Who am I?

I am a 31 years old Italian Flight Dispatcher. The most important instruments in this job are meteorological forecasts and observations. Common weather charts used in aviation are SIGWX (Significat Weather Charts) and WINDC (Wind and Temperature Charts). For text weather/bulletins TAF (terminal area forecast) and METAR (airport observations) are used at most. Also SIGMET (enroute observations) and several advisories (like the ones issued for volcanic ash and tropical cyclons ) are consulted. This leads me to explain why...


Why this site exist?

The aeronautical regulation require that all relevant data from a flight is stored in a safe place for, at least, 90 days. Safe place means these places are accessible to only few people, to keep all data safe. Sometimes, is necessary to view some of these data, for a very wide kind of reasons. While accessing to flight plans is usually easy (all airlines uses an electronic flight planning preparation system, which implements an electronic archive too), accessing to old weather charts, and old TAF bulletins is still a problem. In order to avoid a great loss of time, requesting authorization to consult archived data, this site offers a 90-days-old archive which contains data taken directly from NOAA's AWC website.
