DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 1 Echo Charlie, LLC, an aviation technology company, announced the launch of their aviation weather application for Apple mobile devices, wx24 Pilot. Unlike other aviation weather apps which display text versions of weather data, the wx24 Pilot interprets the same data and then presents them in an easy to understand graphical presentation.
wx24 Pilot pulls together the myriad of aviation weather reports into a simple visual format allowing pilots to quickly see "Aviation Weather at a Glance™." Now pilots can instantly view METARs, TAFS, Airmet, Sigmets, and even TFRs on one screen with minimal time and effort. The graphical presentation of aviation weather by wx24 Pilot allows pilots to quickly assess aviation weather reports and improves situational awareness and safety of the flight.
Founder of the wx24 Pilot, Paxton Calvanese, commented, "As a pilot, I found it tedious to constantly convert Zulu to local while factoring time zones and daylight savings, and then figuring out my ETA for enroute TAFs – only to do it all over again in a few hours. I saw an opportunity to solve this error prone headache by presenting aviation weather in a totally new way."
The wx24 Pilot App features:
- An innovative graphical presentation that allows pilots to view Aviation Weather at a Glance™
- Preflight summary graphics for easier, "Go – No Go" decision making
- Incorporation of pilot personal minimums allowing quick visuals to assess exceeding individual weather limitations
- Interpretation of FAA issued aviation weather reports: METARs, TAFs, Air/Sigmets
- Incorporates TFR data to avoid inadvertent busting of restricted airspace
Users can learn more about wx24 Pilot on the app's website. There you will find several screen shots, videos and tutorials that explain how the app works. "We realize that this is a new way to view how aviation weather is presented. That's why we put special emphasis on explaining how the app works and its many benefits over typical weather," Paxton further commented.
