eWAS: Weather and turbulence forecast for EFBs

The eWAS weather service provides in real time weather and turbulence forecasts and nowcasts during all the phases of your flight. Weather information will be available during the flight preparation on your tablet and will be updated during the flight on your connected Electronic Flight Bag (EFBs) in the cockpit. The solution will present a clear view of the current and future weather hazards along your flight path. The enhanced situation awareness will enable better strategic navigation which will contribute to a safer and more comfortable flight. Fuel saving is also expected thanks to an earlier and better preparation to avoid the bad weather conditions and turbulences.
