An Essential Task Made Easy

ForeFlight Runway Analysis simplifies and expedites your flight planning workflow and delivers trustworthy performance results based on manufacturer data. Sporting an intuitive and streamlined interface built directly into the Flights view, Runway Analysis incorporates data you’ve already entered to speed up its calculations and give you the critical information you need to make a Go/No-Go decision.

Runway Analysis Support & FAQs

Watch the video

Accurate, Automated, Integrated

Trustworthy data and powerful software converge to create a Runway Analysis capability that anyone can use.

OEM-sourced for Reliability

All aircraft models available with Runway Analysis are built entirely from OEM-provided data in accordance with AFM guidelines.

Automation Keeps it Simple

ForeFlight’s sophisticated performance engine handles all the number crunching so you can focus on the results that matter.

Conveniently Integrated

Runway Analysis fits seamlessly into ForeFlight’s existing flight planning workflow to maximize efficiency and produce consistent results.

Obstacle Analysis

At the heart of ForeFlight Runway Analysis is the complex Obstacle Analysis, which incorporates terrain and obstacles into its max takeoff weight calculations to guarantee clearance.

Engine Out Procedures

Plan with the default Straight Out procedure or optimize your weight margins with RNAV procedures developed by ForeFlight's team.

Additional Obstacles

Manually add temporary obstacles from NOTAMs to ensure the calculation incorporates all potential hazards.

Safety-Enhancing Warnings

ForeFlight provides a number of warning and error messages to let you know when the calculated results exceed the aircraft’s or runway’s limits, including aircraft-specific alerts for invalid takeoff or landing configurations or overweight warnings.

Emergency Return Included

A fully-featured Landing Analysis capability built into the Takeoff Analysis allows you to evaluate Return-To-Base scenarios using different runways and aircraft configurations to determine the best course of action in case of an emergency. ForeFlight provides warnings for exceeding brake energy or weight limits to help you determine the risks of each scenario.

Currently-Supported Models

We're working closely with major OEMs to enable support for the most widely flown turbine aircraft in Business and General Aviation, with many more models coming in the near future. Contact our Sales team if you have any questions about currently-supported aircraft and future additions.

Dispatch Integration

ForeFlight Dispatch seamlessly integrates Runway Analysis calculations into its flight planning workflow, allowing flight planners and pilots to incorporate these essential calculations into their flight plans and release the results to assigned crew members. Dispatch provides even more robust automation features than the mobile app, such as a checkbox to automatically select the optimal runway and EOP to maximize takeoff weight, as well as a mini-map for viewing each EOP's ground track.

Summary Document

View, share, and save a detailed breakdown of your Takeoff and Landing Analyses to assist with scenario planning and record-keeping. The Summary details all inputs and outputs to the analysis, including the text of the selected Engine Out Procedure, and also compares results under different weather and runway inputs so you can quickly gauge the feasibility of each combination.

Landing Factors

Easily comply with your Opspec’s landing allowance requirements by setting a Landing Factor to be multiplied by the calculated landing distance. ForeFlight provides preset factors corresponding to 60% (1.67, 1.92) or 80% (1.25, 1.44) of usable runway requirements, and also supports entering a custom factor.

Easy Scenario Planning

Rest easy when plans or conditions change. ForeFlight automatically pulls weather data from the most recent METAR, TAF, MOS, or general forecast at each airport to dial in performance calculations, and all environmental factors are user-editable for easy customization. See how your takeoff margins respond to a 10° OAT rise, or check climb performance from a balked landing in icing conditions.

WEBINAR: See Runway Analysis in Action

Join ForeFlight CEO Tyson Weihs and other ForeFlight staff to learn how much Runway Analysis can help pilots improve their flight planning workflow. This webinar will include a complete walkthrough of the Runway Analysis workflow using a Citation jet as an example. It details the interface and provides setup tips and thoughtful commentary from Tyson and other participants about how to make the most of this powerful new capability.
