What sort of aviator are you?

I’d like to know who uses Meteo·Mobile.


First, because we exist because of you.
Also, because we make development decisions based on what we think or users wish. And for this, we use an image of what we think you are.
We used to think you are pilots. BUT we’ve discovered through you feedback that there are plenty of other people using aviador (crew members, virtual pilots, meteorology enthusiasts and teachers, controllers …).

I wish there will be plenty of answers that will help us better develop this tool.

I don’t believe in web polls. But, PLEASE, prove me wrong and answer the poll. It only takes a second.

You’ll find the poll on the right sidebar. Just click on the answer that best describes you. After that, you’ll get the poll results.

  1. I was a little confused by your categories to determine “what sort of pilot are you.” I’m a corporate pilot flying a Gulfstream. Therefore I consider myself to e a crewmember and I also fly “for a living”. At any rate, I appreciate your web site. It provides very up to date information

  2. You are absolutely right.
    I introduced ‘crew’ thinking on the other people on board an aircraft not seating up front. But as I see, it creates confusion….
    I’ll see how I can fix that.


  3. I am a virtual pilot, and among all the software that i use, i found this page as well. What i like about that is that it gaves me right away the alternat airport with there METAR report…great..
    How ever, i think it would be nice to heat as well from RL Pilot what kind of info’s are important and how to use them the best.

  4. Daniel,

    Many of my pilot friends started as virtual pilots.
    I’m happy that you find the page’s info useful.

    As a (private) pilot, I can tell you how I use the information Meteo·Mobile provides:

    I will usually start by taking a “look at the big picture”. I like to check the RGB Satellite animation to see the air masses moving. I find this chart particularly helpful because it is color treated and shows well cloud height. I’ll proceed by checking the current Satellite Analysis, plus the big airmasses forecast (you get all of these through the Europe weather charts link in the home page).

    Then, I’ll go local, checking all of the METARs and TAFs of the airports I plan to visit, plus those enroute and alternatives.
    Here, I want to know if wind and visibility are within my personal limits and those of the airplane I will be flying.
    I use the TAF to see if storms, strong winds or bad visibility are forecasted.

    Of course, this is what I do. I’d also love to hear what other people and the guys flying the “big birds” do.

  5. Hey just wanted to let you guys know I really enjoy the site. I fly the B737 and I always check the wx while i’m in my hotel room before heading out to the airport. It gives me a great idea of what to expect for the day. Thanks for making it possible.


  6. I am a private pilot who owns a plane I built a couple of years ago and I am currently building a new one. I use your website as my primary source of airport weather information. We used to have this at the airport, but the main terminal has moved and we have no access to weather information. It is now thanks to web sites like this one that we can fly safely. It would be great to be able to have weather info in the cockpit as they have in the US. In the meantime we have this great resources on the web that fortunately can also be accessed with mobile devices on the move.
    Thank you.
