Weather Information Service

Weather Information Service

Honeywell’s Weather Information Service app assists the flight crew in making strategic, in-flight decisions with respect to weather information by providing up-to-date weather data (e.g. along route, areas of interest, etc.). Additionally, Weather Information Service can provide optimization of the flight path due to the availability of the most recent weather information.

This service utilizes an electronic flight bag (EFB) datalink application that assists the flight crew in decision-making related to route safety and optimization. The system uses real-time weather and trend information from the cockpit, as well as enhanced communication including current weather, historical weather patterns, and weather forecast to give the flight crew the clearest view of weather.
