7 Best Metar Taf App iPhone

1. AeroWeather Lite

Download the App on the Apple Store by clicking this Button
“*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather!
*** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF).

AeroWeather Lite 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 Lite 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.

The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc.

AeroWeather Lite offers built-in groups for nearby stations, today widget (pre iOS 14), and earthquakes. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view.

METAR alert notifications** is an 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).

Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data comes primarily from a certified ANSP (air navigation service provider) and is provided reliably and fast from our dedicated, redundant servers (indicated by blue checkmark underneath METAR/TAF).

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 there’s no or insufficient webcam coverage.

There’s also an iMessage app included which lets you easily send METAR/TAF of any airport to other users.

Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features. In order to keep AeroWeather Lite free we added a small ad banner at the bottom of the screen.

7. Weekend Flyer

Download the App on the Apple Store by clicking this Button
“Weekend Flyer is the easy way to plan your flights around the weather up to several days into the future. Now when you leave your home airport on Friday you’ll be able to plan for the weather on Sunday afternoon for your trip home. By drawing a picture of the weather much further into the future flying suddenly become more practical.

THE PROBLEM –
Weather information for flight planning even a day in the future is sparse. Prog charts go out less than 24 hours into the future and lack detail. TAF’s are only available at select airports and only go 24-30 hours into the future. Predicting the flying weather further into the future or at non-TAF airports require you to become a meteorologist, interpreting fronts and pressure systems. Even then the local conditions will often mess with you.

THE SOLUTION –
NOAA does provides forecast data for more than 2½ days into the future and for nearly every airport with an automated weather station on it (more than 1500). But until now its never been presented to pilots as a clear picture of the flying weather. Other apps only let you view one airport at a time whereas Weekend Flyer draws a clear picture of your whole flight.

FEATURES –
– The base map is a high resolution scan of the VFR Wall Planner you often see at airports.
– The weather stations (more than 1500) are color coded for flight category VFR, MVFR, IFR, LIFR.
– Thunderstorms and high winds at the airports are also shown. No need to switch between several screens to get the information you need.
– Cloud coverage is also shown.
– Even precipitation is shown (but subtly to keep the map from becoming busy).
– Surface winds and winds aloft shown with wind barbs.
– Map shows all public use airports when zoomed in.
– Map optionally shows night and day.
– A unique ‘time slider’ allows you to quickly and easily show the weather for any time in the forecast range.
– The smooth interactive interface allows you to see the ‘flow’ of the weather.
– Tap on any station for detailed weather information.
– See the weather trend for a single station.
– Easily create and edit routes by long pressing on airports on the map.
– Send the route to ForeFlight (Weekend Flyer is not associated with the Foreflight app or company)
– Routes use winds aloft to determine estimated time en route. Just slide the altitude control up and down to quickly find the optimal cruise altitude.
– Simulate a flight at your expected departure time. Ideal for finding a route when you want to leave at a specific time.
– Or have the whole route’s weather shown based on your departure time and ground speed. Weather is shown for the time you’ll pass each weather station. Ideal for finding a departure time when you want to fly a specific route.
– Extensive help available in the app (press the ? on the toolbar).

LIMITATIONS –
– Contiguous United States (lower 48 states) only – Sorry Alaska and Hawaii.
– Not a replacement for an Electronic Flight Bag app nor for an FAA weather briefing. Some weather information like icing or turbulence just isn’t provided.”
