Pilots Fly Safer Using Satcom Weather App
2014-04-28 03:21:41

ESA Pilots using a satellite service can now receive inflight updates on weather hazards and warn other aircraft of storms they see ahead. This Planet service is offered to regional, business and light aircraft, alerting pilots who are otherwise unaware of storms in their path. Without this, weather updates are not available during flight – all information is gathered before takeoff. In return, the planes boost the number of in-situ measurements such as pressure, temperature and...
