ForeFlight provides General Aviation Forecasts, or GAFOR, in an interactive map layer to help pilots flying in Europe better assess upcoming weather and prepare for their flights. GAFOR is included in all European ForeFlight subscriptions.
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.
The first video in our Getting Started series for European subscribers shows you how to purchase a ForeFlight subscription with flexible chart and data options, and how to download the app from the App Store and sign in.
To learn how you can link an existing Jeppesen account to download the charts in ForeFlight, watch this video: https://foreflight.com/support/video-library/watch/?v=link-an-existing-jeppesen-subscription
This video provides a short tour of ForeFlight's organization and navigation, touching on each of the 8 "app views" and the specialized purposes that each one serves.
The first two things you should do after installing ForeFlight are select the charts and data that you want to download and create aircraft profiles that you will use for flight planning.
IMPORTANT: ForeFlight uses your aircraft's ICAO filing codes to check routes you plan for EUROCONTROL validity, so if you don't add filing codes then most routes will be INVALID.
The last video in our Getting Started series for European subscribers shows how to plan a route on the Maps view, send it to Flights to retrieve a weather briefing and printable Navlog, and file the flight plan with EUROCONTROL.
IMPORTANT: Remember that ForeFlight uses your aircraft's ICAO filing codes when checking for EUROCONTROL validation, so if you keep getting INVALID routes, check to make sure you entered the right ICAO codes for your aircraft.
