I have been using Foreflight in the cockpit instead of paper from the day I saw what the product provided and as fast as I could get out and purchase an iPad. I have Foreflight on my iPhone and iPad and do all my flight planning with the product.
I am careful to keep my iPad out of the sun while en route. I am fortunate that I can sit my unit behind the passenger seat in front of a vent that is in the wing spar raised section and within easy reach at any time.
I have made many cross country VFR and IFR trips with Foreflight and would not trade it for anything else out there. Yes, I guess I drank the Kool-Aid.
I wanted to share the latest update, 5.3 with fellow aviators.
