*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather!
*** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF).
AeroWeather Pro 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 Pro is helpful for weather preflight-briefings, but also to just get very precise weather. All weather data is cached for offline access.
In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by windy.com), FlightService access (US only), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA). AeroWeather Pro also offers built-in groups for earthquakes, nearby stations, and today widget, which can be individually enabled on the top level view. Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level user groups (e.g. home base). Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can also be synchronized via Cloud Kit*.
The app features a built-in airport database, which includes airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, moon times, timezones etc.
METAR alert notifications** is another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with criteria like: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility etc. Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when flight rule becomes IFR).
Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data will come 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.
AeroWeather Pro comes with an Apple Watch app, which shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR and TAF are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date.
An iMessage app is also 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.

Ratings and Reviews
After using the Lite version for a while I decided to upgrade to the Pro version. The cost is very reasonable. It's a great little app that is easy to use and has all of the info that I require. Recommended.
Watch app is great with a lot of functionality especially if you read the manual
A brilliant app for travellers as well as pilots
AeroWeather Pro was one of the first apps I bought and I'm impressed by the regular improvements the developer has made to what was already a great app. It is of course targeted at pilots, but is also useful for travellers who want to see a detailed description of the weather at many airports around the world. The app decodes the coded weather reports and forecasts, so you don't need to be technical to understand them - but it does help. As for small number of reports/forecasts available for New Zealand - in simple terms you can blame the government that commercialised both the weather service and civil aviation. Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch are available because of international aviation requirements. If you live in or near one of those airports, you're in luck! The developer has no control over this. Most countries see weather reports as being in the public interest so make them freely available. The app is therefore rich in global reports and Terminal Area Forecasts, just not so many for our own country.
