Pilot Weather


Get current and precise weather conditions (METAR) as well as weather forecasts (TAF), which are used by pilots for their flight preparations. You can choose worldwide airport weather stations from the built-in database by either name or ICAO code. Data will be shown in its original format or fully decoded into easy understandable texts.

Pilot Weather uses weather data from freely available US NOAA and FAA services, which cannot be guaranteed. The cost for Pilot Weather is just for creation of the app and not to pay for any weather data. There are no additional charges for freely available weather data sources.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. How can I change group names or change sort order within a group?
    • Simply tap on the blue circled arrow on the right side of the group name.
  2. How can I backup and restore my data?
    • Use 'Backup/Restore' in the settings page.
      The backup function allows you to store all user data (groups, stations and notes) in an e-mail. Simply send the mail to any of your e-mail addresses. To restore data later on, just open that e-mail again in the Mail app and tap on the backup file/attachment. It will open Pilot Weather automatically and overwrites the current data with the one stored in your mail message. This function can be used only for restoring data to another android device.
      Also you can link your "Dropbox" account with the application and take a backup of your data. You can restore the data from the list of backup files in dropbox. This functionality is also supported between android devices only.
  3. The wind direction arrow points in the wrong direction.
    • You can set the wind direction arrow to “from” or “to” in the option menu “Format”.
  4. How can I delete individual station/group?
    • Simply long press on the station/groupd and select delete option from the list.
  5. How do I change temperature to Fahrenheit?
    • Go to the Units settings. Switch off “Original station units” and set unit for temperature below accordingly.
      Temperatures in METAR/TAF are always in Celsius. So if “Original station units” is on, it’ll always display in Celsius.
  6. A station displays always just “data not available” only.
    • Some stations do not (or just during daytime) report data or US NOAA does not provide them. Please find another airport station nearby.
  7. The airport/station is not shown when clicking on “Show in Google Maps”.
    • Some coordinates may not be accurate anymore. Just mail us the ICAO codes (support@sparklingapps.com) and we’ll have them fixed.
