This isn't another Flight Sim Flight Tracker. This Project is specifically focused on Flight Operations. I created meteoNautics as a way to show my passion for Aviation and Meteorology. We produce our own custom Aviation related Weather Advisories to be used for virtual pilots on Online Flight Simulation Networks.
Why Online Flight Simulation? Many Flight Simmers are flying with real-world weather conditions. By using live Aircraft positions on these networks we can pin point Aircraft flying into dangerous weather situations. Even though there are many Flight Sim tools out there that allow you to overlay Weather Radar and SIGMETs etc, we add additional "nowcasts" that can be especially useful, not only during Flight Planning before your departure, but also en-route. As of May 2021 we are also experimenting around with a "Convective Outlook" across Europe.
Although we build a few tools that automate the process for finding hazardous weather along your route, our custom advisories are all done manually, on our own time. Often we focus specifically on Online Flight Simulation events.
All of our decisions are based on real-world live Weather. We don't inject Weather into Flight Simulators. What we see in the real-world might be different then what is depicted in the Flight Simulator and additionaly be different then what Online ATC sees. That is why we don't tell you what to do. We only give advice. Any information you receive is for you to decide. Always communicate with online ATC.
Our goal has always been to work together with virtual ATCC's (vATCC) to cordinate Aviation Weather information across the regions.
It is difficult to cover the whole planet all by myself. This is why we are looking for VATSIM vACC's/Divisions and IVAO Division to have at least 1 individual making regular weather forecasts/nowcasts for their respestive area. You'll be using our tools and the forecasts will be available publicly through our website and products. Contact Us to apply for your region.
What would be the fun without being able to fly as well? We are planning on doing Research Flights within Active Weather Zones to see how Flight Simulation and Live Weather addons handle the expected weather conditions in an effort to help improve them. This "Virtual Airline" is going to operate on Online Flight Simulation Networks under the following information:
Airline: Meteorological Research Flight
This Project access the Online Flight Simulation Network APIs, but we don't store any of that information.
The following sources and APIs are being used to power the features on this site:
