Weather


#1

There should be something to where you can see the local weather at the airport. Something like ( Mostly Sunny visibility 10miles winds calm) Something like that way you get a better idea of whats going on there.


#2

Look for “**** Pilot Weather” on the bottom of an airport page, it has the current METAR data. Learn to read that, and you get the current weather conditions.


#3

Oh I will try to learn how to read that but I don’t understand any of it. Where did you learn how to read that?


#4

Ground school…

There are also websites out there that will teach you how to “decipher” all that good old pilot jargon that we use.

No, I will not give you links, other than my “as per the ritual” www.google.com

hey i had no idea they had that. is it avalible at all airports with AWOS, ASOS, and ATIS?


#6

ATIS is different from an AWOS or ASOS. ATIS is a voice recording by an air traffic controller of the weather recorded from the AWOS with additional information related to the terminal airport.


#7

i know damn right what ATIS is i was just asking if this is avalible at all airports with weather stations. and no one has answered my question they just keep correcting me.


#8

Every airport with a METAR station will have the current report at the bottom of the airport info page under “Pilot Weather”.

My one home airport, KVAY, has a station.

My other home airport, N14, doesn’t.
