The program allows you to insert a Metar, to load it from a disk or from the Internet and to show his translation in a easily comprehensible language. There is a database containing all the airports that allows you to easily find the ICAO airport code. It treats even some particular added information for the Italian airports. The Metar translation can be associated to a visualization that offers an immediate comprehension of interesting values. You can keep under observation more than one Metar. Integrating by this sofware with Flight Simulator you can see the Metar close to the plane. It is also possible to transfer the weather conditions in Flight Simulator 2004 or show the Metars in Google Earth.
