Brief Description:

HEMS Weather Tool Presentation




  • Whether you fly an airplane, helicopter, glider, ultralight, balloon, or UAS, if you routinely fly off airport below 5,000 feet this weather tool is a must see.  Originally designed by the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in 2006 for the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services industry, the “HEMS Weather Tool” is catching fire with all pilots who fly below 5,000’.
  • Users can zoom down to street level and it provides a color-coded graphical representation of the flight category, ceiling, visibility, icing, temperature, humidity and winds, all below 5,000 feet and at one thousand-foot intervals.
