SoaringForecast

Note: If you installed the original SoaringForecast app (version 1.3 or before), uninstall it and install this (opensource) version. This version contains updates and will be the one updated going forward.

SoaringForecast combines relevant information for planning your next soaring adventure. The app combines New England RASP forecasts (soargbsc.com/rasp/ - courtesy Steve Paavola) along with the ability to import turnpoints (SeeYou format), create tasks, and overlay a task and SUA on the RASP forecast

A customized version of Windy is also available, again with task overlay.

Additional relevant weather information such as TAF/METAR along with NOAA/GEOS satellite images can also be displayed.

For convenience, links to Dr. Jacks Blipmaps and SkySite can be placed on app menu. (These options just open a web browser to those sites)

SoaringForecast will included soaring forecasts only available from soargbsc.com/rasp/ (currently NewEngland but is set to display Mifflin along with Mifflin turnpoints and SUA)

The source code for the app is at https://github.com/efoertsch/SoaringForecast. Code contributions are encouraged. (It would be nice to have other regions generate RASP forecasts and update the app to cover these added regions.)

No warranties expressed or implied. Use at your own risk. If the forecast looks great but the day turns out to be sucky, any tow fees, retrieval fees, landout dinners, and/or broken gliders/bodies are on you.
