ForeFlight is the industry standard app for general aviation flight planning. The company maintains an extensive training video library on their website covering dozens of topics of interest to both new and advanced users.
There are three different plans: Basic, Pro Plus and Performance Plus. For student pilots, the Basic plan is recommended. For instrument rating students, we recommend Pro Plus or Performance Plus.
