Still the best app in the App Store... 5/5
I’m amazed by anyone who doesn’t give this 5 stars. It keeps getting better, and better, and better. It’s amazingly useful in the cockpit, and support is outstanding. This is really a 6 star app, and is very appreciated by this pilot...
ICAO Filing 5/5
By DC Drake
I asked ForeFlight Support for help and got an immediate answer.
Todd went into my Aircraft > Filing and fixed the problem right then. I’m a happy flyer!!
ForeFlight Support is the best ever!!
Customer Service 5/5
By Appreciative Customer
There was a difference between a depiction on my iPhone and my iPad. Even though it was early in the AM (0130) a customer service rep got back to me promptly and helped me fix the issue.
Sundays, holidays, anytime they always seem to be there. They answer quickly and their answers are easily understood.
This application is amazing. Ever time you think it can’t get better, an update is released with features that are just awesome.
If you’re a pilots, this app is a must.
Better than five stars!
Pleased User 5/5
By Plane Blessings
This is absolutely the most useful app for aviation available. I have used it for several years and am seriously impressed at the ongoing improvements they provide several times annually. About the time I think they could add a feature, they do so in a manner better than I could have envisioned. Their exceptional, personable, product support team is very responsive and have helped me many times. You will NOT be disappointed with ForeFlight. As a caution, you’ll want a reasonably new IPad with 64gb to run the app. if you want to download all US charts, procedures and have room for electronic copies of FAA documents and some of your own within the app. I have Maintenance Manuals and Parts manuals for my aircraft downloaded and ready in the event I need them on a cross country flight to equip a mechanic with what they may need to make a repair.
I subscribed to the performance plus USA package and it’s amazing.
Pvt pilot 5/5
Really quick and helpful tech support for newbies.
Don’t leave the ground without it.... 5/5
Best EFB with great customer service.
GNX375 is now supported! 5/5
Fantastic app after another 2 years of usage, however, just installed a GNX375 in my Cessna 172 for the ADS-B mandate but they don't seem to want to talk to Foreflight?
Update 6/9/2019: Figured it out, ForeFlight Connect now works flawlessly go send flight plan to my panel and also send flight plan updates back to my iPad! Also was able to confirm it was receiving ADS-B traffic and weather the entire time during my last flight. Worked like a dream!
Geo reference not appearing on some approach plates.. 5/5
Thanks to Albert and his quick response he explained how I had not selected all the states to be up dated that was the root cause of my problem. If I had use the pack feature it would have insured that all the information concerned on that flight path would be up dated....he also took time to explain why the Stratus / Sentry makes sense as a back up attitude indicator in the cockpit...He was a big help In resolving my issue along with all the good information .....Can’t thank him enough.
Perfect for Pilots 5/5
By Sam M..
Great app and great customer service
Not compatible with ipad 2 1/5
Despicable! Why am I not able to download an older version of the app??? What is now the scientific explanation to keep forcing unnecessary device upgrades. Somebody needs to put an end to this social slavery. Forcing people to upgrade so the big brother can keep making money. Go figure.
Can't say enough good 5/5
This thing is the best you can get. Don't blame the program if the sun blinds you and you can see the Ipad. Buy some sunglasses. I would be lost without my Foreflight...
Wish I could give it 10 stars...
Decent app awful support 3/5
The app is overall pretty good. However, support is pretty much a joke. They need a phone number.
Imagery on iPhone 2/5
I don’t really use documents on the phone, so having to search for weather is a bit annoying.
Foreflight is a game changer for military flight instructors 5/5
I’ve been an avid ForeFlight user for about 3 years now. I’ve used it on deployment, at home, and as a flight instructor for the military’s newest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aviators. Without a doubt, I can say this product has made me a better aviator and flight instructor. Between the situational awareness the product provides, the ability to see and plan for weather, or just being able to flex when your fly goes awry, Foreflight has consistently given me piece of mind. At this point, I pretty much consider it essential equipment every time I strap into the aircraft.
4.6 Star Rating. Quality, Intuitive, Incomparable 4/5
Personal opinion, ForeFlight should have a CFI package like WingX who provides it for free to active flight instructors. Or even a discounted version would be awesome.
Top reason for writing my review is because the customer service that ForeFlight provides is fantastic. In a timely manner my issues were resolved and questions answered. They are great with getting back to you, whether that’s through social media or direct email to their customer service personnel. Also the fact that they added the documents section for iPhone now made a big impact on me liking the app.
My only pet peeve overall is that I can’t view Winds/Temps Data for specific stations. From what I’ve seen the information is interpolated. Although I don’t think the information is inaccurate, it does seem reliable. I would like to know the data issued for the specific stations. I have cross checked ForeFlight and AviationWeather.GOV, there is a slight difference. As a CFII, I use this data to teach pilots how to interpolate themselves the winds aloft for their flight planning.
Weather briefing 1/5
The new weather briefing is TERRIBLE!!! Bring back the old briefings. The rest of the app does its job. Fix the briefings and I’ll give it 5 stars.
First of all, thanks for quickly updating us regularly to know if we should update to the new iOS firmware or not. I have a BIG suggestion, I feel like it should not be that easy to delete a logged flight in the logbook section without a confirmation question asking if we are sure the deletion was intentional. I love the slide to delete feature but I think it should come with a confirmation question afterwards. Perhaps a toggle in settings to turn deletion confirmations on and off would be good. Also, Apple Pencil support is not that great. The scratch pad needs major improvements because it seems like it has a “string like” writing effect when writing fast. Please make the scratch pad writing more fluid.
Automatic renewal with no refunds BEWARE 1/5
ForeFlight has an automatic renewal of your subscription (even if you are not using the app) and the policy that offers zero refunds. So, if you are doing something else and not notice they will renew your one year subscription.
New Update for the Documents!!! 5/5
By me fly
Amazing app for pilots, Thank you ForeFlight!
App changes are terrible 1/5
Why would you move the imagery button?? A) why would I want to use documents on my iPhone and B) why is it now that much harder to find the weather products??
The app is great so is the support 5/5
I love the app but am relatively new to it. I mistakenly deleted a bunch of logbook entries (with instructor signatures) recently. Sent the ForeFlight team an email and they restored my book back to before my entries were gone! Totally made my day. Thanks ForeFlight!
ForeFlight is amazing 5/5
By Heath Hilton
Everything you want in an aviation app and more. I have absolutely nothing to complain about with any part of the app
What happened to my bookmarks? 4/5
ForeFlight is a great tool for any pilot who needs/wants assistance with navigation or flight planning. As a flight student at Riddle, it is a very valuable resource. One of my favorite features was the document feature, where you can download .pdf’s, powerpoints, pictures, and other documents and organize them into folders. This was very useful for studying for checkrides, but with a recent update ForeFlight deleted every single one of my bookmarks for every textbook, FAR, or any other document.
This is a huge detriment to me, due to the fact I am taking a check ride next week, and would like the bookmarked pages I had for backup. Now I have to go back and re-bookmark everything which is very frustrating.
Please fix, if this happens in the future then I will find a different app to satisfy flight planning needs
Edit: Another thing that would be incredibly helpful, if possible I would love to have the option to enlarge my navlog when operating/planning a flight plan. It’s frustrating to have to squint my eyes to see waypoints on the tiny navlog at the top of the screen.
Great EFB, but Map frame-rate and resolution are not optimized. 3/5
ForeFlight is an excellent tool for flight planning, weather analysis, and everything in-between. However, there are two glaring issues I have with the application, especially when compared to the competitors (primarily Garmin Pilot). To start off, the screen frame-rate is capped at either 24 or 30 FPS. The app feels laggy due to this. This is especially upsetting if you have the latest Apple devices (such as the iPhone XS and especially the iPad Pro) that can do 60 FPS and 60+ FPS respectively. Secondly, the map resolution could be sharper, and isn’t optimized for particular devices. The sectional (or zoomed out En-route IFR chart) view is pixelated on my iPhone XS and does not sharpen up until it becomes a TAC. Even then, the map isn’t as sharp as it is on Garmin Pilot. Updating these two features would be excellent for me, and would change my 3-star review to a 5-star review. For $100 or more to purchase this app, things like this should be worked in.

The product functionality, quality of technical updates and user communications, and its best in class post sales support, put this product clearly in the 5 star category as a trusted flight companion!
By San Francisco Fireworks
Scratchpad froze while given missed approach instructions. Not good! Maybe my iPad Air 2 is too old for this fancy software.
Traffic display on synthetic vision. 3/5
I’m a long-time Foreflight user and have seen many updates and changes over the years. At this time I feel the need to re-write my 5-star review to reflect concerns about the app’s stability and direction. Specifically during the past 6 weeks after updating to the latest versions I’ve experienced multiple app crashes during a critical phase of flight. This often occurs while entering an amended route from ATC while flying single-pilot in IMC. I continue to work with the Foreflight Team (who acknowledges the ongoing issue) by sending in data dumps from my device (iPad Pro) yet the problem persists. While I understand and accept the app’s “advisory only” nature it still should not be a distraction. Now with today’s new multi-page required “User Agreement” I simply feel that Foreflight has lost its direction. In conflict with statements on the company “faq” page the new User agreement no longer authorizes the simultaneous use of an iPad and iPhone in the cockpit. It specifically states “...Individual Subscription provides you the right to use the applicable portion of the Service for one year from the date of purchase on one iPad, one iPhone, or one iPod Touch that you own or control. An Individual Subscription also allows the subscriber to use the applicable portion of the Service on an additional iPad only as a back-up device.” If this is not their intention then the User Agreement should be changed to reflect the actual policy. I am hopeful that the company and the app build on their past successes. The earlier versions worked so well to reliably provide the necessities of an EFB. I would encourage the Team to stabilize the basic functionality before adding more features. Until that time my rating will remain neutral at 3-stars.
Logbook needs improvement 2/5
By Jour J. Events
As much as I enjoy your app, I have to say that the logbook section could be more user friendly. For example, when I get my instructor to sign there is no way to just delete the signature and make a change to my entry. I have to delete the entire entry and it is very annoying.
I actually started using “MyFlightbook” because they have that option to just delete a signature and make whatever change then request signatures again.
I have a new pilot and I like the digital logbook but yours could be improved.
You just eliminated one of the best features 3/5
Weather discussion is not included in the new update. Huge disappointment. This was one of my favorite features.
Customer Service continues to be the best in the business! 5/5
I was having some difficulty getting the ICAO settings on my mobile device correct, and called the helpline. Josh C. was the technician who helped straighten out all of the settings on my portable device that were causing problems. Extremely knowledgeable, portrays a very friendly and helpful attitude over the phone, and got me fixed in no time at all. Thanks again for the good work that all of you do. Because he was so helpful, I will overlook his propensity to cheer for the guys wearing burnt orange.
200 a year for a frustrating login? 1/5
Pass on this one.. I paid 200 dollars for a new account. When I tried to log in it was an invalid account.. info was right, give someone else your $$$
Shame only for Apple 1/5
I am forced to no longer pay for Foreflight because i can no longer deal with the sketchiness of Apple devices. I’ve never owned an Apple device that didn’t have catastrophic failures, and i no longer trust them in flight. It’s a shame that Foreflight is dedicated to only Apple and unavailable on Android devices.
ForeFlight is the best tool for any pilot. 5/5
As a CFI and Commercial pilot. I rely heavily on ForeFlight and more specifically on the weather briefing I can receive on my phone. Flight planning is made so easy and this app has made my career as a pilot just a bit easier. I highly recommend!
We use this daily! 5/5
We fly 12 to 18 hours per week with ForeFlight and Stratus 2. ForeFlight has come along way since it’s introduction with synthetic vision, excellent integration with Stratus and so much more. I did get concerned with the previous version as we started having multiple crashes on two different newer iPads daily. We do load multiple waypoint and it seemed like that might have been a factor? I always make sure my iPad has plenty of open SSD space and the newer iPads have 2GB or more RAM, so I wonder if the software rolled out too fast? We’re also very careful about not updating the OS until the all clear is given. I just hope ForeFlight’s team slows down a little on all the bells and whistles. It’s much more crucial for the product to work flawlessly versus having 3D views of airports / etc. All in all ForeFlight is the BEST aviation App on the market and their team is obviously awesome at coding. My concerns and comments here about previous crashes are only because we’re addicted to ForeFlight and never want to see it burdened with issues. The new version seems to be more stable with only the rare crash. It does open back up in seconds right were you left off. Keep up the good work. Thanks ForeFlight!
Glitchy gimmicks to get you to pay more. 3/5
I've been a Foreflight subscriber for many years. It's been a good experience for the most part, but I'm tired of new gimmicks that don't work and ones that are begging me for more money. I had the pro-plus plan since it was one of the "premium" plans, but now they are just adding more features that don't work, more buttons to clutter the screen that try to get me to spend more money. I will not, the app isn't reliable enough to keep throwing money at it.
Please respect the private pilot. 3/5
The latest update, 11.0.1, is asking me to pony up another $100 bucks a year to add 3D airport view to my existing subscription. I’m already paying an extra $100 so that my Stratus 2S receiver will display an artificial horizon and terrain warning. I don’t need jet fuel pricing and international route planning for my Cessna 152 and Super Decathlon. And since I can see an airport in 3D on Google Earth, I don’t think I need to pay you more for that feature. Great app but only 3 stars because of your pricing structure that hoses non-professional pilots into having to pay for what they don’t need in order to get the few features they do want and do use.
Too many irrelevant rmaiks 3/5
By Bob Soltys
This would easily be a five-star app but for the irrelevant emails the Foreflight team sends every time Apple does a system upgrade, etc. Two emails asserting that the app works fine with iOS 12.1.3 add nothing to anyone’s day except the sende. Stop wasting our time patting yourself on the back and let your product do the talking.
Aviation visionaries 5/5
Have been a ForeFlight customer since its inception. Have also subscribed to two other similar well known products on the market. I find the ForeFlight convention to be the most cogent of all three. It is easy to remember how to navigate through the program. They have raised the bar every update. They are the industry standard.
3D Airport View Should Be In Lower Tier Services 1/5
I’m giving one star because of the addition of 3D Airport View but only making it available as a top tier service.
I’m already paying $199/year, but apparently that’s not enough to get this feature.
I turned off auto renew.
The best 5/5
By Pecos Valley Aero
FF is the go to app for me and all my flying friends. Planning, maps, weather, sync to our 750’s , filing, it has it all.
Great app for pilots. 5/5
I’ve been using this app for about eight years now. It defiantly makes flying safer and more enjoyable. It’s also cheaper and simpler than buying all the sectional maps back in the day. Keep up the good work ForeFlight, thank you!
Good App 5/5
By American Flyboy
Very convenient and handy app, must have for every pilot. Highly recommend!
Don’t Leave Home Without It 5/5
As a career software developer/designer, I’ve seen many times where software makes life easier, or more efficient. I’ve also seen many times where software tries to fill a gap that doesn't really exist. With 100% certainty, I can say that ForeFlight is one of the best things to happen to General Aviation since the Wright Brothers’ first flight. It correctly fills many gaps that existed prior to its existence and leverages technology to make your flight easier and safer.
I learned to fly in the era prior to ForeFlight. When I returned to flying, I was impressed with how far such technology had come. I can hardly imagine flying without my ForeFlight now. No more paper charts or semi-guesswork ... it’s all in ForeFlight, in an easy to interface on the tablet platform of your choice.
ForeFlight offers a 30 day trial. You can’t go wrong with that deal.
Invaluable for rapid flight planning and execution! 5/5
I have used ForeFlight for several years in my personal flying. In the last year I have been flying medevac and can’t imagine doing my job without it. When the 2am call comes, it gives me a great picture of the weather, Notams, and suggested routes if it’s an unfamiliar destination. I recently got the apple pen for the iPad Pro 9.7 and don’t even have to break out paper and pen to copy a clearance, still keep them in reach, but haven’t had to use them once. I never thought I would be comfortable without any paper charts at all but with the required backup Ipad on board I have no qualms. I appreciate the gradual improvements the team makes to the app, it’s never anything so crazy that you can’t figure out how to use the app after an update. Keep up the good work!
ForeFlight in my EFB 5/5
I don’t know how we got along before trying to fly safely without Apps like ForeFlight. And it keeps getting better. In fact the improvements are hard to keep up with. Truly an essential part of my EFB for preflight planning and while flying. Also ForeFlights support folks are knowledgeable and most helpful.
Please keep up the good work.
It crashes after this update 3/5
Download this update, and it crashes if I zoomed in and out on my route...
