Portent Aviation Weather provides high-resolution radar and satellite imagery as well as current (METAR) and forecast (TAF) weather conditions for your custom lists of stations for flight briefing. Portent retrieves these current and upcoming aviation weather conditions and displays them in a convenient and easy-to-interpret format. Portent Aviation Weather was developed by the original creators of the Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS). The app is fully functioning during the 30-day trial period.

Map Features:
- Radar base reflectivity mosaic from MRMS, updated every 10 minutes
- Satellite visible and infrared wavelengths from GOES East and West, updated every 30 minutes
- Selectable basemaps with zoom-appropriate information like cities, roads, rivers, lakes, and airport runways: "Simple" (no terrain), "Shaded Relief" (shaded relief terrain), and "Colored Terrain" (shaded relief colored by vegetation)
- Intelligent animation with custom frames based on the selected layer

Station (METAR and TAF) Features:
- current (METAR) and forecast (TAF) weather conditions
- worldwide database of reporting locations
- at-a-glance primary flight conditions (VFR, MVFR, IFR, LIFR)
- user-customized lists of stations
- full text METAR/TAF available
- user-friendly display of clouds, visibility, winds, and weather
- current Zulu, or Universal Coordinated Time, along with the age of the report(s)

Main Menu:
- Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner to easily access navigation and commands. The top selections switch between viewing “Maps” and “Stations”
- Additional context-sensitive commands appear in this menu, depending on which screen is being viewed
- The current Zulu (UTC/GMT) time is always displayed in the upper right corner

Map View:
- Common controls are located along the bottom of the map:
- Center map on your GPS location
- Open/Close the legend
- Choose a dataset (Radar, Satellite Visible, or Satellite IR)
- Start/Stop animation

Stations View:
- Upon installation, the app will produce a default list of nearby stations based on current location
- The default "Stations" panel shows the default station list data, METARs on left, first future time of TAFs to the right, and a simple color-code for flight conditions at future times (based on TAF data)
- Tap any station to switch to the detailed station view containing the most-recent METAR reported
- Swipe to left/right in order to switch to past METAR reports or to the future TAF forecast
- Tap the airport tower icon to switch to the next station in the overall list; or tap-hold this button to see the full list of station in the active group

Editing station groups:
- Open the navigation menu, select the "Station Group" panel, and then tap the name of the list you wish to edit
- From the "Edit Station Group" panel, drag any station up or down in the list using the small box on the left edge, or delete a station from the list using the (...) button on the right edge
- Tap the (+) button to enter one or more new station(s) using their 4-letter ICAO identifier; separate multiple stations using a space or comma
- Tap the (+) button from the "Station Groups" panel to create a new, named station group; or tap the (...) button on a group name to rename, delete, or set it as the active list of stations to display

Known Issues:
- Some international TAFs are coded very differently than those in North America and TEMPO/PROB conditions may not display correctly. This is a known deficiency we are working to resolve
- Primarily US/english units are displayed, but a future release may support customized units

Weather data are collected from United States government sources that are very reliable but cannot be guaranteed to be available at all times. Portent Aviation Weather is for pre-flight purposes only and should not be used in flight. Worldwide, there are many sites that report current (METAR) data, but do not have official TAFs.
