SIRIUSXM Aviation Weather is now available on the latest version of FOREFLIGHT Mobile, the aviation app for iOS and the SXAR1 portable SIRIUSXM receiver. Pilots using the receiver and app, connected via Bluetooth, will be able to access the Aviation Weather service, including satellite-delivered graphical weather and aviation information like NEXRAD storm cell attributes, lightning strike locations, high-resolution composite radar and high-resolution base reflectivity radar.
“We are pleased to add SIRIUSXM Aviation Weather service to our FOREFLIGHT Connect platform,” said FOREFLIGHT CEO TYSON WEIHS. “Our customers are eager for a SIRIUSXM weather option. This integration delivers a high-quality, affordable, and portable SIRIUSXM weather solution with a subscription package tailored exclusively for ForeFlight.”
“Pilots have been asking us to enable our weather service in FOREFLIGHT’s market-leading app. We’re excited to let them know it’s now available!” said SIRIUSXM VP of Aviation and Marine Services DAVE WASBY. “With no line-of-sight restrictions, no altitude limitations, and complete coast-to-coast high-resolution coverage, pilots can benefit from important weather and related information starting before taxi all the way through landing.”
