Passenger is the companion app to ForeFlight Mobile that answers the question “Are we there yet?” Built on ForeFlight’s high-performance map engine, Passenger automatically connects to your pilot’s ForeFlight app and displays the current route so you can monitor your flight’s progress.
Passenger also provides helpful flight information like time to destination, expected arrival time, altitude, groundspeed, and magnetic bearing. Any time your pilot makes changes to the route in ForeFlight, Passenger will automatically update the route shown to reflect those changes.

•Passenger will now receive GPS position data from ForeFlight Mobile 11.3+ and use that when the Passenger device cannot receive GPS directly. •Passenger devices that connect to a properly configured Gogo inflight Wi-Fi device (ATG or AVANCE) will now receive GPS updates from it, in addition to normal inflight internet connectivity.

With everything ForeFlight does, can you please enable online logbook editing from a Mac?
So cool!!! I can’t wait to show my passengers!
Will you have an Android version coming out for this?
The app works well and as advertised. Simple and elegant. However, the map has almost no detail. Passengers like seeing the details in a map, so they know what city/state/country/river/lake/etc. They are flying over. This would make the app slightly more interactive and fun.
Does this run off Bluetooth or a wifi network?
Really like the ForeFlight Passenger app. Came in handy when our aircraft’s Airshow System broke. Glad that one can airplay it from an iPhone to an Apple TV, but would like to see Passenger app available on the Apple TV too in the future. Minor complaint - the Remaining time and ETA are not accurate during initial climb out, when re-routed nor on radar vectors to final. On climbout it initially indicated 11+ hours remaining time shortly after takeoff (for our 5 hour flight). Once at cruising altitude/speed, the remaining time and ETA got more accurate (within 15 minutes of our aircraft FMS remaining time). During re-route, Remaining time grew to an hour off before I thought about using the Direct To feature on ForeFlight then re-pushing the data from ForeFlight to Passenger app manually. During approach phase, the Remaining time indicated 8 minutes remaining abeam the airport, but the time grew higher as we were vectored to the other side of the airport to intercept a 10 mile final. Even though we eventually flew the final approach track loaded in ForeFlight, the Remaining time kept increasing (to 31 minutes remaining on a 5 mile final to land) before I turned the app off. Passengers commented they could see E-mail pop-ups on the Passenger app screen.
It’s a cool app, and well done, just like all ForeFlight products. But, it doesn’t work for my home simulator. My simulated passengers (my kids) would like to follow our flight, but it uses the device’s location to track the route. So, the app doesn’t know the simulated airplane is flying. Oh well! 5-stars because it wasn’t designed to do that.
It is a great app but, it needs weather on it. Also maybe different maps.
Such a simple solution to the question of "are we there yet" , can't believe someone hadn't thought of this before, but glad you did...
