ForeFlight + Jeppesen Partner to Bring Jeppesen Charts to ForeFlight
Jeppesen's global charts, terrain, obstacles, and NavData® are coming to ForeFlight Mobile – your all-in-one solution for planning, briefing, filing, flying, and logging flights. We are excited to announce this partnership that is truly greater than the sum of its charts. Our long-term strategic alliance with Jeppesen will advance the development and delivery of innovative products and services faster than either organization could deliver on its own.

Hazard Advisor Altitude Preview
Manually control Hazard Advisor’s altitude before a flight to find a minimum altitude route around terrain, then revert to Auto mode during a flight to lock Hazard Advisor to your actual altitude.
Hazard Advisor is available with Pro Plus subscription plans and above.
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.
IFR Flying in Canada
Join ForeFlight Pilot Support Team member Adrian Tegler to see how ForeFlight makes filing an IFR flight plan in Canada faster and easier. Adrian will demonstrate features that enhance your safety and awareness during planning, inflight, and post-flight such as Alternate Advisor to easily find an alternate airport, Profile View to identify potential hazards like terrain, obstacles, and forecast weather along your route, and much more.
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.
Per Leg Altitudes in Profile
Plan enroute altitude changes around terrain, weather, or airspace and visualize them in Profile View, with the option to start or end a climb or descent at a specified waypoint. Profile View is included in Pro Plus subscription plans and above.
Route Line in Profile View
ForeFlight’s Profile View offers a side-on perspective showing your route line and inflight progress in relation to terrain, obstacles, and airspace, supplementing the top-down map view and improving your situational awareness. Profile view is included in ForeFlight Pro plans and above.
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.
Traffic & Glance Mode in Synthetic Vision
ForeFlight’s Synthetic Vision feature now provides even more situational awareness with integrated ADS-B traffic depictions and a 360-degree interactive Glance Mode. Synthetic Vision is available with the Pro Plus subscription plan and above, and as an add-on to Business plans.
To use Synthetic Vision, make sure you select and download high-resolution terrain for whichever regions you plan to fly in, using the settings menus at the top of More - Downloads. Synthetic Vision can double as a backup attitude display when you connect to an AHRS-capable receiver, but that isn’t required to use Synthetic Vision or either of the new features in this video.
