    ForeFlight + Jeppesen Partner to Bring Jeppesen Charts to ForeFlight

    Jeppesen's global charts, terrain, obstacles, and NavData® are coming to ForeFlight Mobile – your all-in-one solution for planning, briefing, filing, flying, and logging flights. We are excited to announce this partnership that is truly greater than the sum of its charts. Our long-term strategic alliance with Jeppesen will advance the development and delivery of innovative products and services faster than either organization could deliver on its own.

    Glide Advisor

    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.

    Mountain Passes & More in High Resolution Basemap

    ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap includes Jeppesen-sourced terrain and cultural elements such as mountain passes, highway labels, and more for improved inflight reference. The Basemap is what you see with no other charts or maps other than the Aeronautical Map enabled, and depicts terrain, roads, urban lighting, and more.

    Profile View
    Profile view takes our Hazard Advisor feature into vertical mode and gives you a side view of terrain and obstacles along your planned route. With dynamic color alerting you will know at a glance whether your selected altitude will keep you clear of terrain and obstacle hazards. In flight, Profile shows your current altitude in relation to obstacles or terrain ahead of your track. Profile is a ForeFlight Pro and iPad only feature, and also requires iOS 7.1 or higher.
    Route Line in Profile View

    ForeFlight’s Profile View offers a side-on perspective showing your route line and inflight progress in relation to terrain, obstacles, and airspace, supplementing the top-down map view and improving your situational awareness. Profile view is included in ForeFlight Pro plans and above.

    Synthetic Vision
    Synthetic Vision takes our hazard awareness platform to the next level with a three-dimensional representation of terrain and obstacle hazards, airport markers, runways, and water features. Check out this highlight video narrated by mapping team member and lead developer for Synthetic Vision, Malcolm Toon. To learn more or purchase visit http://foreflight.com/synthetic-vision/
    Synthetic Vision on iPhone

    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.

    Traffic & Glance Mode in Synthetic Vision

    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.

    Weather in Profile View

    ForeFlight’s Profile View includes selectable Icing and Turbulence forecast layers, providing a cross-section of weather in addition to terrain, obstacles, and airspace along your route. Weather layers in Profile View are included in ForeFlight’s Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.
