ForeFlight for IFR

Wed Jan 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

ForeFlight is a great tool that many pilots use while flying. It has a lot of features and functionality that is applicable to VFR pilots. If you are instrument rated, you may know some of the key features that are applicable under IFR. But do you know how to effectively use the route advisor? Do you know how to use ForeFlight to help determine an appropriate alternate airport? Or ways you can use ForeFlight to visualize a hold?

San Carlos Flight Center invites Michael Dutton to explore how many aspects of IFR flights can be completed using ForeFLight. In particular, Michael will examine the Route Advisor, Aircraft Profiles, filing and amending flight plane, and other useful IFR information.

If you have been flying IFR for many years and want to understand how ForeFlight can do some of the tasks you normally do, join us to get an introduction to using ForeFlight for the IFR pilot. Bring your device with ForeFlight so you can follow along during the workshop.


Michael Dutton is a CFI, and CFII in fixed wing, with private pilot privileges in helicopters. He’s been flying and working at San Carlos airport for over ten years, first working for the Flight Center before moving on to Airport Operations and now as Flight Instructor. His past work experience also includes time with NASA and San Carlos Airport administration.
