How do I convert a .DOC file or other non-compatible file format to one that can be Opened In ForeFlight Mobile?

If you have a Mac:

  • Open the file on your Mac
  • Go to File-Print (shortcut is Command -P). 
  • At the bottom of the Print window, click the "PDF" button, choose "Save as PDF..." give the file a name and save it. 
  • Then import the new .PDF file into ForeFlight Mobile using either the email or iTunes techniques described above. 

If you have a PC:

  • Install a PDF printer driver that will create a "virtual printer" so you can print files to PDFs. One popular, free PDF printer driver is PDFCreator, found here: www.pdfforge.org/download.
  • Once you have installed the PDF printer driver, open the document, print it, give the file a name and save it.
  • Then import the new .PDF file into ForeFlight Mobile using either the email or iTunes techniques described above.
