TopMeteo provides a forecast website made by meteorologists who all are pilots. It will support you at all three stages of your meteorological flight planning: 1. flight preparation a few days in advance 2. the weather check before take-off and 3. with on board satellite images using the TopMetSat-App.
Stage 1 – We at TopMeteo are running our own chain of weather forecast models to derive the information that matters to plan a flight! A special aggregated chart shows the VFR-conditions for a whole day at a glance. Besides this you can access detailed information about cloud cover, visibility, winds and their evolution, hour by hour. With these charts, their animation and more detailed site forecasts you can identify a nice flying day up to 6 days in advance.
Stage 2 – We know: before take-off, nothing can replace the observation of the actual weather. So TopMeteo also provides access to a large variety of satellite images (night and day, nightly folg, cloud tops), lightning information and some regions with weather radar. Two klicks on a map show you all the current METARs alongside your route. A list of the latest 5 met-reports per station gives you a feeling for the trends. With TopMeteo, all this information is in one place.
Weather briefing and monitoring has a huge impact on flight safety
Stage 3 – Finally, we have all experienced how quickly the weather can evolve enroute. So, we decided to create TopMetSat. This app for iOS and Android allows to load and visualise current satellite and radar images during your flight. We have adapted the patent pending image loading process to deal with the inconsistent mobile networks in altitude. The app ergonomics are suitable to in-flight usage. And it is worth it! For example, if you start to feel uncomfortable with overdevelopment in your area, you can have an overview of the situation with one tap. Make a safer and better decision regarding the execution of your flight.
But we know that the best is to let you test TopMeteo and see by yourself.
