    Helpful Logbook Features
    ForeFlight Logbook streamlines your flight logging with intelligent data entry and support for currency-tracking for multiple aircraft types.
    Introducing: ForeFlight 8
    ForeFlight 8 is a major release that delivers ForeFlight’s new global data-driven aeronautical maps, featuring Continuous Zoom technology and dynamic decluttering powered by an all new map engine, built from the ground up to deliver next-generation maps to pilots. Also included are major enhancements to ForeFlight Logbook and ForeFlight on the web.
    Logbook Aircraft Profile Helper
    Complete aircraft profile information is critical to accurate flight currency reporting - ForeFlight Logbook highlights missing information to help your currencies stay on track. If you add an aircraft with missing details to a flight, a warning symbol appears in your currency detail views. Tap on it to see which aircraft need attention and to add the missing information. ForeFlight highlights the relevant fields so you can quickly resolve the issue and get your currency reporting back on track.
    Logbook CFI Currency & Aircraft Details

    ForeFlight Logbook now supports currency tracking for CFIs, and provides helpful at-a-glance information in the Logbook Aircraft list.

    Logbook Currency Details
    Tap on any Currency Summary in ForeFlight Logbook to see detailed information about your progress towards that currency. In the Currency Detail view, the top section shows your progress towards satisfying currency as well as a short description of the FAA requirements for that currency type. Beneath that is a list of all the flights that contribute to currency, followed by a list of all the flights that do not contribute, but which fall within the currency's timeframe, such as 90 days for general VFR currency, and 6 months for IFR currency. This organization makes it easy to see how your flights affect currency, and allows you to easily track down and fix errors in flight entries that should contribute to currency.
    Logbook Detail Reports

    ForeFlight now supports exporting your entire digital logbook in a traditional logbook format, which you can then print for sharing, gifting, or storing for your records. The new format is available in the Logbook Reports tab, along with the experience and progress reports. Two options are available - condensed and complete.

    A common difficulty you may experience when trying to print Logbook detail reports on double-sided pages is that the text on either side of each page is flipped. This is caused by the printer’s binding settings - the default for most printers is long-edge binding, while the detail reports require that short-edge binding be used. This video demonstrates how to change this setting using Adobe Acrobat, but the process may be different based on what printer and program you use.

    Automatic Track Logging

    This video describes ForeFlight's auto-start, -stop, and -upload capabilities for Track Logs, and how you can automatically create new Logbook entries from Track Logs.

    iPhone & iPad Design Improvements

    We’ve been working hard on redesigning the app’s interface on the iPhone to create a more consistent and familiar experience between it and the iPad, and this new interface is now available for all ForeFlight customers.

    The biggest thing you’ll notice about the new interface is the tab bar at the bottom of the screen, which replaces the “Menu” button as the primary means of navigating around the app. The tab bar makes it much easier to move between different views in the app, and provides a consistent navigation paradigm between the iPhone and iPad.

    The iPad has some notable changes as well. Favorite and Recent buttons throughout the app are consolidated under a single button and a new “slim” tab bar design increases usable screen space. Finally, we redesigned the More view to group the tabs on the left into more logical sections. We moved frequently used features like Logbook and Checklist to the top and administration functions like Downloads, Account, and Settings to the bottom.
