How do I import my own documents?

There are several options to add documents to ForeFlight.

1.  Synced Cloud Services - A DropBox, Box, or Amazon S3 account can automatically sync with a ForeFlight Pro Plus or higher account. You can link your ForeFlight account to a synced cloud service at:

Once linked, any compatible documents placed in the synced folder on your computer will be automatically shown in your synced drive in ForeFlight Mobile.

2. Mail (PDF Only) - You can send a PDF document to ForeFlight using your email. Tap on the PDF file within the email so the PDF displays in the PDF viewer.  With the PDF showing in the viewer, simply tap on the SEND TO button in the upper right, scroll until you find ForeFlight, and then select COPY TO FOREFLIGHT. This transfers and opens the document in the ForeFlight Imported Drive.

  4. Drag and drop your files to the "ForeFlight Documents" table. While the files are copying over, you will see a brief Sync in Progress message on your iPad (Some users may have to select "Sync" near the bottom of the screen based on iTunes settings).
  5. After the copying has completed, launch ForeFlight Mobile and tap on Documents. The files will appear in the Imported Drive. After a file is imported, it will disappear from the iTunes listing.
