Weather analysis couldn’t be any easier!
Welcome to WeatherSpork, the strategic all-purpose weather planning app for pilots at all experience levels. WeatherSpork offers an inexpensive, route-oriented and multi-faceted approach to uniquely blend online weather guidance along with aviation weather education. The app is beautifully implemented whether you are using it on your laptop, desktop or portable devices downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store.
“This is truly a GREAT weather product. It is a great tool for being able to plan up to 3 days out, and I have found the accuracy to be much better than other products. Also, in a few clicks you have access to lots of different ways of looking at the data. Definitely worth the subscription cost!”
– Jim B.
WeatherSpork was proudly designed from the ground up by two flight instructors and provides high-resolution weather guidance to complement the apps you normally use in the cockpit while teaching you how to successfully interpret that guidance. At the moment, WeatherSpork provides the most utility for pilots flying within the United States (lower 48) although plans are in place to expand beyond the borders into Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean in the near future.

Weather guidance at your fingertips!
Weather is by far the single biggest physical factor affecting your flying activity. Moreover, what’s happening with the weather at the surface and aloft plays a critical role in your routine aeronautical decision making and is probably the number one worry before many of your flights. It doesn’t matter if you are a student pilot, seasoned professional or somewhere in between, you must possess the latest guidance in order to minimize your exposure to adverse weather.
A standard briefing using 1-800-WXBRIEF or a briefing through many of the heavy-weight flight planning apps are typically focused on departing at a single time in the future. However, WeatherSpork is truly a route-oriented application so you can quickly find the most opportune time to depart that minimizes your exposure to adverse weather. Using our patent pending feature, the Wheels Up Departure Advisor, you can instantly leverage dozens of forecasts that make choosing the appropriate departure time a snap.
Weather education at your fingertips!
Most of our weather education has been through reading outdated textbooks, magazine articles and the occasional online tutorial. This material is often filled to the brim with generalizations and rules of thumb that tend to replace real weather analysis, especially when Mother Nature is at her worst. With respect to weather, the devil is often in the details and rules of thumb often replace real weather analysis. Very few of these traditional resources are up-to-date with the latest technology and weather guidance available online. Traditional materials are inadequate and lack a detailed description of how to interpret and integrate these tools within the context of your preflight planning regiment. Stop worrying and start learning by subscribing to WeatherSpork, your best online source for aviation weather and education.
Here are what others are raving about…
“Just want to express my appreciation for WeatherSpork. The WeatherSpork app enabled me to visualize the forecast weather along my intended route and alternate routes. The visual presentation really makes decision making much easier. I put my route structure into the Favorites folder and could call them up at a moments notice. When confronted with less than favorable weather on day two, I was quickly able to run a few scenarios to determine a best course of action. I have used WeatherSpork for other long flights but those were IFR in a G1000 equipped A36. The Citabria flight left fewer options.”

“As you know as a long time subscriber, I’ve always enjoyed your Weather Brief and all of the videos and learning modules. What I always felt was missing was a mobile type weather flight planning platform so you could “SEE” everything on one page. Well, you freakin nailed it. And way better than I could have imagined. Very thoughtful, intuitive, and really idiot proof and easy to use. And no more looking through pages and layers of materials to find what you need! Looking forward to the upgrades to fine tune it.”

“I love WeatherSpork. It’s my go-to app now for weather planning. For those that have been to Scott’s live workshops or gotten online training from him, it captures nicely Scott’s “drill down” approach to weather briefing, starting with the 7 day view, then the 3 day views by route and grid and then the meteogram views by airport, where you can drill directly into a Skew T or AFD. Used it to weather plan the trip down to Florida on Wednesday and it was highly accurate. Even sitting here now in the Keys on vacation, I’m keeping an eye on the route home to Philly on Sunday using the route view and time slider. Looking forward to this app’s continued development.”
