SkyTrac Systems'... Weather Overlays Alerts Pilots To Avoid Lay Overs

[SatNews] “Now operators flying internationally can view weather overlays on all continents...”

SkyTrac Systems is pleased to announce the introduction of world-wide weather overlays to their web-based tracking and mapping tool, SkyWeb. This feature, previously only available for maps in Canada, the United States and Europe, will allow operators to track weather changes across the continents alongside the location and status of fleet, all from one interface.

Weather overlays allow for the monitoring of critical environmental data so operators can keep informed and anticipate changes in flight, further enhancing operations. The improved weather feature allows users to customize the overlays they wish to see, when they wish to see them and can also be viewed in conjunction with other SkyWeb features (Aeronautical Charts, flight watch corridors, etc.).

“Now operators flying internationally can view weather overlays on all continents,” commented SkyTrac President, Malachi Nordine. “This feature enhances the efficiency of route planning, the safety of flight crews and the communication between air and ground.”
