WxWorx Introduces WxWorx OnLine Print
April 20, 2009

WxWorx today introduced WxWorx OnLine, the aviation industry’s new, fully interactive graphical weather software for daily weather monitoring and pre-flight weather analysis across the United States and Canada. Providing timely and accurate weather information directly to the user’s PC, WxWorx OnLine connects to the internet and delivers high-resolution NEXRAD radar coverage, winds aloft, METARs, lightning and more – all in one easy-to-use application. Available for installation on the user’s compatible PCs, WxWorx OnLine will only enable one connection at a time per user. The software is available as a free download from the WxWorx store at www.wxworx.com, and requires an affordable monthly data subscription to WxWorx OnLine’s Aviation package.

 

“Our customers requested a weather solution that they could use with any wireless or wired internet connection,” said Bob Baron, president and CEO of WxWorx. “Perfect as a part of pre-flight planning, WxWorx OnLine gives pilots the ability to check weather conditions even before they leave home.”

 

WxWorx OnLine’s intuitive interface enables aviators to quickly and easily view and interact with weather data at any point on the map by zooming into areas of interest to see greater detail. Since weather conditions significantly affect aircraft performance, WxWorx OnLine provides weather information in one consolidated location for daily weather monitoring. Utilizing a Global Positioning System (GPS) device, pilots can check weather conditions in relation to their precise location, providing enhanced situational awareness.

WxWorx OnLine’s data package, Aviation, is being offered at an affordable rate of just $24.99 per month with no contract required, or $19.99 per month with a one-year subscription that is paid in full. The Aviation package contains a complete suite of weather products including:
