METAR is a short, pre-formatted weather report. In the Rotate ATC Client, you can select from a short list or a more detailed full weather report.
The short list shows the most important information: wind direction, speed, and the current ATIS designator of the airport.
The more detailed version displays a complete METAR for all your selected airports. With this information, you can quickly see the current weather situation at a particular airport, and provide the best service for incoming and outgoing flights.
The METAR data is based on real-life weather distributed to all controllers by our centralised weather system. The METAR also serves as a basis for setting up the ATIS of your airport and will influence the advanced calculations of the ATC client.
