WSI Helps Ensure On-time Arrivals During Disruptive Weather

Stay ahead of weather driven changes and get your passengers there on time.

Andover, Mass (October 15, 2013) - At NBAA 2013, WSI will be demonstrating the latest capabilities of the the WSI Pilotbrief platform in booth C7915.. The WSI Pilotbrief platform engages pilots through both a web and iPad application for global, weather-optimized flight planning to get your passengers there on time, rain or shine.

“Getting passengers to the destination safely and on-time is top priority for every flight,” says WSI SVP & GM, Aviation, Mark D. Miller. “WSI Pilotbrief provides pilots early insight into disruptive weather and enables optimization of flight plans to minimize impacts and ensure success.”

“The WSI products are an important tool that helps SevenBar flight operations conduct their 24/7 air medical transport missions. With the industry’s most comprehensive flight planning and flight plan alerting features, WSI Pilotbrief has become a necessary component of our overall operational control,” says Steve Moody, Director of Operations, SevenBar Flying Service, Inc.

WSI Pilotbrief allows pilots to seamlessly create, file, and manage flight plans across an organization of any size. With unique global weather features such as forecast radar and forecast turbulence, pilots can access weather and flight planning side by side, assuring a smooth flight.

The latest capabilities of WSI Pilotbrief include the innovative WSI Flight Plan Alerting. At first glance, Flight Plan Alerting appears to be a simple alerting function, but it does so much more. WSI Flight Plan Alerting monitors your flight plan up to five days in advance and notifies you of weather and airspace changes along the planned route so that you can provide your passengers with options such as departure time changes or recommend nearby alternative airports. Whether you are planning flights the night before or just an hour before departure time, WSI will keep you apprised of any weather and airspace changes that will affect your mission.

WSI Pilotbrief is the go-to resource for many flight operations departments because it includes global weather, flight planning, and charting, all in one easy to use interface. Pilotbrief keeps the entire operation on the same page, focused on the same data, helping them to stay on-time, especially on the stressful days when weather and airspace delays threaten your flight.

The WSI Pilotbrief platform, including our proactive Flight Plan Alerting are available for demo and purchase at NBAA 2013 in Las Vegas. Visit us at the NBAA Convention at #C7915 or at www.wsi.com/pilotbrief.
