June 1 (Sat) 12pm - Foreflight Part 2: Cross Country Planning

Event Date: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019 - 12:00pm

 

Pilots begin preparation for a cross country flight long before we arrive at the airport.  Having the electronic flight bag up to date, organized, and personalized is the key to ensuring the information we need (approach plates, documents, checklists, scratchpads, etc) is at our fingertips, even when we are many miles from our home airport. 

Foreflight is a powerful app that facilitates access and organizes all the information we will need for our cross country flight.  The essential skill is knowing how to navigate it.

In this seminar for beginner Foreflight users, we will plan a trip from the bay area to the LA basin.  Like most software, there are usually many ways to do the same thing, so bring your experience and share in this fun and informative presentation.
