ForeFlight’s Release 11.6 has Major Enhancements

ForeFlight 11.6 includes enrichments including 3D Review which puts you in the cockpit with a pilot’s-eye view; Map Annotations lets you take notes on the fly; Checklist Speak turns ForeFlight into a helpful co-pilot, and more.

3D Review

The newest addition to ForeFlight’s suite of 3D capabilities lets you follow the path of a planned or recorded flight with high-resolution terrain and aerial imagery. Preview planned flights from the Maps or Flights views and replay past flights from Track Logs or Logbook entries with realistic pitch and bank from recorded AHRS data. Pan and zoom within 3D Review to get a full 360-degree view of the route environment.

Included in ForeFlight’s Performance Plus subscription plan, 3D Review joins other advanced features like Airport 3D, Takeoff & Landing Performance, safety-enhancing fuel and weight planning and Trip Assistant with automatic fuel stop suggestions.

Map Annotations

Write and draw directly on ForeFlight’s map for easier note taking and much more. Tap the Annotations button on the left side of the screen to enter Drawing mode. Annotations remain visible above any chart or map layer, and you can easily change the ink color, thickness, and opacity for more style options.

Checklist Speak

ForeFlight can now serve as your helpful co-pilot by automatically calling out each item in a checklist so you can focus on flying. A quick-action bar at the bottom of the screen remains visible on every app view and allows you to pause or exit Speak mode and move faster or slower through the checklist.

ForeFlight 11.6 is available now at the App Store and also includes Map Annotations, Checklist Speak, Logbook Instructor Tools allowing flight instructors to send endorsements remotely, and more.
