*** 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 now 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. This might be useful for your most favourite airports or home base. 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).
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 theres 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.
Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features.
* Additional functionality which needs to be unlocked (one-time purchase). In-app purchases are not transferable between Lite, Pro, and Mac.
Pros and cons of AeroWeather Pro app for iPhone and iPad
AeroWeather Pro app good for
The best things in life are also the most simple. Albeit simple this app is tremendously valuable. In Brazil it lets me have a view around the country and quickly decide on where the next flight will be to.
This is one of the most useful apps for a Pilot that goes beyond the landing circuit!
Indispensable. A must get.
I liked it so much that I bought the Pro Version even though the free one was already enough. The developer deserves it.
Aplicativo muito bom! Sou piloto e recomendo. Me ajuda muito...
Great app! I am a pilot and recommend. Helps me a lot ...
Best possible App for a professional pilot. This App is the reason why I have the iPhone!
Almost Perfect App.!! It Would be superperfect if you guys could add the Approach capabilities & significant weather Charts! Thanx!!!
I really like the iphone 6 Update and the Widget. But it Would ne Nice to have the Widget customizable, so that it only Shows the Full raw Data metar.
Free one is awesome but well worth the money for the Pro Version. Looking forward to 1.2 Universal to support the iPad!
Some bad moments
I bought this app to be able to check the notams but it s not working!!!
The colored flightrule symbol at Apple Watch complication is a mess. I cant read!
Suggestion: Try to test before release.
Since the recent update, you cant save changes to your groups (name and sorting) anymore.
The widget is useless. It shows old data even for airports that have their data actualized 24h, and it cant be used to open the app like other widgets.
And why do I need to create a separate group for it? It would be easier to allow selecting an existing group.
The app is still okay, but simple.
This app was great but now its having many problems its crashing it takes too much time to up load I have to refresh at least 10 times to be able to se the radar its not worth 3.99 at all
Takes forever to load. And I know what youll say if your reading this,"but theres more information to load!" Unacceptable. I wait almost a full minute for my nearby stations to load and my custom group of 3 airports, takes literally 5 minutes. Also, metars dont say if theyre SPECIs and tafs dont say if theyre amended. Thats 4 letters at the beginning of the report they MUST purposely edit out, why? It couldnt possible extend the loading time. I honestly have gone back to using the free app, loads 10x faster and has virtually all the same information. Please fix this app!
It was an excellent app. However after this update, All of my stations disappeared. Cannot get weather to load. And when I try to re-add my old stations the app immediately crashes. Very poor update for a great app
