New: Graphical Route Advisor, Performance-based Step Climb, Flight Notifications, andĀ More

ForeFlight Mobile version 9.3 is now available on the App Store.

Plan Faster with Graphical Route Advisor
The Route Advisor tool now gives you a visual preview of all route options on an interactive map. Tap through the list to highlight each route on the map, then tap “Select Route” to add it to your flight plan. Simple and easy. The interactive Route Preview map also appears in the Flights view form-based planner to provide a quick visual reference of your route. Your departure and destination airports are shown overlaid on a simple basemap.

Performance-based Step Climb Legs in Navlog
ForeFlight’s performance planning now supports step-climbs. The flight planning engine calculates the highest possible initial altitude, then automatically creates step-climb legs as the aircraft weight decreases. Step-climb information is detailed in the printable Navlog, accessible from the Flights view by tapping the Navlog button. The step climb leg information is available in Performance Plus, Business Performance, and MFB Performance plans.Learn more about ForeFlight Performance planning.

Flight Notifications
After filing your flight plan in ForeFlight, you will receive a push notification to your device when ATC issues a revised expected route and when adverse weather conditions arise that may affect your flight.
Access weather alerts in the Messages tab in the Flights view. Flight Notifications are available to customers on all ForeFlight plan levels who file flight plans via ForeFlight.  

Flight Planning Workflow Enhancements
The “Add Next Flight” button in the Flights view makes it faster and easier to plan multi-leg flights by carrying forward departure, aircraft details, payload, fuel policy, and more. In addition, you can now export your flight plan in the official ICAO format and print, email, share via AirDrop, or save a copy in ForeFlight Documents.

Faster, Sharper, Data-Driven Basemap & New Shaded Terrain Display
The ForeFlight map engine has a significantly upgraded basemap, which now renders more quickly, smoothly, and with sharper depiction of features such as major roads, railways, national parks, and state and national boundaries.
