ForeFlight – VFR Workshop

ForeFlight for Student & Private Pilots Workshop

 

Are you interested in expanding your understanding of and how to use ForeFlight? Do you have difficulty deciding what video you need to watch to increase your confidence in using ForeFlight in the cockpit? How many times do you rewind a video to try and understand a new concept? This 2 day workshop with a 4 hour period each day gives you a chance to listen to an experience ForeFlight Instructor explain the fundamentals and then show you how to execute increasingly more complex VFR scenarios where you can hit the “stop button” at any time to ask clarifying questions.

How about the concept of aircraft dual to gain the most information and confidence and improve your ability to utilize all the ForeFlight capabilities in the cockpit? This workshop utilizes similar concepts that you experience during a flight lesson, demonstrate and then do. That is the instructor will demonstrate concepts and then oversee your execution of these concept with graphic presentations combined with the instructor’s own iPad actions displayed on large classroom screens.

You will need to bring more than paper and pencil to this workshop. Other materials that the workshop participants need are an iPad (recommended) or iPhone with one of the three current ForeFlight versions installed and aircraft weight and balance data for your aircraft or one that you rent or use.

Any skill starts with understanding the basic fundamentals. The ForeFlight application consist of 8 unique pages. Each of these pages has multiple functions providing you with a wealth of data and facts to support your flight. Step one is to know on what page is the information you need at the present moment. Some information may be presented on more than one page. Which one will you use? Once you begin to understand these fundamentals, with practice you will gain confidence in these skills in an interactive lab environment on your iPad.
