ForeFlight’s detailed Runway Analysis feature now covers more than 100 business aircraft types, the company announced at the 2022 National Business Aviation Association Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
Those 100 models represent about 70 percent of the corporate jets used in the United States, and ForeFlight is continuing to add more.
ForeFlight Runway Analysis gives pilots quick and accurate information about the amount of runway required for a broad range of weather and aircraft load conditions, and it helps pilots find the best obstacle-clearance routes in case of an engine failure during takeoff.
The Texas company is also adding to its ForeFlight Dispatch capabilities by allowing flight departments to update and share flight plans, crew manifests, and other information remotely.
For international trips, ForeFlight is adding electronic Advance Passenger Information System connectivity for trips between the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. It also allows users to store crew and passenger data securely so that it can be quickly called up before flight.
Most of these new features are available to subscribers to plans that cost $240 or more a year.
