I found this site, kind of fun. Might be useful to listen to if your planning to fly to or through one of these airports or centers:

Interesting. There's also a link there to a site with sectional charts you can drag and zoom in and out.

Anyone seen a site that lists the ATIS/AWOS at various airports? That would be handy.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but this is by far the best aviation weather site on the web.

http://adds.aviationweather.noaa.gov/

Everything you could possibly want, and basically in real time.

If you're really dying for more esoteric stuff, see:

http://weather.unisys.com/index.html

Then, of course, there's:

http://www.duats.com

or

http://www.duat.com

either of which is like calling FSS and getting a briefing, but with the ability to download graphics and file flight plans. They also log your visit, and count it as an official weather briefing for legal purposes.

Airnav just has the frequency or, if you're lucky, a dial in phone number. I'd like to be able to get the actual current ATIS information on the net. It's gotta be out there somewhere.

Doubt you will find it. Anyways it would be a rather moot point... most of the ATIS you can get from METAR... aside from the things like current runway, departure procedures, etc... which by the time you get in your plane and get ready to go can have changed three times. Plus, I'm not going to sit and say... "Oh, they are using 32-R right now... I'm not going to fly, I hate 32."

Default ATIS/AWOS/ASOS Over the Net

Try this site:

http://www.runwayfinder.com

It displays wind, clouds, and visibility if it is working right. Also, it color codes airports as VFR or IFR, etc.

Another unrelated link that I discovered today:

http://www.fboweb.com/antest/ge/intro.aspx

You can display all inbound traffic to LAX in Google Earth and overlay sectional charts as well.

That would be METAR data.

How about real-time flight tracking? The CFI at my club found this a few weeks ago.

http://flightaware.com/

Really cool! You can enter a plane's N-number, or an airport and it will show arriving and departing flight plans in real-time. Or, if the plane is on the ground, it's last filed flight.

We followed one of our club planes coming back from Virginia, as it was flying. The site also does traffic statistics for airports and what's in the air right now in your area.

Unfortunately this only covers IFR and maybe filed VFR traffic. That's not much help in the "learn to fly" State.

The animated tracking at http://flightaware.com/analysis/allflights_movie.rvt is pretty cool to watch, though.

I've been playing with a few of these sites.

http://www.runwayfinder.com is nice, but it's almost too slow to use, even with DSL.

http://skyvector.com isn't quite as pretty, but it's very fast. I find this one very useful for studying a route.

Both these sites have current weather.

An excellent , simple weather tool, my personal favorite, I use it when planning driving trips too.

Do not stray to the root directory or home page of this site if you are offended by shiny aluminum.
