Profile view in ForeFlight now depicts airspace along your route, providing you with valuable information for flight planning and inflight use beyond terrain and obstacle avoidance. Profile view is available with Pro subscriptions and above.
Performance profiles in ForeFlight make it easy to set up aircraft performance data for different power settings, but you can also adjust performance data for a flight without using performance profiles.
Just type space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor at the end of the route string, using standard abbreviations to indicate units for speeds and fuel flow, such as KTS for knots, MPH for miles per hour, GPH for gallons per hour, and PPH for pounds per hour.
ForeFlight will use any values you add this way to calculate performance results instead of the performance profiles. The performance profile field on the left will show the new values in parentheses to indicate this temporary override. If you delete the new values in the Flight Plan Editor, ForeFlight will revert to using the values in the performance profile.
Being able to quickly specify different performance values right in the Maps view provides valuable flexibility when planning a flight.
This webinar event (recorded May 2016) is an advanced ForeFlight course. Dominik walks you through both VFR and IFR features of the app from a Canadian perspective. You will learn how to use the app to its fullest from planning to inflight navigation. Pilots at any level will learn something new, however this course is beyond beginner level and is geared towards pilots who have at least some working knowledge of the app.
The first two things you should do after installing ForeFlight are select the charts and data that you want to download and create aircraft profiles that you will use for flight planning.
IMPORTANT: ForeFlight uses your aircraft's ICAO filing codes to check routes you plan for EUROCONTROL validity, so if you don't add filing codes then most routes will be INVALID.
Ryan McBride, ForeFlight's lead product designer, walks you through the basics of ForeFlight, from choosing and buying an iPad, to navigating the different "views" in the app, to planning simple flight plans. If you're just getting started with ForeFlight, this course is for you. If you already know the basics of ForeFlight and want to explore some of the more advanced features, check out our Power Users course here: https://foreflight.com/support/video-library/watch/?v=power-users-course
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.
To further streamline your planning workflow on Flights, you’ll find a quick access button to Pack directly below the Flight Log. Just like the ‘suitcase’ button on the Maps view, tap ‘Pack and it will analyze your route and package up all of the charts, data, NOTAM, and weather information (including Icing and Turbulence for Pro Plus and Performance Plus customers) you’ll need to access offline during your flight.
