ForeFlight VFR with Mike Jesch and Brian Schiff

A VC99's Pilot Proficiency Class

Saturday, Feb 29   9:30 AM - 3:30 PM

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 from professionals and learn how to use ForeFlight expertly as the tool it was intended to be. This comprehensive VFR checkout will help make your preflight planning easier and efficient as well as improve your situational awareness and ability to manage resources during flight.

This class will not cover ForeFlight or iPad Basics. The instructors will presume you are already familiar with the basics of ForeFlight or have taken the MarcFeb 12, 2020 ForeFlight and iPad Basics class.

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 applications of Foreflight and serve as an intro for the next (and separate) class: ForeFlight IFR, where we will focus on the 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 WiFi network will be utilized to connect all iPads to the class flight simulator.

Bring: your tablet with:

  • A fully charged battery.
  • A charging cable and external power pack to recharge your battery.  
  • Latest version of ForeFlight installed with chart data already downloaded for California VFR Sectionals and  California Airport Diagrams
