Value Added: Foreflight 9.3 Adds Route Options, Step Climbs

ForeFlight has released Version 9.3 of its aviation app which includes several additional capabilities. The Route Advisory tool now gives a visual preview of all route options on an interactive map. The Route Preview map also appears in the Flights view form-based planner to pro­vide a quick visual reference of the route.

The app’s per­formance planning now supports step-climbs. The flight planning engine calculates the highest possible initial altitude, then automatically creates step-climb legs as the aircraft weight decreases.

After filing your flight plan in ForeFlight, you will now receive a push notification to your device when ATC issues a revised expected route and when adverse weather conditions arise that may affect your flight. Weather alerts can be accessed in the Messages tab in the Flights view and Flight Notifications are available to all customers who file flight plans via ForeFlight.

Flight planning enhancements include an “Add Next Flight” button in the Flights view which makes it faster and easier to plan multi-leg flights by carrying forward departure, aircraft details, payload, fuel policy and more. In addition, you can now export your flight plan in the official ICAO format and print, email, share via AirDrop or save a copy in ForeFlight Documents.

ForeFlight 9.3 is available in the App store.
