AvPlan will overlay METAR’s on the maps and colour code them depending on the actual conditions. Tap the map settings button on the En Route page, and tap ‘Weather’ and then ‘METAR’. METAR’s will appear on the map from the current forecast only, colour coded as follows;
- Green (VFR). Visibility > 8km, Cloud > 3000ft.
- Blue (Marginal VFR). Vis > 5km, Cloud > 1000ft.
- Yellow (IFR). Vis > 1600m, Cloud > 500ft.
- Red (Low IFR). Vis < 1600m and Cloud < 500ft.
If you then tap on a METAR icon on the map, the full text will appear.
