Flight Delay Notifications
All customers who file US flight plans with ForeFlight will benefit by receiving Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT) notifications via email and push when any Traffic Management Initiatives are in effect. In addition, tap on expected route messages to load the modified route into Flights and automatically refresh the Navlog and Briefing.
Customers who file Europe flight plans will similarly receive Calculated Take Off Time (CTOT) notifications. Traffic flow programs help to balance the airspace system capacity, and these notifications via ForeFlight provide the pilot or flight planner with critical real-time flight information.
Aeronautical Map Feature Toggles & Improved Airspace Labels
Instantly declutter the map by filtering airports, airspace, airways, ARTCC boundaries, terrain, and roads directly on the Aeronautical Map layer. In addition, dynamic airspace altitude labels are now always visible along airspace boundaries.
Fast, Easy Door-to-Door Planning with Trip Assistant
Trip Assistant helps any scheduler, executive assistant, or pilot more easily plan and prepare for upcoming flights. This simple-to-use tool factors in traffic during drive times, as well as flight times and time spent at each airport, to create a detailed itinerary so you know exactly when to leave or when you will arrive. Available on the web for Performance subscribers.

Automated Terrain & Obstacle Hazard Alerts Enhance Safety
Our inflight safety tech now detects and warns of threatening obstacles and terrain using visual and audio alerts that display app-wide. The system detects proximity to airports and the approach path and automatically adjusts the scan to reduce nuisance alerts. Turn on Hazard Alerts in More > Settings > Alerts. Available for customers on Pro Plus or higher.
Access Airport Details in Synthetic Vision View
Airport markers in the Synthetic Vision view are larger for better visibility, and you can single-tap on them to access detailed Airport information just like on the Aeronautical Map layer. Synthetic Vision is available for customers on Pro Plus or higher.
ForeFlight Available in Europe
ForeFlight’s powerful features combined with Jeppesen’s world-class aeronautical data products give European pilots a comprehensive solution for charts, documents, weather, route planning, briefing, filing, and flying. Beginning with a focus in the German market, ForeFlight supports both VFR and IFR flying in Europe.
Also in this release:
- New Transition Altitude alert provides an audio and visual callout when you climb or descend through the transition altitude. The alert also includes the nearest altimeter setting on descent.
- Customers who fly with SiriusXM’s SXAR1 aviation weather receiver can now overlay a detailed Freezing Level layer on the map. Colored gradients depict the lowest altitude at which freezing and icing may occur across the continental U.S., southern Canada, and northern Mexico.
- Non-standard waypoint types like address/place searches, VOR-DME points, and location pins in User Map Layers now support “Add To Route” in addition to “Direct To” functionality, allowing you to incorporate them into your route just as you would a traditional waypoint or VOR.
- ForeFlight MFB customers can now access approved weather data from the 557th Weather Wing, the official weather source for the U.S. Air Force and Army, directly in ForeFlight. The newly-integrated weather source provides METAR and TAF data for hundreds of airports and bases in the U.S. and around the world.
