Your trusted bird’s-eye view

Our trusted aviation weather app displays the intelligence you need to fly safe and sure.

Our WxBrief app delivers accredited, meticulous in-cockpit weather data, clearly presented to significantly improve tactical decision making.

Weatherzone Business specialises in global aviation weather intelligence delivered in an easy-to-visualise format. Our solutions are developed in close consultation with the aviation industry to serve your in-flight requirements.

The WxBrief app is a decision support system customised to each flight, providing all required operational meteorological information in one place.

Pilots can request a flight pack by entering their flight number and the data is downloaded and processed typically within 30-40 seconds. The app updates in real-time during the flight where in-flight Wi-Fi is available, and Wi-Fi use within the cockpit is authorised.

Once a flight pack is downloaded it’s available throughout the entire flight, using the most recent meteorological data for the estimated position of the aircraft. The app requires no internet connectivity whilst in flight but can be updated if onboard Wi-Fi is available. Backup solutions (such as text only information) can be made available in the case of very poor connectivity.

No matter where you are, we’ve got you covered.

Your trusted aviation weather data delivered through WxBrief app includes:

Route plan
Pilots can view the route plan with vertical profiles.

The winds shown are relative to aircraft track and heading, so it’s easy to understand the risk of head/tail or crosswinds. Jet streams can be seen, as well as key temperature levels for icing, relative humidity (cloud) and estimated topography.

Text view
Text view provides pilots with all other TAFs and METARs for ports not listed in the chosen flight plan. Selectable regions bring up a full list of TAF and METAR data as required so you have full visibility of emergency or alternate ports when required.

Chart view
Chart view offers maps layered with these parameters, enabling the ability to view future conditions along the flight path:

  • Flight plan plotted and waypoints
  • SIGWX charts Graphical SIGMET FL390/340 Clear Air Turbulence
  • FL390/340 temperatures and winds
  • Satellite imagery
  • Altimetry
  • Freezing Fuel MSLP (surface) charts
  • Lightning (global)
  • Weather radar

The airmass will linger for an unusually long period, and will be cold enough […]

Sudden stratospheric warming event underway – here’s what it means for Australian weather

A rare sudden stratospheric warming event is beginning to occur above Antarctica, and it may influence Australia’s weather in the coming weeks.

Ferocious Tasman Low to hit southeast Australia next week

A major polar outbreak in southeastern Australia next week will produce a powerful low pressure system that is likely to bring severe weather to several states.
