Distance Rings

Nov. 14, 2016   

 
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.
Managing Downloads
Before you take off, be sure to download all the charts, maps, and information you will need for your flight. This video shows you how to do this.
Improved Planning Features

ForeFlight now offers an enhanced flight planning workflow thanks to improvements to aircraft, the Maps view flight plan editor, and the File & Brief view, which is now called “Flights”.

This video is for ForeFlight customers with subscription plans other than Performance Plus, including the original plans and the Basic Plus and Pro Plus plans. If you have the Performance Plus plan, or want to see what is different with that plan, check out our Performance video series.

Using the Airports View
The Airports view is your all-in-one source for any kind of information about airports. From current and forecast weather to runways, procedures, and FBOs, the Airports view is one of the most important places in ForeFlight when it comes to flight planning.
Helpful Web Features
ForeFlight on the web includes helpful features that enable fast flight planning from your desktop browser.
Pack For Your Flight
Pack is like a trip kit and ensures you'll never be caught in the air without the charts, maps, NOTAMs, and other important data you need. Pack analyzes your route and queues up what is missing from your device - download everything to your iPad or iPhone with a single tap. Charts downloaded with Pack can be found in the Downloads view and deleted after a flight, and more temporary data like weather and fuel prices are automatically removed after reconnecting to Wi-Fi.

ForeFlight Checklist integrates one of the most important inflight tools at your disposal into the app you already use for every stage of flight, reducing cockpit clutter and providing an intuitive, simple interface. Checklist is included with our Basic Plus and Pro Plus subscription plans, or as an add-on with other plans. Upgrade at foreflight.com/pricing.
