Foreflight is one of the better aids which has come along for the pilot group. Our flight department has been using this for approx a year and Foreflight just keeps getting better. The recent iPad software update, 4.3.3 via iTunes, was a surprise to me however. Foreflight would not come on after I loaded the new iPad software. I ended up deleting the Foreflight and re-installing. Just took time. Seems to be back to it’s normal self now. I was not aware of the software update, but when I plugged my iPad into iTunes via laptop, it appeared. The Foreflight folks are really good to work with and are pilots themselves, and they have airplanes themselves. This likely helps, the rest of us who fly, lots.Posted on May 17th, 2011 at 10:08 am by Kent Magnuson
