    iPad Setup Tips

    This video covers some basic iPad settings we recommend to get the best experience from ForeFlight Mobile.

    Mountain Passes & More in High Resolution Basemap

    ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap includes Jeppesen-sourced terrain and cultural elements such as mountain passes, highway labels, and more for improved inflight reference.

    The Basemap is what you see with no other charts or maps other than the Aeronautical Map enabled, and depicts terrain, roads, urban lighting, and more. Download the High Resolution Basemap for any region in More - Downloads.

    Multimode Timer

    ForeFlight's versatile Multimode Timer is a great way to set inflight reminders for fuel tank switching, time yourself during holds and other procedures, or assist with any other time-based activities during every flight.

    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.
    Operational Note Flags

    Easily find and review operational notes affecting your route from start to finish with Operational Note Flags, available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

    Plate Flight Binders

    Quickly gather, organize, and access the plates you need for an entire flight using Flight Binders in the Plates view. Featuring a streamlined workflow and major time-saving automations, Flight Binders simplify both your preflight planning and inflight access to procedure plates so you can focus on flying.

    Quick-Access Airspace Frequencies

    Easily locate frequencies for many kinds of controlled airspace on ForeFlight’s Maps view for quick inflight access. 

    Tap-hold anywhere on the map to open the Add to Route popup, which lists any airspaces at the location you tapped. Those that have at least one associated frequency will include the frequency and its name at the bottom of that airspace’s summary, which you can tap to highlight the airspace on the map. If an airspace has more than one associated frequency it will indicate the number that are available. Tap the Details button to view these additional frequencies, as well as other information about that airspace. If there are more than four frequencies, tap All Frequencies at the bottom of the Communications sections to see the full list. Any frequencies designated as Secondary include a note indicating this.

    Synthetic Vision on iPhone

    ForeFlight’s advanced hazard awareness capability and backup attitude indicator is now available on the iPhone, and it looks fantastic! See detailed 3D terrain, obstacles, and runways in full screen Portrait or Landscape mode, and pair with an AHRS-capable ADS-B receiver like Sentry or compatible Garmin equipment for dynamic backup attitude and traffic display. The iPhone also supports Glance Mode, allowing you to swipe within Synthetic Vision to view terrain and traffic in any direction.

    Synthetic Vision is included in Pro Plus subscriptions and above.

    Taxi Routing

    Chart a course to or from the runway with an interactive and contextually-aware Taxi Route editor, available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

    Taxi Routing is the inaugural feature in ForeFlight Labs, a shifting collection of cutting-edge features that you can enable in More - Account. This section is only visible if one or more of the features in Labs are available for your subscription plan.
