SilverCurve, LLC announces the second major release of its aviation weather software package, ForeFlight.

SilverCurve, LLC today announced the release of version 2.0 of its aviation weather software package, ForeFlight. The release marks the first version that supports Windows Vista. ForeFlight 2.0 includes an array of new features and enhancements, many of which were based on customer feedback.

"What started as a project for my own personal use evolved into a truly effective preflight tool, and lots of pilots out there are now using it as well," said SilverCurve, LLC founder Jason Miller. "Over the past year, we've taken the input of our users and implemented helpful new features, like the graphical weather timeline. We've also responded to requests to expand the number of airports that are covered - ForeFlight now includes over 4,300 U.S. and Canadian airports."

ForeFlight was first released in early 2006 when Miller recognized that it would simplify preflight planning for many pilots out there, not just himself. The software extracts aviation weather observations and forecasts in the form of METARs and TAFs from the Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS), decodes the cryptic reports, and displays the information graphically. It displays winds relative to the runways, shows an easy-to-interpret diagram of cloud bases, alerts pilots to weather that doesn't meet their personal limits, and assesses the conditions to determine which flight rules will be in effect. The goal of ForeFlight is to help pilots understand the weather situation as quickly as possible.

A fully functional, 30-day trial of ForeFlight 2.0 and additional information are available on the product website at http://www.foreflight.com.
