Intelligent Airport Selection
Enter your departure and destination location using business names, place names, or street addresses, and Trip Assistant searches for and displays the nearest suitable airports. Narrow the options using filters for towered airports and available approach types. No need to worry about runway lengths – Trip Assistant automatically filters out airports that can’t accommodate your aircraft.
Fast Fuel Stop Planning
Trip Assistant features a built-in Fuel Stop Advisor that factors in your aircraft’s performance and automatically suggests stopovers to help minimize trip time and fuel costs.
Set a max leg time or a max leg distance, and the suggested options update accordingly. Fuel stop planning in Trip Assistant makes it easy to accommodate passenger comfort over long flights.
Reliable, Real-Time Traffic
Trip Assistant uses Google traffic information to calculate realistic drive times, saving you the effort (and frustration) of guessing what the roads will be like. Trip Assistant also automatically accounts for long taxi times at busy airports in the “Stay Time” fields, using real-world data for maximum accuracy.
Real World Planning with Real World Jet Fuel Prices
Turboprop and jet pilots who save on Jet A with discount membership programs can plan fuel stops and destination airports using their actual contract fuel prices. With a configured JetFuelX account, ForeFlight’s integrated fuel card management tool, Trip Assistant displays your contract fuel prices at every airport where you have fuel cards, minimizing costs and ensuring you plan with real world prices.
