Aviation weather and education
by BuserNet Consulting LLC
WeatherSpork is the strategic all-purpose weather planning application for aviators at all experience levels that will nicely complement the flight planning app(s) you normally use in the cockpit. WeatherSpork offers an inexpensive multi-faceted approach to uniquely blend online weather guidance along with aviation weather education. This includes -
1) Visualization tools such as a Meteogram, a vertical depiction of the weather over the next three days at an airport.
2) The Route Profile view is also a vertical depiction that lets you quickly see the impact of wind and hazardous weather along your proposed route of flight.
3) The Grid view coupled with the "Wheels Up Departure Advisor" lets you choose the most favorable time to fly.
To use WeatherSpork an annual subscription is required.
WeatherSpork provides fairly comprehensive weather guidance, but only provides supplemental weather information to pilots and is not a substitute for a standard weather briefing as described in FAA Advisory Circular 00-45H Change 1 (https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_00-45H_Chg_1.pdf).
WeatherSpork is only accessible in the U.S. mainland, but look for Alaska and Hawaii to be added soon.
