Sky MET (free) App Description

Welcome to Sky MET, The ultimate weather app for pilots, by pilots. This visually stunning and feature rich application provides you with all the weather information you will need when you prepare for your next flight: METARs and TAFs with a twist Sure you can get TAFs and METARs everywhere, but you'd be hard pressed to find a map based over overview that provides you instant insight in how the weather will develop over time, just by moving a slider. In addition to raw text, Sky MET provides you with: - TAF and METAR decoding - Crosswind component calculation - Weather radar for each station - Station NOTAMS - And web cam images, allowing for sneek peek at the station sky Wind Aloft Quickly see what the winds will be like for any altitude between ground and FL 440 SIGMETs, AIRMETs and outlooks Unlike most other weather apps, Sky MET presents you with the full range of international Sigmets and airmets required when preparing for your next trip, and when moving the time slider Sky MET will also provide a sigmet outlook. Affected regions are drawn on the map along with the station summaries. You filter on any combination of: - Sigmets - Outlooks - Tango Airmets - Sierra Airmets - ICE airmets PIREPs Use Sky MET to quickly see all PIREPs for the last hour. For your convenience the reports have been categorised in Turbulence, Icing and other PIREPs. Urgent pilot reports, for instance when reporting low level wind shear or heavy icing conditions, are clearly marked in red. Clouds, ICE and tops Sky MET calculates the areas with relatively high cloud density. These areas are displayed in on the map where blue and yellow coloration's indicate the likelihood of icing conditions. By sliding the altitude bar you can pick an altitude that is less affected by icing conditions. A quick glance in the left hand top corner of the screen show you the forecasted ambient temperature, wind and relative humidity. The latter you determine weather or not clouds will be likely at that position and altitude. Sat images and analysis. Satellite images and significant weather charts are provided to complete the weather picture.

App Reviews

  • Landscape mode only, not updated in two years

    By Kodera
    This looks like an excellent app that I could really use, but it only operates in landscape mode which is one drawback and it hasn’t an updated in two years. So I’m not paying 3.99 For an app that may stop working at anytime
  • Great

    By MarxAG
    Takes more then 4 hours to update the actual wx. I have full version and do not recommend.
  • Good

    By Andre Roux
    This is the first app that I have used that provides a comprehensive view of all the weather documentation that I have to view as a pilot before every flight. It is great help and reduced the time to collect and study the weather just a little when every minute counts when under pressures. The designer seems to have had a clear understanding of a pilot's real needs and the demand to be on-time. Great app! Thanks.

  • Useless

    By Anitchrist
    I'm a student pilot. I am trying to find help decoding airMets and sigmet . Nothing in this app is useful. Everything that is on this app I can find on foreflight. Please develop a decoder so that I ca study live airmets and sigmet.
