Powerful Planning for High-Performance Aircraft
ForeFlight Performance is a powerful suite of features that simplify complex planning for pilots and flight departments who own, operate, and fly high-performance aircraft. ForeFlight Performance includes a library of detailed aircraft performance profiles that produce accurate flight time and fuel burn, a sophisticated flight planning engine that generates global optimized routes, and a user-friendly interface that simplifies the planning workflow – and it all syncs across your devices so you can plan faster, whenever and wherever it is most convenient.

Built-in ForeFlight Performance Profiles are Ready to Fly
Our in-house performance team builds each aircraft performance profile from the manufacturer’s climb, cruise, and descent performance data. The profiles are defined for multiple altitudes, weights, and temperatures, providing accurate speed and fuel flow data for all conditions. The library contains hundreds of profiles for the most popular turbine aircraft from Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Gulfstream, and more.
Simple, Fast Aircraft Setup
Our library of preconfigured aircraft allows setup in under one minute. Simply search for and select your aircraft, add your tail number, and verify the pre-populated basic aircraft data. Done. All of the complex performance data from your aircraft manual is loaded with a single tap.
Fine Tune with Model Adjustment
If your aircraft performs differently than book, use the model adjustment (or bias) sliders to adjust cruise speed and fuel flow to better match ForeFlight to your aircraft's true performance. Model adjustment is available only for ForeFlight Performance Profiles.
Create Custom By-Altitude Profiles
Don't see your aircraft in our library? Log in to foreflight.com to build your own profile that defines climb, cruise and descent performance data by altitude. Create multiple profiles for each aircraft to support your different flying missions.

Plan & File at Jet Speed
ForeFlight’s planning engine, powered by AviationCloud technology, is a highly advanced solution for providing best-in-class flight planning and autorouting capabilities. The planning engine analyzes current and forecasted wind and temperature data, aircraft performance capabilities, and recently cleared routes to offer a comprehensive list of route options – even for airports without previously flown or preferred routes. Simply select your desired cruise profile and ForeFlight handles the complex calculations, delivering the answers you need to make informed decisions.
Dynamic wind, temperature & weight calculations
The detail and depth of data defined in the aircraft profiles enable our flight planning engine to incorporate the ever-changing wind, temperature, and weight conditions the aircraft experiences throughout a trip. The result is highly accurate flight time and fuel burn calculations that reflect the improved performance over the course of a flight as the aircraft lightens through fuel burn.
Stress-free scenario planning
Need to explore the impact of taking more or less fuel? More passengers than you expected arrive at the airport? With ForeFlight Performance, you can quickly evaluate what-if scenarios with just a few taps. Make adjustments in the fuel and payload fields and ForeFlight automatically recalculates weight, altitude, and fuel requirements – all at jet speed.
Simple Steps for Advanced Planning
ForeFlight’s delightfully easy-to-use interface organizes each step of your flight planning workflow within a single app view: build your route, calculate block fuel, print a detailed navlog to reference during flight, file the flight plan, generate a graphical weather briefing, and receive expected route updates and critical adverse condition alert messages.
Enter departure, destination, and alternate airports.
Select an aircraft and desired cruise profile.
Select a route: AviationCloud optimized, preferred, or previously flown.
Brief, file, print your navlog, and fly.
Powerful Decision Tools
The Route Advisor and the Altitude Advisor help you easily compare your route options. Each route result displays its flight time and fuel burn so that you can make the best route decision for the mission.
Professional-Grade Printable Navlog
Print or email your navlog trip sheet and track actual performance against planned. Includes flight and fuel summary information, TOC, TOD, synthetic waypoints along track, a wind and temperature aloft table for quick reference, and more. Printable navlog is available for all customers.
On Mobile & on the Web
All of your planning activity automatically syncs between mobile devices and the web, keeping all of your devices up to date. Plan using a form or interactive map view. Form fields auto-populate to make planning even more efficient.
Offline Access to Planning Engine
Whether online or offline, access ForeFlight’s powerful flight planning. Great for rerouting in the air or when you don’t have access to an internet connection.

High-Fidelity Fuel & Load Planning
Easily add payload information and modify reserve fuel amounts in the neatly organized form-based Flights view. The trip summary continuously updates as you make adjustments. Automatic structural weight limit checks with visual alert feedback eliminate an overweight takeoff or landing scenario.
Structural Weight Limit Check
Ensures the planned loads result in aircraft weights within the aircraft’s structural limits.
Top-of-Climb Cruise Check
Detects potential hot/high/heavy conditions and recommends a lower initial cruise altitude at which the desired cruise speed can be achieved.
Multiple Fuel Policies
Flexibility to calculate block fuel using a desired fuel strategy. Need to land with 2000 pounds of fuel? Use the landing fuel policy to quickly calculate the block fuel amount to load.
Integrated JetFuelX Fuel Prices
JetFuelX is the simple and fast way to manage your multiple fuel card memberships. With the ForeFlight Business Performance plan, contract fuel prices can be conveniently displayed in ForeFlight Mobile and on the web.
Great for flight departments with more than one airplane, or for aircraft on leaseback that have different fuel discount levels. Associate all your pricing with one aircraft, or individually.
QUICKLY SEARCH & COMPARE
Search prices and compare in real-time with nearby airports. See results in a color-coded list or interactive map view. We timed it – find the lowest price and request a fuel release in 15 seconds.
As your fuel vendors publish new prices, JetFuelX automatically syncs that information so your profiles are always up to date.
Consolidate Your Toolset
In addition to performance-based planning, ForeFlight delivers all-in-one affordable technology to keep your pilots informed and organized and your entire flight department in sync. ForeFlight allows you to consolidate electronic charts and maps, weather, flight plan filing, secure cloud-based document distribution, and device compliance tracking into one elegantly designed platform.
