PURPOSE: The Area Weather App is used to view METARs and TAFs plotted on a color-coded map or in a simple text table or in raw format. The weather is displayed for all METAR stations within the specified area.
The area is defined by a METAR station and a radius around the station.
METARs on a Map
The METAR data is displayed on a map that adjusts based on the size of the area. The METARs are colored coded based on the aviation flight category (VFR, MVFR, IFR, LIFR) for the station. The color coding and placement on the map gives a good quick overview of the current weather in the area.
METARs in a Table
The METAR data may also be displayed in a table that allows more detailed viewing for stations in the area.
The stations are sorted based on their distance from the base station. Tap any station in the table to see the complete raw data for the METAR and if available TAF.
How it works
Touch the Menu button to define the Area.
The Area is defined by entering the ICAO identifier for the station. There is a fast search function that
allows search by ID, airport name or city. After a station is chosen simply enter the radius preference.
An internet connection is required to get the METAR data.
You can have the App start-up on either the Map screen, the Stations screen or the Raw data screen.
Measurement units for Wind speed, Temperature and Distance can be set on the Options Tab.
Airports in the Database
PLEASE NOTE: The source of the METARs used in this App is the NOAA National Weather Service Aviation Weather Center. It can be found here:
If the METAR station can not be found on this site, it will not be in the App.
The database used in the App contains over 4,000 worldwide airports.
This App has been thoroughly tested with METAR information from around the world. However I want to emphasize the need to verify this data.
One thing that you may not realize is that METAR data may be entered by hand. That means that it is possible that there could be typos or simply some added information that is not expected by the software. This added information could cause unpredictable results and the user should be alert to this possibility.
About CFI Tools
I'm a Pilot and a CFI. I build these Apps and other software for my own use.
Some other pilots saw them and said "Hey you should sell those".
So here they are for sale. I hope you enjoy them. Any suggestions for improvement or new apps are always welcomed. Have a good flight.
Just like your 1 800 WX BRIEF briefer, Briefer checks weather conditions at departure, destination and along your route of flight. The briefing analyzes METARs and TAFs at departure, destination and enroute, as well as Nexrad weather radar images, Airmets and Sigmets relevant to your flight, saving you from wading through lots of raw weather data that is not relevant for your flight.
The briefing is presented in easy to digest sections, with color used to highlight risk levels. The summary section tells you what flight conditions to expect (e.g. IFR) and what level of pilot experience and airplane capability is required to safely complete your flight. Details for each section (such as the actual METARS, TAFs, Nexrad picture and Sigmets relevant to your flight) are also available, with data shown graphically on a zoomable map, and in text form.
Briefer uses data provided by NOAA's National Weather Service, and is for flights within the US only. While we do our best to provide accurate information and analysis, the briefing provided by Briefer does not constitute an FAA-approved flight briefing.
The satellite images are available in black and white and color (thermal).
The Messages and Satellite images that are obtained in the NWS provides weather information for the whole world.
The search pattern is ICAO.
Soon new updates!
Please send your suggestions!
Before making your flight planning, check all the weather factors and resources available, such as satellite images, wind, notifications, etc..

FlightIntel does not use the obnoxious banner ads to generate revenue and never will. Also, providing data updates every 4-8 weeks takes a considerable time and efforts. Please show your appreciation by donating generously. Help me make FlightIntel one of the best in its class.
The AeroNav products (TPP PDF charts and A/FD PDF pages) are only available after making a donation. This is because due to recent policy change by AeroNav, I have to pay for the DVD to get access to the important metadata file. Please consider donating at one or both levels to help me continue working on this app.

1. Using sectional you create your flight plan, identify your checkpoints (you need to know two things from sectional: true course, distance and TAS);
2. Each checkpoints can be customized (MSL altitude, indicated airspeed, wind direction, wind speed, magnetic variance, checkpoint specific images, notes to write radio frequencies); some of the fields automatically populated for your convenience.
3. Once checkpoint initial data is created this app will calculate (just like E6B flight computer) your ground speed (kn/hr and kn/min - used for descends), true heading, magnetic heading, fuel consumption, ground speed, time enroute, and even distance to horizon from the altitude you fly. You can add notes/reminders (radio frequencies, transponder codes, etc) and images specific to your checkpoint.
4. Once your flight plan is in place you can save it to SD card on your device and adjust it to a specific weather condition just right before you take off next time - no massive recalculation needed - all numbers will be updated by this application for you in a few seconds.
5. You can load your flight plans from SD card at any time, whenever you fly. Simply update wind conditions to recalculate your flight data before you take off.
6. Get in a plane and click "FLY" to activate your timer. Timer is visually shows you time you are flying the leg and time you have left to fly.
7. While flying you will be able to use a built in scribble - no more paper/pencil in the plane. Take notes on your device with your finger.
9. You can use sectional/airport images you attached to each checkpoint - no more HUGE paper sectional. Zoom it in/out with simple two finger swipe or double click on the screen.
10. You will be able to see the progress of the timer for each checkpoint! If you reach a checkpoint earlier/later than it was planned you can adjust your flight data.
This application is not using internet connection, GPS or any other heavy battery consuming features. Recommended to be used on bigger screen phones and tablets.
This application is especially convenient for night time flying - no flashlight needed to see details of your flight plan. It will run for hours on your android device, even with a very bright screen.
The ability to pause the timer or start next checkpoint comes handy when the winds change while en-route and you may arrive to the next checkpoint sooner or later then expected.
I developed this application for my personal use, tested it at night and day time flying - pretty accurate in calculations and I find it reliable and very convenient.
With this application you will save time planning/calculating your flight. I do recommend to try this application and get a full version. You will find really "Reverse" route calculation.
VAC Atlas Viewer is an application designed to simplify your flights.
This application downloads and shows French airports maps. With this application you will always have airports maps with you (usefull for flight planning, or even during flight).
VAC Atlas Viewer is available on the market to France's neighbours, but remember the maps are for French Airspace only.
**** Warning ON ****
VAC Atlas Viewer is a software application : it can fail or crash ! So be sure to have the originals maps with you !
**** Warning **** OFF
Now that was said, here's a quick overview of the differents features :
- Database update on demand from the SIA web site (translation = Aeronautical Information Service).
- Displays Airports in a fast scroll list.
- Icons for each types of Airfield (Public, Restricted, Altiport).
- Airports altitude is displayed.
- Download maps localy on you device.
- Delete maps.
- Displays maps (requires an external PDF reader that is not provided).
- Search by ICAO code or by Name (dynamic filtering).
- Alphabetically sort by name or airport ICAO code.
- Sorting according to distance (when GPS is activated) : displays the distance and bearing to reach the airports.
- Use both "GPS" and "Network" provider to enable the location in flight but also indoor (for a flight planning for exemple).
- Mode "online" or "downloaded" (the latter is useful in flight or when no network coverage is available to show only the downloaded maps).
- Choice of the download directory (you can use the SDCard).
- Choice of display units for altitude and distance, "Feet" or "Meters".
- Save user preferences (sorting & mode) between executions for a consistent user experience.
- User interface in French and English (the maps are both French and English but it depends mainly of SIA here).
- Free application, ad free !
The ergonomics and operation of the application have been designed to allow in-flight use (no networks).
Before each operation requiring a network connection, a warning box appears to warn you (and also because it can cost depending your operator).
At first run, the application will update its database from the official SIA website : it uses few bandwidth (~ 70K) but it can take up to 1 minute and half depending on the CPU of your device. All subsequent updates will be at your request via the Help menu !
Every first display of a map the application requests confirmation to download (again you can set where you want to download in the preferences : make sure the directory is writable).
Once a map is downloaded it appears in the "Download" mode.
A short-Tap allows you to view the map with a PDF reader (not supplied).
A Long Tap deletes the maps that you no longer want to keep.
From the help screen you can update the database : if the revision has changed you will need to update your maps (because they become obsolete). I suggest you to use a file explorer like "Ghost Commander" to clean up the download directory.
If the revision has changed on the SIA site and you have not done an update, you'll get an error on all new download. That's because the revision is not checked (see above). So you will need to make an update via the help menu.
Others features on the way.

The Air Safety Institute (ASI) Flight Risk Evaluator is designed to help pilots take a more systematic approach to those gray areas of go / no-go decisions. Take a few minutes to think about your own approach to risk management. Then, when you move on to the app, remember that its guidance is meant to be general; it’s your assessment of the situation that counts. Be realistic about your skills and proficiency. If you feel uncomfortable about something the program says is safe, always trust your own judgment and err on the side of caution.
• Provides an objective, real-time, and specific report on the risk involved with your next flight.
• Helps you make better choices about flight risk
• A great learning tool for new pilots in targeting the areas of greatest risk for your flight
• Helps craft your own personal minimums
• Tells you why a particular flight area may be too risky for your experience level
• Uses your current and total flight experience to evaluate your risk on any flight
• Automatically downloads real-time airport weather and runway lengths and configurations
• Offline use allows you to manually input any variables you choose to determine what the risks are if conditions change
• Stores your flight time and experience
• Stores multiple aircraft profiles for use with flying clubs or FBOs
In the real world of flying it can be tough to make calls about what’s safe and what isn’t. Airline and corporate pilots have rules that clearly spell out how to deal with sticky situations, but for the most part general aviation (GA) pilots are left to their own judgment. And that’s a good thing—but it doesn’t mean we always have to go it alone.
It sounds simple in theory…but out in the real world it’s not always easy to decide whether a given flight is safe or not. In some cases one particular factor may be marginal while everything else is good, while in other cases there can be a multitude of variables involved, and it can be hard to decide exactly how much weight to give each of them. Sometimes things look OK to start with, but then change en route. That’s when the calls can get really tough—and you need to choose carefully because the stakes can be high.
GA pilots prefer more flexibility when it comes to risk—more like guidelines than actual rules. Thing is, for guidelines to work you need to have good judgment …and a good choice for one pilot might be a really bad choice for another. The ASI Flight Risk Evaluator is a step to help you determine which choice is best for you.
