    Very useful tool. It’s best to download the training before trying to understand how this works.
  • No alternative and pretty good

    Five stars because there is no other option. This app works well and the developers look responsive. Worth the money to support them.

    Maybe I’m missing something about this app. But I just paid $15 for a dumb chart. I can get an interactive version on the web for free. Someone recommend this app to me and it has great reviews. But I regret buying it. At least they should add a Help page.
  • Excellent resource

    Best resource for determining cloud tops. Very good predictions many hours forward.
  • IFR pilots--THIS APP COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!

    Every IFR GA pilot needs this app for making go/no-go decision for every flight and for better understanding of conditions you will encounter at every altitude along your route. It could save your life! Obviously you must first have a good understanding of skew-t diagrams so don't blame this app if you don't have a good handle on them. See pilotworkshop.com for a great course!
  • Really helpful

    I check this before every flight if weather is it all questionable. Helps find cloud tops, risk of ice, and thickness of icing layer. Have been using it about six months. But still not facile with it. Sometimes is perfect. Sometimes understated risks. I must read more about its use.
  • Great help in planning

    A trip in weather. Adds another important layer of info before launching
  • A MUST FOR GA PILOTS!!

    Any GA pilot concerned about safety should own this app! It is critical to help predict conditions in the air. Ceilings, cloud tops, potential for icing, freezing levels, etc. THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL GA PILOTS!!!
  • Great information. Recommend strongly.

    The app does a nice job of presenting skew(T)Log(P) graphs. These graphs are standards used by the weather pros (which I am not). They are good for predicting tops and bottoms of clouds and especially icing conditions. This is my "Go-To" app for flying IMC. Very strongly recommended for IFR or VFR flights.
  • Best ever

    This app gives me so much information on ceilings, tops, turbulence along my route of flight; it makes flight planning so much easier.
