    Basics of Flight Plan Filing (August 2021)

    Join the dynamic duo of Rob MacLeod and Tim Stahl from ForeFlight's FileOps Team to learn the essentials of filing flight plans. The two walk through the entire filing process, from basic aircraft setup to route planning, filling out the flight plan form, and amending, canceling, opening, and closing flight plans. Although this webinar focuses on filing in the U.S., pilots from other countries will still find much of the material helpful to their own flying.

    File with a Call Sign
    ForeFlight now allows you to add a call sign to flight plans. Enter a call sign contraction and number in the field to file the flight under that call sign; your N number will be included in the flight plan’s remarks so ATC can still access it. If you don’t enter any call sign the flight will be filed under your N number. Learn more about filing with ForeFlight at https://foreflight.com/filing.

    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.
