Bullseye™ in Military Flight Bag
Bullseye in ForeFlight Military Flight Bag is a versatile and powerful feature that simplifies mission planning and tactical decision-making. Bullseye is available with all Military Flight Bag subscription plans. Bullseye allows you to define an arbitrary point on the map and measure your own and others’ positions in relation to that point.
Military Flight Bag DD-1801 Filing
ForeFlight Military Flight Bag pilots can now file flight plans using the military’s official DD-1801 filing form directly through ForeFlight, greatly simplifying their preflight workflow and reducing reliance on paper. The DD-1801 filing form is available with all ForeFlight MFB subscription plans.
DoD regulations often require that all pilots departing from a military field fill out and sign a DD-1801 flight plan form and submit it to base operations by hand, fax, or email. To simplify this process, ForeFlight will automatically generate a DD-1801 PDF with your flight’s details, then allow you to digitally sign it and send it via email to base ops.

Military Mission Planning Charts
ForeFlight MFB (the version of ForeFlight built for US government, military, and DOD aviation) now allows authorized and authenticated customers to download and display the worldwide library of US Department of Defense military mission planning charts, including Joint Operations Graphics (JOG), Tactical Pilot Charts (TPC), Operational Navigation Charts (ONC), and Range charts.
A new interactive Graphical Chart Manager makes it fast and easy to select and download only the desired charts from the thousands available in the library.
The charts use the newest format standard in military digital chart technology, developed by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, called Enhanced Compression Raster Graphics (ECRG), and when combined with ForeFlight’s compression process technology, results in faster over-the-air (wireless) downloads, less storage space, higher resolution, and quicker load times.
