Airport Charts & Procedures

Associate PDF files with specific airports and procedure types to access them in the Airports Procedures tab and in the Plates view. Add private airport procedures not available from the FAA, noise abatement areas, or custom notes related to your aircraft or operation.

Import geospatial PDF files to take advantage of ForeFlight's capabilities for geo-referenced charts, such as seeing your position on them and Plates on Maps.

Geo-Referenced Charts

Access geo-referenced charts that use the MBtiles or FBtiles formats from the layer selector. You can convert any PDF to those formats using a program like Maptiler, allowing you to import nautical charts, detailed street maps, state park maps, and more. You can also import geospatial PDFs as geo-referenced charts to access them from the layer selector.

Custom Map Layers

Import geographic data files in the KML or GeoJSON formats to display points, lines, shapes, and labels on the map. Use Google My Maps to create your own files, or download them from elsewhere to display the locations of lakes, federal park lands, or the path of a total solar eclipse.

Navigation Data Layers

Associate PDF and HTML documents with custom waypoints to make them viewable from Maps, providing far more information than a simple description. Highlight places of interest linked to informational PDFs, lighthouse locations with associated photographs, and no-fly zones with official government warnings and risk analyses.
