Wx24 Pilot Features
The wx24 Pilot app is a weather centric approach to flight planning and is full of unique
listed below that
makes aviation weather simplified.
Its All about Time
When you talk weather you have to talk time. So why not show Metars, TAFs, Air/Sigmets and TFRs
in context of a clock for a very quick visual reference?
Visual ETA on Visual TAF
A visual ETA marker overlaid on a Visual TAF gives pilots a very quick read of forecast
conditions at ETA.
The graphic illustrates a base MVFR TAF Segment with a IFR TEMPO at ETA. The IFR TEMPO segment shows thunderstorms.
Instantly Read 100 or More Enroute TAFs @ Enroute ETA
TAFs provide specific and actionable information but going through just a handful of TAFs is a
time consuming process.
wx24 Pilot finds all the enroute TAFs, presents them at enroute ETA and then searches up to
20 different weather conditions displaying just the information you want.
The result - get a clear and comprehensive
picture of dangerous enroute weather conditions in seconds.
Set up to 18 different weather thresholds to get an instant indication of when and where your
personal minimums are exceeded.
It's like having your own flight category with much more sophistication than visibility and
ceilings, because TS happens in VFR!
Find the best departure time by swiping vertically and see the TAF segments
in correlation to the changing departure time.
Quickly scan an entire 24 hour period for your flight in mere seconds.
CONTEXT FOR YOUR TAFS
Benefit from the confidence of understanding what's behind the TAF. Get better understanding of
conditions by seeing overlaid prognosis charts.
wx24 Pilot displays the appropriate Prognosis chart based on your ETD and valid chart times.
EVEN MORE CONTEXT
wx24 Pilot automatically displays the correct Significant Weather chart based on your ETD and
valid chart times.
Why waste time looking at airmets or sigmets that are not a factor?
The wx24 Pilot app filters by altitude - floor and ceiling, severity, type and
IFR Alternate Check
Get an instant indication if an alternate airport is required with the visual ETA and a 1 hour
pre and 1 hour post shaded area.
Complex TAF Visualization
The highlighted circle in the image captures the superior presentation of the wx24 Pilot
The TAF shows 3 different flight categories over 2 overlapping TAF segments:
Prior to 22:00 Zulu a VFR with MVFR TEMPO, at 22:00 Zulu a BECMG from VFR to MVFR and at
23:00 Zulu an overlapping IFR TEMPO.
I mean at some point they should just admit they don't know what the weather will be!
WARNING: Don't do it
There is a lot in the app and you probably won't get it unless you take the time to get it. But
once you do you'll be happy you did.
If you DON'T have at least your age in minutes to go through the tutorial slides and/or
waste your time.
A very Visual approach to Aviation weather reports
