The Air Race Classic (ARC) is pleased to announce Weathermeister’s sponsorship of the annual, all-female cross country air race. They will be providing free Weathermeister subscriptions to all ARC participants.
"Weathermeister provides the most comprehensive, easiest to read pre-flight briefing available to pilots,” said Dan Checkoway, Founder, Weathermeister. “Participants in ARC can take advantage of our Flight Optimizer feature in planning the optimum profile for each leg of the race."
Weathermeister is proudly sponsoring the oldest, annual, all-female cross country air race in the United States, and are the official aircraft inspectors of the Air Race Classic (ARC). The ARC is launching its ten-stop race from June 16th - 19th, 2014, starting from Concord, CA and ending in New Cumberland, PA.
Weathermeister gives pilots a 100-mile radius in the same space that DUATS gives pilots a single point! The mission is simple: to convey relevant weather information – quickly, meaningfully, and proficiently.
“Weathermeister is providing an invaluable tool and source of information for our racers,” said Marolyn Wilson, ARC President. “It will help to apprise the pilots and help them envision the conditions they'll be facing on each leg of the race.”
This site was originally created by Dan Checkoway, a pilot and software engineer. It's the result of more than a decade of development and refinement. It started out as a simple presentation of decoded METARs, but it has evolved dramatically from there. Over time, the level of sophistication of the decoding logic has transformed the way pilots get their weather briefings.
