I also purchased the Stratus 3 and these two work so well together. My situational awareness has been enhanced by a huge factor and flying under Part 91, I only need the EFB - no more paper sectionals! The usefulness and intuitiveness of this software cannot be overstated. I used the ForeFlight videos to familiarize myself with the software on the ground and then went up flying with a buddy as a passenger to get used to it while flying. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and do not regret the cost of admission - totally worth every penny!February 4, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?YesForeFlight device limitations - Discriminates against LSAs?I fly an LSA out of Santa Fe, NM (KSAF). Besides the density altitude issues we face in the Southwest (we are at 6400 MSL on the runway), we also routinely suffer from high heat in the cockpit in the summer. This can make using an iPad challenging at times to say the least.
The issue? ForeFlight only supports two iPads and one iPhone for single pilot subscriptions.
The problem is that I don't have an iPhone nor would one really help with this issue. In real life, I don't consider that a usable option in the cockpit given the size of the screen while routinely flying around 2000 AGL in this part of the country. I used Garmin Pilot on my Note 8 before ForeFlight so I can attest to the challenges of this first hand.
Instead I have an iPad Mini that I use in the cockpit. I do have an iPad Pro - which I use for pre-flight only because it's simply too big for the LSA cockpit. It also overheats after less than 60 minutes in-flight in the summer. When I tried to add a backup iPad mini FOR SAFETY REASONS IN THE COCKPIT, I was not allowed to do so because it's not an iPhone.
I raised this issue with ForeFlight and was offered no solution other than removing my iPad Pro as a device on my account and to pre-flight on the Web version. Seriously?
I really like ForeFlight over the alternatives - but I find their device policy discriminatory to LSA pilots and entirely arbitrary. I have no issue with the 3 device limit but why should it matter WHICH devices I use for my flight management?January 17, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5June 18, 2018Purchased
8 months agoWould You Recommend?NofrustratedI'm pretty new to this to this whole ipad experience. Completely beyond me so far even with Ipad for seniors manual.So far the Foreflight app is somewhat easier to use. It's totally beyond me why no products you buy now days come with a real paper manual. Printing hundreds of pages is insane but so is trying to use an online digital version---i would pay $20 extra(not gladly). Nothing to do concerning ipads is the least bit intuitive or easy, I just hope after a few hundred more hours of this madness that I will learn enough about this technology to actually use it. It sounds so good on paper.December 3, 2017Purchased

Cons: Nothing significantly negative about this product. This application was installed on an IPad mini.The charts and other graphics were still clear and sharp for the size of my device.The AHRS feature is a nice addition but I prefer just the charts and plates.October 27, 2014
