*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather!
*** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF).
AeroWeather Pro provides quick and intuitive access to METAR and TAF for airports worldwide. Data can be shown in its original (raw) format or as fully decoded and easy understandable texts. AeroWeather Pro is helpful for weather preflight-briefings, but also to just get very precise weather. All weather data is cached for offline access. There are many settings for units and format of METAR/TAF available.
In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by webcams.travel), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA).
The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc.
AeroWeather Pro offers built-in groups for earthquakes, ATC delays (US only), nearby stations, today widget, and Apple Watch which can be individually enabled on the top level view. Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level user groups. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit*.
METAR alert notifications** is another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with the following criteria: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility, and ceiling (BKN and OVC). Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when wind is greater/equal 10 kts, flight rule becomes IFR).
Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data comes primarily from certified ANSP (air navigation service provider) MeteoSwiss and is provided reliably and fast from our dedicated, redundant servers (indicated by blue checkmark underneath METAR/TAF).
The AeroPix feature offers users the possibility to take quickly picture(s) of the weather at their current location. The pictures will be available to all other pilots (on the map or within an airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about local conditions. AeroPix should be especially helpful when there's no or insufficient webcam coverage.
AeroWeather Pro comes with an Apple Watch app, which shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR, TAF, and webcam images (if available and enabled in the Watch App settings on the iPhone) are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date.
There's also an iMessage app included which lets you easily send METAR/TAF of any airport to other users.
Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features.
