Meteorological information

Meteorological information in the form of reports, forecasts or warnings is made available to pilots using aeronautical mobile service either by broadcast (e.g. VOLMET) or by means of specific transmissions from ground personnel to pilots. Standard meteorological abbreviations and terms should be used and the information should be transmitted slowly and enunciated clearly in order that the recipient may record such data as are necessary. The following forms should be used:

  1. WIND (number) DEGREES (number) (units)
  2. WIND AT (height/altitude/flight level) (number) DEGREES (number) (units)
  3. VISIBILITY (distance) direction
  4. PRESENT WEATHER (details)
  5. CLOUD (amount, type and height of base) (or SKY CLEAR)
  6. CAVOK
  7. TEMPERATURE MINUS (number) (and/or DEW POINT MINUS (number))
  8. QNH (or QFE) (number) units
  9. MODERATE (or TURBULENCE) IN CLOUD (area)
  10. REPORT FLIGHT CONDITIONS
