ForeFlight 14.8 Adds Mogas Data And Favorites/Recent Routes Feature

7

Aviation software giant ForeFlight has announced its updated Version 14.8, adding features such as mogas pricing data and a new Favorites/Recent Routes Filter.

Information on availability and price of automotive gasoline (mogas) at airports is now available to ForeFlight subscribers. Tapping on an FBO entry on a map or airport navigation plate provides self-service and full-service prices, as well as how long ago the FBO updated its pricing information.

With the Favorites/Recent Routes Filter, subscribers no longer need to manually scroll through each list to use the data for new flight. “Instead, tap the Routes button (the icon with the star and clock in the Maps toolbar) and start typing an airport, airway, VOR, or waypoint identifier to show routes containing it,” said ForeFlight.

Also, tapping the Takeoff or Landing button in the Flights view with a supported aircraft selected, then tapping “Summary,” will present a detailed summary of takeoff and landing performance calculations for piston and single-engine turboprop aircraft that are supported. Data will include runway conditions, climb analysis and more.

  1. Nice.

    Expensive software but worth it. Really helps with my flight planning and was a MAJOR BENEFIT with my instrument rating and situational awareness while flying IFR.

    Nice additional functionality.

  2. I’ve been asking Foreflight to get MOGAS info for 3 years. I was so happy and surprised to finally see it. With the advent of G100UL, I hope they will list those as they come online. However, the need for MOGAS will diminish with the new unleaded fuel. Anyway, Thanks Foreflight!!

  3. I myself have a different opinion of Fore Flight. And it’s not a positive one. However, most of their features and functions can be found elsewhere, and many times cheaper. All it takes is a little effort to do so. The information is out there.

    • And there are some features that foreflight still lacks, that others have had for a while. Like the ability to quickly bring up the ODP text for an airport, instead of having to scroll through the whole document.

      Competition is good, so I don’t want to see foreflight go away. But I feel it is overhyped, and I always encourage pilots to try out several different EFBs and not just default to FF because that’s what everyone else uses.
