Aeronautical Visualisation Service

Assisting the UK aviation sector is a key remit of the Met Office. We are a designated provider of meteorological services to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and support the industry with information designed to help pilots, airlines and airports improve their services and safety. 

The aeronautical visualization system will bring together 4 products: Aviation Briefing Service, Network Weather Resilience, Helibrief and Open Runway into 1 user-friendly service, enabling access to meteorological information such as METARS (Meteorological Aerodrome Report), TAFs (Terminal Aerodrome Forecast) and charts, as well as weather map layers.  This will ensure consistency in the information accessed.

Whether a glider pilot, balloonist, helicopter pilot, airline or airport, all required weather information will be accessible in one place.

Benefits of the Aeronautical Visualisation Service

Development of the service will enable:

  • A more user focussed product  - customer research is directly feeding into the development of the service, making for a more user-friendly intuitive product
  • Simplification of services, enabling adaptation to future user need
  • Consistent messaging – the current services were built in isolation, resulting in inconsistent experiences.

Keep updated

As the service develops, more information will be added to this webpage, including:

  • Updates
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
  • Development timelines
  • Guidance videos
