Join Us For Spirit of Aviation Week!

Just because we can't meet in person doesn't mean we can't celebrate the World's Greatest Aviation Event. From July 21 through July 25, check out one of our daily educational forums, participate in giveaways, and keep the spirit of aviation alive from the comfort of your home. 

EAA In 2020

With the cancellation of Airventure in Oshkosh this year, EAA will be hosting a Spirit of Aviation Week on July 21-25th. In this virtual expo, exhibitors will be offering product showcases, brochures, forums, workshops, and more. Join us for daily forums and givaways as we celebrate the spirit of aviation.

CAN YOU XCONNECT THE DOTS?

In celebration of EAA's Spirit of Aviation Week, ForeFlight invites you to participate in our XConnect The Dots contest for the opportunity to win amazing prizes!

HOW DO I PLAY?

Every day during from July 21 - 25, ForeFlight will release daily clues on our social media channels. These clues will point to specific airports in the US - connect the airports in ForeFlight to produce the shape of a number or letter on the map. At the end of the week, they'll spell out a phrase. 

HOW DO I WIN?

Once you have figured out the answer for that day, send it to us via social media by tagging us or using the hashtag #FFXConnect. You'll then be entered in our daily prize drawing to win a $200 ForeFlight Gift Card!

If you participate every day of the week and are able to solve the phrase, you will be entered in our grand prize drawing to win a $300 ForeFlight Gift Card, a Sentry ADS-B Receiver, and other ForeFlight swag!

3D Approach Preview

3D Preview displays markers for each waypoint in your route, including labeled approach fixes, allowing you to better visualize every step of your approach down to the runway. 3D Preview also features an interactive navlog, allowing you to view each waypoint and the distances between them and quickly jump to any leg in the flight. 3D Preview is included in ForeFlight Performance plans.

Marked Positions

Drop markers along your route during a flight to mark points of interest or comply with position plotting requirements, then view or share the marked positions after the flight. Each marker automatically captures your GPS coordinates, altitude, speed, and allows you to record additional notes or rename the marker. Marked Positions are included in an active track log recording and can be viewed after the flight in the Track Log view, or in the Flights view if any planned flight matches the time frame during which you marked any positions. Marked Positions is included in ForeFlight Performance plans.
