In conjunction with GTD and Météo France, Météorage took part in the creation of the eWas service, an application developed by GTD for the civil aviation industry that enables the provision and distribution of comprehensive weather forecasts in real time.
Available and updated at the flight preparation stage and during every stage of the flight itself, this data is accessible by pilots on the ground and in the cockpit. A comprehensive solution, eWAS presents a clear and reliable overview of current and future meteorological risks for the entire flight plan.
A veritable decision-making support tool, the service contributes to safety and comfort, and saves fuel due to better flight preparation and greater flight control.
Since 19 April 2017, this solution has been rolled out to more than 3,500 Air France pilots. Other airlines have already expressed a desire to use eWAS for their own air fleets in the coming months.
