The rapid popularity of ForeFlight is nothing short of phenomenal. With a mix of powerful features and an easy-to-use interface, ForeFlight has become the most popular app for pilots.
If you’ve resisted using ForeFlight fearing a steep learning curve, Sporty’s now has a comprehensive training program that’s full of basic how-to that won’t make your head spin. The course begins with showing you how to download the ForeFlight app and start your subscription.
“There’s a lot to learn on ForeFlight, and this course is produced for the everyday pilot. You don’t have to be a computer scientist to understand it – in fact, we intentionally made this course jargon free,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman.
Experienced ForeFlight users will also benefit from this course. Just like when you discover something new your computer or iPad can do, this course reveals tips and shortcuts to make your flying easier. You will see all the powerful moving map features in action, including track up and terrain. One section provides an in-depth analysis of route editor to learn how to choose the right route.
“We’ve packed this 60-minute course with a ton of information, including how to keep your digital charts up to date,” adds Zimmerman. “We also provide a preflight iPad checklist we think all pilots should use.”
Finally, like all Sporty’s educational programs, the course takes you on a real-world flight. That’s the best way to see the iPad and ForeFlight app in action.
