Who is using Foreflight?

Postby MWDilday » Wed Jul 29, 2020 8:07 pm

I am a commercial pilot but hung up my spurs in 2015. I used Foreflight Pro Plus $199/yr when I was flying and now that I picked up X-Plane and PilotEdge I am really tempted to start using Foreflight again. Is anyone using Foreflight just for the Simulator? If so what level? I am concerned that I am just making an impulse purchase.

Tons of people use it for XPlane. But before you make the purchase, check out your free alternatives. AeroNavMap, FltPlnGo and LittleNavMap.

I Feel like such a newbie - but just wondering - I watch a lot of Youtube videos of Real life pilots, using IPADS for the Foreflight. I am a simmer, flew Piper Tomahawks 40 years ago...have full PE subscription, and anxious to use it. I have multiple monitors on my Sim Rig - instead of using Foreflight on an IPAD, is there a product that can use a seperate Monitor to act in the same way...I accept you dont have the pinch/zoom and touch capabilities, but following the aircraft in real time is cool, as well as airport diagrams and procedures.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this.

Thank you for a wonderful simulation product, that is available for us NON-Real Pilots.

Yeah, foreflight is a wonderful tool! But only as valuable as how you use it and from where. In my opinion, having it JUST for flight sim with anything but a basic plus sub is kind of excessive. I am only using it because I have a current US subscription. Once that expires, I will be either off it for good or on Canadian subscription (Covid-grounded Canadian pilot) from when it will only serve as a moving map for me. All my other data (plates, frequencies, etc...) will be coming from SkyVector and Navigraph data. I have yet to try FltPlanGo for my sim....but look forward to it.

It helps with briefings, with finding frequencies, and with knowing where you are. BUT....a well set up 2nd monitor with all that information displayed can work just as well and for FREE.

Hope that insight might help a bit.
