Congratulations, you have found the finest METAR & TAF monitoring, reporting, and alert system designed for your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV.
METARs Aviation Weather provides a quick and convenient way to access the world's most trusted routine weather reports, the METAR and TAF.
Used by pilots in their pre-flight briefing, these weather reports contain critical information about winds, visibility, clouds, temperature and other observed and forecast weather conditions.
This application collects weather reports from METAR and TAF stations, color codes them to the appropriate flight category, and displays them in a format similar to that of a calendar, helping you to see trends at a glance.
Unique to the app is a robust alerting system, which monitors changing flight categories and notifies you based on alert conditions you choose. So if you want to know when your departure airport changes from VFR to marginal VFR, just tap a few settings, and you’ll be ready.

Ratings and Reviews
The app to have for Apple Watch!
As a commercial helicopter pilot covering large geographical areas in a VFR only helicopter, I dreamed of having a watch notification when airport of my choosing were changing from VFR to IFR, this app turns those dream into reality. Also having quick access to historical METAR data is a bonus. I’m really pleased with this app so far and the price of admission is more than fair. Great job!
Unfortunate timing of aviation weather center server malfunction
When I initially purchased this app it worked great! Then all of the sudden it stopped. I assumed it was just the app and gave it a bad review... well it turns out the aviation weather centers server had a malfunction that was affecting the entire system and not an app related problem. App works great on iPhone X and iPad. A good source for aviation weather and route weather planning.
Developer Response ,
The METARs Aviation Weather App was affected by the server outage at the Aviation Weather Center. (https://www.aviationweather.gov/ ) They were down for the entire day, which is highly unusual. Now that their servers are back online, the app is collecting aviation weather reports again.
Good but needs work
Simple fix. Alphabetical order. Need to be able to find the station quicker than just scrolling.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
