** Additional functionality offered within a subscription. The subscription is valid in both AeroWeather Lite and Pro. Cross app subscription support is only available if iCloud (with the same Apple ID) is enabled. 


Plus Subscription

From version 2.5 on additional features which generate recurring operation costs for us will be offered within a subscription.

There’s only one subscription type which simply varies in time periods (1 month, 2 months, 12 months). The subscription is valid in both AeroWeather Lite and Pro. For example, you can also use the subscription features in the Pro version even if you purchased the subscription in the Lite version (and vice versa). However, multiple apps support is only available if iCloud (with the same Apple ID) is enabled.

In AeroWeather Lite and Pro the following features are enabled while a subscription is active:

  • Dedicated METAR/TAF data source
  • Meteograms in app and widget
  • METAR/TAF alert notifications
  • METAR raw data archive with up to 6 months of data back (accessible in airport’s detail view)
  • Extreme weather group showing min/max of wind and temperature grouped by continent (accessible via ooo-button in main list)

When using Lite also the following features are enabled:

  • Widget
  • Removal of ad banner
  • Darkmode

Previously purchased unlock features are not affected and will work with or without subscription. Please also see Subscription Terms of Use.


Better organized with groups

AeroWeather Pro now offers built-in groups for earthquakes, ATC delays (US only), nearby stations, today widget, and Apple Watch which can be individually enabled on the top level view.

Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level as user groups. This might be useful for your most favorite airports or home base.

Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. Each group has its own settings (“ooo” button) for data format (raw/decoded), sort order, and background color (either white as usual or time-based, where a stations background becomes dark when there’s nighttime).


Adaptive user interface for efficient use

When a detail station is shown you can directly swipe through the list without having to go back and forth which is especially useful on iPhones.

Optimized for any device and also supports splitscreens/multitasking on iPads (including drag and drop support for  iOS 11).

3D Touch support: in the station list you can use 3D Touch to get a quick preview of the METAR and TAF on supported iPhones.

Dynamic font sizes: when enabled (in settings) METAR and TAF texts will be sized according to the devices text settings. These can be found in “General > Accessibility > Larger Text”.


"AeroWeather Pro is an app I use everyday for my weather needs. It presents the airport data and weather clearly, succinctly, and is always up to date. It is a must have app for any kind of pilot, from student to the airlines!"
Eric W.
U.S. Airline pilot


Stay up-to-date with alert notifications**

Define multiple METAR alerts for each station with the following criteria:

  • flight rule (US NOAA)
  • wind speed (and direction)
  • runway crosswind
  • runway tailwind
  • temperature
  • temperature/dew point spread
  • pressure
  • present weather
  • visibility
  • ceiling (BKN and OVC)

Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when wind is greater/equal 10 kts, flight rule changes to IFR). Via 3D Touch or long tap notifications will show raw METAR.

TAF alerts will be sent when new TAF is available.


Syncronize groups across your devices*

User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit. If enabled in settings, user groups stay synchronized on all devices with the same Apple ID. The top level list (and its order) as well as device specific groups like nearby or widget group are excluded from synchronisation.


Apple Watch app included

The AeroWeather Pro watch app shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR, TAF, and webcam images (if available and enabled in the Watch App settings on the iPhone) are displayed for each station.

In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date. Go to the detail page of any station on the Watch and do a long tap to set it as complication station.

Requires watchOS 4.0 or higher.


Quick access through the METAR/TAF  Today Widget

Today widget for quick access in the today screen and through 3D Touch on app icon.

The list can be set manually (widget  group) or optionally set to nearby stations mode.


Help other pilots and users and share the weather

The AeroPix feature enables users to quickly take picture(s) of the weather conditions at their current location. The pictures will then be available to all other pilots (on the map or within airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about the local conditions.

The pictures will be automatically deleted after a couple of hours. AeroPix will be especially helpful when there’s no or insufficient webcam coverage. You could sum it up by: one pilot helps another (of course non-pilots are welcome too…).

Your own pictures are also accessible on the “My weather images” group” (e.g. to delete).


Many other features

  • Improved map view with direct access to station details.
  • Improved radar and webcam view.
  • Improved runway section now also showing TAF wind situation and runway surface type (mainly for US only).
  • Improved notes section with multiple records per station.
  • Improved METAR/TAF data loading.
  • Improved sharing and printing.
  • Glossary explaining the most relevant terms.
  • Option to use World Magnetic Model (WMM) for calculation of magnetic variation and annual change (in station detail view).

Transfer your data from/into your favourite tools

There are many ways to transfer your groups, stations, and notes:

  • Use the open exchange format to transfer groups from or to your favourite tools (more info).
  • Use the support of URL schemes to launch the app and show a station or even create new groups (more info).
  • Use QR codes to store and read your groups (storage capacity is limited to about 150 stations ansd will be indicated in the app).

METAR Siri Shortcuts

METAR requests can be defined for any station as Siri shortcut.

“Add to Siri” is available in the station detail view (Lite) or under the “Location” tab (Pro). Simply record your invocation phrase and then ask Siri later with this phrase to display (in raw format) and read-out (ATIS-like) the latest METAR.

All defined Siri shortcuts can be viewed in “Settings >  Siri Shortcuts”.

Requires iOS 12 or higher.


More forecast information with  Meteograms*

Meteograms show forecasts for (from top to bottom) temperature, dew point, wind direction, wind speed, gusts (if available), snowfall/ice (if available), obstruction to vision, cloud coverage, visibility, and flight rule

We use data from two sources: Meteograms in the US are based on US NOAA MOS models GFS (for long forecast, updated every 6 hours) and LAMP (for 24h forecasts, updated every hour). For all other stations, we use MOSMIX data from DWD (Deutscher Wetterdienst).

Meteograms are available for about 3200 stations.

Available in app and widget.
