ForeFlight Workshops

Logo Flat.JPG

Join us on the first Monday of each month for a 90-minute interactive workshop on the utilization of ForeFlight, the aviation industry's most renowned and widely used electronic flight bag (EFB) and flight planning application. This virtual workshop, led by Captains Brian Schiff and Mike Jesch, will begin on May 1, 2023, and will continue on the first Monday of each month.

The workshop will offer comprehensive hands-on training on using ForeFlight for flight planning, weather, and in-flight navigation. Learning to master ForeFlight as an important tool will improve your aeronautical decision-making (ADM).

The pace will ensure that attendees thoroughly understand ForeFlight's functionality without feeling overwhelmed. Attendees can tailor the content to their needs by posing questions and contributing their own tips and tricks. The workshop will enrich your understanding of ForeFlight and allow you to benefit from other pilots' collective knowledge.
