    Aviation Weather Tips Every Pilot Should Know
    Every day pilots use various weather reports and forecasts to make many routine operational decisions. Knowing how to use this guidance within its limitations is paramount. While pilots are taught the basics, many important details are left out of their primary training. This program will discuss some common mistakes pilots make and provide a few tips on how to properly utilize this weather guidance in their day-to-day preflight planning regiment.
    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.

    Daily/Hourly Forecasts

    Stay on top of weather today or next week with Daily and Hourly Forecasts - an all-purpose, 10-day, hour-by-hour forecast for any location on Earth. You can access Daily Forecasts in several ways - from the Daily tab in the Airport Weather view, which provides a tappable summary of each day’s forecast; from the Add to Route popup after tap-holding anywhere on the map; from the Nearby Airports list in the top-right corner of the Airports view, which shows the forecast for your current location; and from ForeFlight’s Quick Actions list after tap-holding on the app icon, which provides an even faster shortcut to view your local forecast.

    Dispatch

    Dispatch - an add-on to ForeFlight’s Mobile and Web application - sets a new standard in team flight planning that equally empowers pilots, flight planners, and ops managers in flight departments big and small to collaborate and plan flights with greater efficiency and precision.

    Dynamic Winds & Temperatures

    Plan flights with global forecast wind speed, direction, and temperatures at multiple altitudes and times using two stunning animated weather layers. Both layers are available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.

    Easily Adjust Cruise Speed & Fuel Flow Values

    Performance profiles in ForeFlight make it easy to set up aircraft performance data for different power settings, but you can also adjust performance data for a flight without using performance profiles. 

    Just type space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor at the end of the route string, using standard abbreviations to indicate units for speeds and fuel flow, such as KTS for knots, MPH for miles per hour, GPH for gallons per hour, and PPH for pounds per hour.

    ForeFlight will use any values you add this way to calculate performance results instead of the performance profiles. The performance profile field on the left will show the new values in parentheses to indicate this temporary override. If you delete the new values in the Flight Plan Editor, ForeFlight will revert to using the values in the performance profile.

    Being able to quickly specify different performance values right in the Maps view provides valuable flexibility when planning a flight.

    Enabling Terrain
    Having trouble finding the Terrain layer in ForeFlight 8? It just moved next door to the Map Settings menu. You can also recreate the World Map from the Map Settings menu by turning on Place Labels.
    Enhanced 3D Review

    3D Review is a flight planning and debriefing capability that allows you to review planned and recorded flights with immersive 3D terrain and aerial imagery, as well as switch between different camera modes for a fully interactive experience. Prepare for an upcoming flight by familiarizing yourself with landmarks and ground features along your planned route, and replay a past flight with pitch and bank data to evaluate your maneuvers. 3D Review is available with ForeFlight Performance plans.

    European Graphical NOTAMs

    Pilots flying in Europe can view graphical enroute NOTAMs directly on the Maps view for improved flight planning and inflight situational awareness. Graphical NOTAMs are available with all European subscription plans.
