Golze Engineering Partners with Meandair to Provide AW-METAR and AW-TAF in-flight


Golze Engineering partners with Meandair to provide ADL users with Meandair's live AW-METAR and AW-TAF in-flight via satellite technology.

Golze Engineering, the leading supplier of world-wide in-flight satellite weather products, has added Meandair's AW-METAR and AW-TAF to its offering. Golze Engineering will provide its ADL-customers with an extended offering, delivering better in-flight situational awareness based on Meandair's weather nowcasting data products.

Globally only 6% of airports produce METARs and even fewer – merely 4% - provide TAF. Meandair's AW-METAR and AW-TAF as seen in its AirportWeather.com service, provide the equivalent of METAR and TAF for every airport or heliport, even if a METAR or TAF station is not available at an airport. This is produced by Meandair's Weather Nowcasting Engine, producing 5 hours look-ahead predictions with minimal latency from sensor to final data product, along with unprecedented refresh rates of every 5 minutes.

Independent preliminary scientific research has found Meandair's Nowcasting Weather Engine to produce predictions that are on par with human forecasters.

Meandair's Co-Founder and Managing Director Dr. Peter Novák states "We are proud to bring our AW-METAR and AW-TAF to Golze Engineering's ADL-users in-flight. Dr. Sebastian Golze's technology is highly regarded in the (general) aviation segment - pushing the boundaries of what is possible – providing their users with the latest weather updates in-flight. Meandair is excited to expand Golze Engineering's offering with our unique AW-METAR and AW-TAF Nowcasting data products."
