WxWorx announced today that its WxWorx on Wings in-flight weather solution is the first software system on the market to fully support XM WX Satellite Weather’s brand new suite of weather data products. The first software package to maximize the entire XM WX data stream, WxWorx on Wings provides interactive support for new XM WX near real-time data products including air reports (AIREPS), pilot reports (PIREPS) and Weather Watch products, which were just announced for the Aviator package. Additionally, WxWorx on Wings displays Turbulence, Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Day One Convective Outlook, SPC Mesoscale Discussion, Icing Current Icing Product (CIP), Icing Supercooled Large Droplets (SLD), Visibility and Hurricane Tracks for XM WX’s new Aviator Pro data package.

 

“WxWorx on Wings makes it easy for pilots to have the data and flexibility they need in flight,” said Bob Baron, president and CEO of WxWorx. “The great news for WxWorx’s current customers is that they can easily access all of the new data products offered by XM WX Satellite Weather without adding any additional hardware and merely upgrading their existing software.”

WxWorx recommends that all WxWorx on Wings users upgrade to the most recent version of software, version 1.37, by downloading the software for free from the company’s Web site, www.wxworx.com. The latest software enables WxWorx on Wings customers to view and interact with the new XM WX data products now available in the Aviator and Aviator Pro data packages.

In order to receive and display the new XM WX data, a subscription to the XM WX Aviator ($49.99 per month) or Aviator Pro ($99.99 per month) data package is required, as well as, a WxWorx data receiver, antenna and electronic screen display. An additional XM Satellite Radio subscription is required to enjoy XM music programming.
