Flying & Navigation
Passenger is a companion app to ForeFlight Mobile that lets your passengers follow along with the flight so know when they can expect to arrive. Passenger is free to download on the App Store for any recent iOS device, with no account setup required, and all ForeFlight subscribers can share their route with nearby devices running Passenger.
Visit the Passenger page to learn more.
Devices that provide wireless inflight data like GPS and weather to your iPad can sometimes disconnect, whether due to a dead battery, connection issues, or human error. Whatever the reason for the loss of signal, the Device Disconnect Alert allows you to quickly take steps to restore the connection or switch to an alternative data source.
ForeFlight Checklist integrates one of the most important inflight tools at your disposal into the app you already use for every stage of flight, reducing cockpit clutter and providing an intuitive, simple interface. Checklist is included with our Basic Plus and Pro Plus subscription plans, or as an add-on with other plans. Upgrade at foreflight.com/pricing.
ForeFlight Glide Advisor helps you to quickly assess your landing options in case you ever lose engine power in flight. Using terrain, GPS data, and your aircraft’s best glide speed and ratio, ForeFlight shapes a glide range ring around your ownship icon on the moving map display.
Single Tap for airports, waypoints, navaids, and airways is a feature of Aeronautical Maps that allows you to quickly access information on the Maps view. With the Aeronautical layer selected, simply quick tap on any airport, waypoint, VOR, or airway to see details about it. Tap Add to Route to drop it into your route.
All ForeFlight customers can now access international departures, arrivals, and approaches using Procedure Advisor, expanding the scope of ForeFlight’s global planning capabilities.
These global flight planning features are further enhanced by adding Jeppesen’s industry-leading charts to your ForeFlight account. Check out our other videos on purchasing Jeppesen charts through ForeFlight and linking an existing Jeppesen account to learn more.
ForeFlight’s radar and satellite layers now use an interactive time slider tool that provides more control when viewing and animating weather timestamps.
Hazard Alerts in ForeFlight enhance your situational awareness and provide greater peace of mind by warning you of potential hazards ahead. Hazard alerts are available with a Pro Plus subscription plan and above.

ForeFlight’s Synthetic Vision feature now provides even more situational awareness with integrated ADS-B traffic depictions and a 360-degree interactive Glance Mode. Synthetic Vision is available with the Pro Plus subscription plan and above, and as an add-on to Business plans.
To use Synthetic Vision, make sure you select and download high-resolution terrain for whichever regions you plan to fly in, using the settings menus at the top of More - Downloads. Synthetic Vision can double as a backup attitude display when you connect to an AHRS capable receiver, but that isn’t required to use Synthetic Vision or either of the new features in this video.
ForeFlight’s advanced hazard awareness capability and backup attitude indicator is now available on the iPhone, and it looks fantastic! See detailed 3D terrain, obstacles, and runways in full screen Portrait or Landscape mode, and pair with an AHRS-capable ADS-B receiver like Sentry or compatible Garmin equipment for dynamic backup attitude and traffic display. The iPhone also supports Glance Mode, allowing you to swipe within Synthetic Vision to view terrain and traffic in any direction.
Synthetic Vision is included in Pro Plus subscriptions and above, and is supported on the iPhone 6 and newer. Visit foreflight.com/buy to upgrade.
