Title: Free Foreflight Subscription to CAP Pilots
Post by: etodd on January 27, 2021, 02:40:12 am
Yes ... its free ....

You can transfer your existing account, and when you leave CAP switch back to personal, and not lose data.

A win-win.

Has anyone made the switch? Please verify that CAPS SAR patterns are still included.

EDITED to add that its confirmed SAR patterns are still in the new package.  :)

Mine switched over today. When opening Foreflight, it said my subscription had expired (not the case but its their way of saying you have a new subscription.). Simply log out, and then log back in. The new Military version will be there.

NOTE:  You will see you have several hundred downloads available. Before clicking Download, check your settings and see if you really want to fill up your iPad with Asia, Canada, Europe, and Africa charts. LOL

I don't travel far. I usually have mine set for my state and the three surrounding states.

If you have FF on your iPhone or other devices, you'll need to log out and back in there as well. And also decide about the downloads for that device.

Enjoy!  :)

Also note - like many of us, myself included, we only have the basic level subscription.  This upgrades you to the top of the line performance plus version, and you have everything.

 Edited to delete the criticism of the hundreds if not thousands of files CAP is uploading to ForeFlight. Maybe it's true that most members will enjoy them. If it gets to be too much of a hassle I can always go back to the paid version I've had for many years anyway.

Maybe you should mod your signature to inform folks that you are the National CAP Foreflight Admin In Chief, so they would obey all your instructions and deletions?

;D ;D ;D
