Abstract

The development and outcome from first evaluations of the thunderstorm weather information management system ‘CB WIMS’ in the EU project FLYSAFE is described. Preliminary results from a flight test campaign carried out in summer 2008 involving two research aircraft are presented. They lead to the conclusion that information about thunderstorm hazards delivered from CB WIMS through a ground based weather processor and satellite communication to an aircraft could help to improve the pilot’s awareness of the weather situation and assist in flight planning particularly in complex thunderstorm situations where the on-board radar cannot provide the pilot with the full situation awareness due to scanning geometry and radar beam attenuation.
