The FlightSupport24.com is a web application that provides support and control to Airlines in weather monitoring process.
FlightSupport24.com is a free web application that provides METAR/TAF* monitoring experience to aviation community. Its mission is contributing to aviation and enhance flight safety.
METAR/TAF monitoring page displays all requested actual/expected weather reports on the screen, assisting Pilots and Flight Dispatchers before making strategic decisions with respect to weather information by providing color codes, pop-up and sound warnings.
When the current METAR & TAF reports no longer describes the ongoing weather or forecaster feels the report is not representing current or expected weather, improved weather monitoring service is a must that can be particularly helpful in situations where instant weather condition has come up and become aware of in time. This application comes into play in the effective monitoring of instant changes, improving early re planning on every phase of the flight.
Features of the application:
- Popup and sound alerts according to user defined Airport visibility and ceiling threshold
- Alerting Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) amendments and corrections.
- Calculates Wind Components (Cross Wind, Head Wind, Tail Wind)
- Standardized colors according to Flight Categories (IFR, LIFR, MVFR, VFR)
- Sorting by Flight Categories (worst to best) (LIFR, IFR, MVFR, VFR)
- Standardized colors on weather phenomena (-RA, -TS, SN, +TSRA, +RA, etc.)
- Bulk, singe, multiple searches with “starts with letter” (LT, ED, EH, UKBB)
- Bulk search with “country code” (~TR, ~DE, ~NL)
- Auto update & check interval
- Monitoring enroute weather
- ICAO code search by IATA or Airport Name
- Other personalized alerts will be added (Wind Shear etc.)
There are many weather information reports other than METAR/TAF such as SIGMET’s/AIRMETs, our aim is to contribute to the highest level of operational efficiency and flight safety, contributing to the decision processes by bringing together all the resources that any airline needs in daily operations.
METAR: Meteorological Aerodrome Reports are actual weather information observed around the airfield. | TAF: Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts are predictions of the meteorological conditions, usually ranging between 6 and 24 hours, for the airspace within an eight-kilometer radius of an aerodrome. These weather reports contain critical safety and cost related information such as, visibility, cloud, wind, windshear, thunderstorm, braking action etc…
