Foreflight vs FltPln Go
Sat Oct 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
Almost every pilot has heard of ForeFlight, but did you know that there is a similar app that’s free to use on the App Store? Garmin’s FltPln Go offers many similar features as ForeFlight, yet doesn’t cost money or require a paid subscription. So, which app is best? What extra features come with ForeFlight?
San Carlos Flight Center invites Travis Bender, an instrument-rated private pilot, will explore the features of each app and share out his findings on each’s performance, user interface, and overall functionality. The seminar will explore the basics of each app, and will highlight the key similarities and differences pilots can expect to find. While this is not a tutorial on how to use either product, it will serve as a helpful guide to selecting the right plan for you. Travis has used both platforms extensively for the last five years in both VFR and IFR environments and will touch on his experiences with each product. By the end, viewers will have more guidance and will be well-informed on which platform they should use.
