeFlight now allows you to search for aircraft tail numbers, call signs, and flight numbers on the Maps view to see recently filed flight plans.

Internet Traffic via FlightAware

Stream live global aircraft traffic directly in ForeFlight with the Internet Traffic feature. In partnership with FlightAware, ForeFlight allows you to view airborne traffic around the globe, and ground traffic at thousands of airports worldwide, to help you gauge airport activity like active arrivals and runways, see how ATC vectors traffic around weather, or assist with planespotting on the ground. Internet Traffic is included in all ForeFlight subscription plans.

Global Airspace Details

ForeFlight provides advanced global airspace details for FIRs, UIRs, and other airspace types, with important information about frequencies, cruise altitudes, and operational notes.

Tap-hold anywhere on the map to open the Add to Route window. The names and altitude ranges of any airspace at that location appears in the Airspace section. Tap on each name to highlight the airspace on the map. Tap the Details button to view more in-depth information about the airspace.

Automatic Airspace Highlighting

Airspace Highlighting in ForeFlight helps declutter the map and keeps you aware of the airspace affecting your route.

Available as part of ForeFlight’s data-driven Aeronautical map layer (available with ForeFlight "Plus" subscription plans), Airspace Highlighting changes the contrast of airspace boundaries based on whether your route intersects the airspace at your planned altitude. Airspace that you won’t pass through is dimmed, and airspace that you will pass through or pass near is highlighted.

Hide Airspace by Altitude

You can declutter ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map by hiding any airspace above a selected altitude, making it easier to focus on airspace closer to you. Combined with other airspace features like Auto Highlight and selectable airspace types, customizing the map to show only the most relevant airspace is easier than ever.

Aeronautical Maps Enhancements
ForeFlight 8.2 brings the first big update to the global data-driven Aeronautical Maps since their introduction with airspace altitudes, ARTCC frequency stamps, Mode C rings, Class E surface areas, TRSAs, SATRs, and US ADIZ. Aeronautical Maps are available as part of ForeFlight's Basic Plus, Pro Plus, and Business Pro subscription plans, and as an add-on to other plans. Visit foreflight.com/pricing to see what other features are offered on these plans and to upgrade.
Smart Airway Labels
In ForeFlight's Aeronautical Maps, Smart Airway Labels provide at-a-glance information about airways in your route. When your route includes one or more airways, labels appear along each airway segment. As you zoom in the labels expand to show more information, including the airway’s name, MEA, MOCA, if the segment has one, and the magnetic bearing. You can disable airway labels by tapping map settings and turning off Route Labels. Smart Airway Labels are just one more way to get useful information from ForeFlight without having to dig for it.
Global Procedure Advisor

All ForeFlight customers can now access international departures, arrivals, and approaches using Procedure Advisor, expanding the scope of ForeFlight’s global planning capabilities.

These global flight planning features are further enhanced by adding Jeppesen’s industry-leading charts to your ForeFlight account. Check out our other videos on purchasing Jeppesen charts through ForeFlight and linking an existing Jeppesen account to learn more.

Weather Layer Time Slider

ForeFlight’s radar and satellite layers now use an interactive time slider tool that provides more control when viewing and animating weather timestamps.

Icing, Turbulence, and Surface Analysis Layers

ForeFlight’s weather capabilities now include five new layers for icing, turbulence, and surface analysis forecasts, available on Pro Plus, Performance Plus, and Business Performance plans. The Icing and Turbulence layers each have a US and global option, and the Surface Analysis layer provides a global view of isobars and associated pressure readings, and a more detailed view of pressure centers, fronts, troughs, and other features for North America. All five of the new layers are also available on ForeFlight’s web application.

Distance Rings

OLD VIDEO: This video was made before the "More" tab was redesigned from a single page to a pull-out menu, but all of the capabilities you access from "More" are the same as they were before. Visit the ForeFlight Mobile Pilot's Guide.

Keep an eye on how far you are from nearby airports, obstacles, and landmarks using distance rings. You can set the rings to automatically grow and shrink as you change zoom level, or set them to display flight times rather than distances. This simple tool is a must-have for maximizing inflight situational awareness.

TFR Alerts
TFR Alerts enhance your inflight situational awareness by warning you of nearby TFRs, whether or not the TFR layer is selected. If ForeFlight detects that you will enter or pass near a TFR within the next five minutes, it will give you a visual and auditory alert. Alerts are also triggered if you enter a TFR, or fly above or below a TFR at a nearby altitude. You can adjust settings related to TFR alerts by tapping More, then Settings, then scroll down to Alerts.
New In-Flight Alerts
ForeFlight offers new alerts to keep you aware on the ground and in the sky. The Runway Proximity Advisor now provides the length of runway remaining as you taxi on to a runway. Two new in-flight alerts also improve situational awareness in the air - the Sink Rate alerts lets you know when your downward vertical speed becomes excessive, and the 500' AGL alert provides a simple callout when you descend past 500' AGL.
Weather Frequency Callout
Checking your destination airport’s weather is an important step in any pre-landing checklist. Like a helpful co-pilot, ForeFlight automatically displays the weather frequency as you near the airport.
Device Disconnect Alert

Devices that provide wireless inflight data like GPS and weather to your iPad can sometimes disconnect, whether due to a dead battery, connection issues, or human error. Whatever the reason for the loss of signal, the Device Disconnect Alert allows you to quickly take steps to restore the connection or switch to an alternative data source.

Add Jeppesen Charts to your ForeFlight Subscription

ForeFlight customers can now add Jeppesen’s industry-leading charts and associated documents to their subscription with a simple online purchase, then download and view those charts in ForeFlight.

If you already have a Jeppesen chart subscription or want to purchase Jeppesen charts for a multi-pilot account, check out our other video on linking an existing Jeppesen account to ForeFlight.

Link an Existing Jeppesen Subscription

ForeFlight customers who already have a Jeppesen chart subscription can now activate that subscription in ForeFlight to access their charts. If you don’t have a subscription through Jeppesen and are interested in adding their charts, check out our other video on purchasing Jeppesen charts through ForeFlight.

This video also covers the activation process for multi-pilot accounts, which must be done on ForeFlight’s web application. Account managers wishing to add Jeppesen charts must purchase them through Jeppesen, not ForeFlight. To start the conversation, email foreflight@jeppesen.com.

Worldwide Data-Driven Jeppesen Enroute Charts

Jeppesen’s global enroute charts are now available in ForeFlight Mobile for all customers who have purchased or linked Jeppesen chart coverages. No matter what Jeppesen coverage you have, you can download the entire set of global VFR and IFR enroute charts, at no additional cost and with no setup or configuration required.

Jeppesen enroute charts are not available for the following iOS devices: iPad Mini 1, iPad 2, iPad 3, and iPhone 5 and below.
