Brief Description:

ForeFlight is a comprehensive, one-stop source for all your aviation information, including weather, planning, briefing, flight plan filing, weight and balance, checklists, navigation, situational awareness on the ground and in the air, an aviation library, and much more.

ForeFlight is an awesome app—but only if you know how to use it. Come get a ForeFlight checkout and learn how to use ForeFlight expertly as the tool it was intended to be. This comprehensive checkout will help make your preflight planning easier and efficient as well as improve your situational awareness and ability to manage resources during flight.

The course will include a review of ForeFlight advanced features, including many new features to the app. Attendees will participate (hands-on) with their own tablets (bring yours) in all phases from preflight to postflight as well as emergency procedures using ForeFlight.  Whatever your level of familiarity and experience with ForeFlight, this class will make you more proficient at using this powerful flight tool.

This class will focus on VFR and IFR applications of Foreflight.

There is no wireless network available in the classroom. If you want Internet access during the class, you need to use your own cellular data plan or bring or activate a hotspot. Note: an internal wi-fi network will be utilized to connect all iPads to a class flight simulator.
