Aeronautical Maps Enhancements
Airport Runway Length Filter
Customize ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map by hiding airports with runways shorter than a set length with the Minimum Runway Length filter.
Automatic Airspace Highlighting
Airspace Highlighting in ForeFlight helps declutter the map and keeps you aware of the airspace affecting your route.
Available as part of ForeFlight’s data-driven Aeronautical map layer (available with ForeFlight "Plus" subscription plans), Airspace Highlighting changes the contrast of airspace boundaries based on whether your route intersects the airspace at your planned altitude. Airspace that you won’t pass through is dimmed, and airspace that you will pass through or pass near is highlighted.
Charts & Data for European Pilots
European pilots can improve their planning and flying experience with flexible chart options in ForeFlight, including both IFR and VFR charts that pack all the essentials you need into one integrated app. European subscriptions include Jeppesen VFR and IFR data built into ForeFlight’s map, and charts and AIPs for supported countries via EUROCONTROL, giving you a solid foundation for any type of flying. Additionally, you can select optional VFR chart and AIP add-ons as part of your subscription to enhance your VFR flying with your preferred chart providers.
Customize the Aeronautical Map
OLD VIDEO: This video was made before the "More" tab was redesigned from a single page to a pull-out menu, but all of the capabilities you access from "More" are the same as they were before. Visit the ForeFlight Mobile Pilot's Guide.
ForeFlight's data-driven Aeronautical Maps allow you to customize which map elements you show or hide. You can also choose between Light, Dark, and Classic map themes and toggle terrain features on and off. With the Aeronautical layer selected you can add or remove airspace, view high or low airways, and adjust label text size. Try mixing and matching the new map settings to find the combination that works best for you.
Global Aeronautical Maps
Global Airspace Details
ForeFlight provides advanced global airspace details for FIRs, UIRs, and other airspace types, with important information about frequencies, cruise altitudes, and operational notes.
Tap-hold anywhere on the map to open the Add to Route window. The names and altitude ranges of any airspace at that location appears in the Airspace section. Tap on each name to highlight the airspace on the map. Tap the Details button to view more in-depth information about the airspace.
Global Graphical NOTAMs
Previously limited to Europe, Graphical enroute NOTAMs are now supported globally with the new NOTAMs map layer. NOTAMs are color-coded based on type, severity, and active times, with new type-based filters available in Map Settings.
Hide Airspace by Altitude
You can declutter ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map by hiding any airspace above a selected altitude, making it easier to focus on airspace closer to you. Combined with other airspace features like Auto Highlight and selectable airspace types, customizing the map to show only the most relevant airspace is easier than ever.
