ForeFlight for Europe: Set Up Downloads & Aircraft

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.

The last video in our Getting Started series for European subscribers shows how to plan a route on the Maps view, send it to Flights to retrieve a weather briefing and printable Navlog, and file the flight plan with EUROCONTROL. 

IMPORTANT: Remember that ForeFlight uses your aircraft's ICAO filing codes when checking for EUROCONTROL validation, so if you keep getting INVALID routes, check to make sure you entered the right ICAO codes for your aircraft.
