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.

Integrated Document Management for Business Aviation

ForeFlight's integrated document distribution and management capability provides incredible value for flight departments of any size. Watch Caitlin Galloway, ForeFlight's Success Team Lead, demonstrate how to make the most of Cloud Documents and other features to streamline your operation.

Learn how to invite and manage users on your multi-pilot ForeFlight Business account using the Organization tab on ForeFlight Web.

Import Custom User Charts

In addition to user waypoints and user map layers, ForeFlight now allows you to import User Charts that you can manage and display on the map.

The User Charts feature supports MBTiles, an open source file format developed by MapBox that allows for efficient compression and distribution of large charts. The feature does not yet support vector charts, which can also use the .mbtiles extension. A great tool for creating your own MBtiles is MapTiler, which is free to download and allows you to quickly georeference and export raster charts.

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.
