Aircraft Weather Radar provides a constantly updating picture of the rainfall in front of your aircraft in flight, using a live link to rainfall radar systems and your device's GPS.
Switch between 50nm, 100nm and 200nm ranges, as well as the full UK and Ireland picture.
Aircraft Weather Radar is for light aircraft and microlights which would benefit from a Weather Avoidance Radar System, but have not got round to fitting one!
Aircraft Weather Radar also provides a picture of the currently available Satellite visible and IR cloud data, as well as current lightning picture and overlays.
Aircraft Weather Radar works with Android phones and tablets.
- Only for use in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
- Device must have a GPS and a phone data connection in flight.
There is a delay between the rainfall radar data capture and its availability, due to processing and quality control. This delay is constantly displayed in the top right hand corner of the screen and is normally between 15 and 30mins. An animation function uses data from the past 3 hours to enable the pilot to compensate for the delay.
Aircraft Weather Radar was developed by a British Microlight Aircraft Association member and test flown using a P&M GT450 flexwing microlight.
