Aero-TV: WSI’s Pilotbrief – Staying Ahead of the Weather

WSI Illustrates One Of The Ultimate Services for Enhanced Weather Data

WSI Pilotbrief Online takes the award-winning WSI Pilotbrief weather service suite and provides pilots immediate access to up-to-date enhanced weather updates anywhere, anytime from any Internet-enabled web browser.  One of the few online weather services with FAA Qualified Internet Communications Provider (QICP) certification, Pilotbrief Online allows clients to file flight plans directly to the FAA, as well as view their preferred routes and briefing preferences at any of the numerous WSI Pilotbrief kiosks located in FBO’s throughout the country. 

Through Pilotbrief Online’s secure connection, pilots have direct access to all of WSI’s aviation data including WSI NOWrad radar imagery, IR and Visible Satellite imagery, graphical METARs, TFRs, AIRMETS and SIGMETS.  Radar summary charts indicate potential weather hazards, such as tornadic vortex signatures and mesocyclones, within a planned route for a proactive approach to changing operational conditions.  In addition, the en-route SIGMETS and Flight Plan Guidance provide forecasts for turbulence, convection, and icing, as well as up-to-the-minute Auto Plotted SIGMET and AIRMET charts showing boundaries of in-flight advisories.

With WSI’s Interactive Map, pilots can quickly and easily view global flight data, including route-centric visualization, on a single, easy-to-use interactive workspace. The enhanced map is able to display pole-to-pole, high-resolution digital elevation models with 16 individual weather, hazard, and route overlays.  Such layers include boxes showing areas of turbulence, icing conditions, and even a lightning layer that uses the Global Lightning Network to display real-time lightning detection data for locations throughout the world. 

Pilots can graphically combine various aviation weather and airspace notification layers with just a few mouse clicks.  Developed to be highly extensible, the state-of-the-art interactive map technology allows any future upgrades to be easily added for enhanced options.
