Weather forecast with an extensive vertical profile. For flying and professionals.
Do you want to know what the wind will blow at height or at the ground?
Would you like to go soaring or are you looking for proper thermals?
Do you fly paragliding, rogalo or ultralight or maybe with something bigger?
Then this application is for you.
Aero XC displays forecast information as easily as possible.
In a clear vertical profile from the ground up to a height of about 12 km, the basic parameters such as force (color scale is adapted to flying) and wind direction, gusts and temperature, humidity and dew point are displayed.
Furthermore, the power and height of instability, convection condensation level, zero isotherm and clouds of all floors on a scale. The cloud floors are color-coded and correspond to the clouds on the map.
A new feature is the indication of the inverse level, which can affect the thermal flow.
Everything can be zoomed in the range from about 2km to about 12km above sea level.
To obtain the vertical profile of a particular place simply hold your finger over any place or maps of the airport or the starting area.
On the map, you can view the different levels you need or look at the extent of unstable areas or simply rely on the map usability.
The map shows gusts both absolute and relative, which is the difference between the basic wind and the gust and is more suitable for flying.
A distinctive Jet Stream map is intended for professionals.
You can display clouds on maps separately or combine them for each floor. The Cape index allows you to make the most of the day while avoiding storms.
There is a map of pressure units and for the USA and its surroundings we also have a map of queues.
The bottom bar then shows schematically the basic characteristics of the day.
There are thousands of airports and start-faces, you can select them on map or from the online list.
The sun card tells you when to land, unless you are flying IFR. :)
There are 3 prediction models available and further improvements are being worked on.
The application is free and is funded by voluntary user contributions.
