Answer 4

ForeFlight Question of the Month:

True or false: If you have your destination area and all charts selected in your download settings, you don’t have to bother with the “pack” feature for a flight plan., because you have all the information you need to fly an approach saved on your iPad already.

Answer: False

The approach and en route charts may be saved for your flight, but information like NOTAMs, current fuel prices, or the weather at the time of your departure may not. Furthermore, if you’re route of flight takes you out of the area you regularly download, packing will download the missing coverage for this trip.
