This is part one of our Performance video series, which walks through how to set up aircraft using ForeFlight’s new aircraft type database. These features are available with ForeFlight’s Performance Plus plan, which you can purchase at foreflight.com/pricing.

Set Up Aircraft Performance Profiles For Existing Aircraft

Detailed aircraft performance profiles are key to ForeFlight’s advanced flight planning capabilities and our highly-accurate flight time and fuel burn calculations. The first thing you should do after purchasing or upgrading to the Performance plan is set up your aircraft to use the built-in performance profiles. You only have to do it once, and it takes under one minute.

To see how you can set up a by-altitude performance profile if your aircraft type doesn't come with ForeFlight Performance Profiles, check out our Performance on the Web video.

RAIM prediction is supported for the continental US, Alaska, and Hawaii.

Trip Assistant

Trip Assistant is a fast, accurate way to plan trips from door-to-door, incorporating traffic and flight times to create a detailed itinerary. In just a few clicks, calculate what time to leave your home or office address to arrive at your destination on time. Trip Assistant can help any scheduler, executive assistant, or pilot more easily collaborate and prepare for upcoming flights. Non-pilot schedulers are empowered to communicate more effectively with the flight crew and passengers. Available with Performance Plus and Business Performance plans.

Aircraft Manager for Multi-Pilot Accounts

Multi-pilot account administrators can manage and distribute company aircraft profiles to all the pilots on an account, allowing for easier aircraft management and reduced setup time for large accounts.

Shared aircraft appear in the Aircraft list for all pilots on the account, along with a tag showing the email address of the administrator who published the aircraft. Pilots can view the details of shared aircraft and use them for flight planning, but all details of the aircraft are locked from editing by the pilots, including the performance profiles.

If the account administrator makes any changes to a shared aircraft, a “Publish Changes” button will appear in the bottom-right, allowing them to instantly distribute the changes to every pilot on the account. Clicking “Unpublish” will revoke access to the aircraft for all users other than the administrator, and they will no longer be able to see or use the aircraft for flight planning.

Performance Part 9 - JetFuelX in ForeFlight

This is part nine of our Performance video series, which walks through how to integrate your JetFuelX account with ForeFlight so you can view your contract jet fuel prices inside the mobile app or on the web. These features are available with ForeFlight’s Performance Plus plan, which you can purchase at foreflight.com/pricing.

Organized Track Systems

Organized Track depictions in ForeFlight provide a valuable reference for pilots who utilize these track systems. Organized Tracks are available on mobile and the web with ForeFlight’s Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.

ForeFlight displays three different track systems: The North Atlantic Organized Track System, the Pacific Organized Track System, and the Australian Organized Track Structure. Individual tracks are color-coded based on direction: East-bound tracks are purple and West-bound tracks are green. Zoom in to the start of each track to see labels for the track’s name and direction. Each waypoint in the track is also labeled.
