AVweb speaks with Paxton Calvanese, maker of the wx24 Pilot app for iOS products, about long-distance flight planning for light GA aircraft, teaching pilots a new way to view weather and future data visualization products. Two key feature of the wx24 Pilot app are its annular presentation of 24 hours of TAF data, including overlapping TEMPO weather conditions, and the ability to create personal minimums based on more than just ceiling, winds and visibility. Pilots can plan a long trip and have the wx24 Pilot flag en route TAFs where, for example, heavy precipitation or cumulonimbus clouds will present, based on the pilot's selected time of departure and ground speed.
