Students and new pilots are increasingly flying with computer tablets, and using software that replaces paper charts and documents with the digital equivalents.  These applications, such as ForeFlight, are extremely powerful and have a plethora of features.  For a pilot just beginning to use ForeFlight, the choices and options seem overwhelming.  Valuable features and capabilities can go undiscovered.

Join SCFC in inviting Alessandro and Brandan to highlight some of the important first steps to take after downloading ForeFlight, and how to get started.  In this seminar, we will cover the most efficient ways to use this helpful software, along with many of the helpful tools to help with your flight planning.  Some of these include how to set up performance profiles, weight and balance, how to use geo referenced charts, and set up your electronic logbook. After this seminar you will feel confident using one of the most popular EFB’s available to pilots.

(Note: ForeFlight can be quite overwhelming with features, but basic Internet connection and iPad operation can also be overwhelming.  While we hope to talk extensively about ForeFlight, this IS NOT a technical support seminar for basic Internet connectivity and iPad use.)

If you are just beginning to explore the features of ForeFlight and want to deepen your understanding on how to effectively use these great tools, you will want to attend this seminar.  Bring your tablet and show up to discover the best features for new pilots.
