It’s called ForeFlight, great app! Not to mention all the news stations discussing one of the biggest snow storms of the decade in the Sierra’s. 4 to 6 feet at Mammoth for the skiers in the crowd.

Yeah we use WSI, itís good. I flew the other direction that day but didnít see any SEV Sigmet, just MOD in that area. The severe sigmet I did see was issued after the report by the E75, I assume the incident A/C.

DL doesnít allow any Gogo use by DCI however another partner does allow the use of WiFi for our turbulence app.

Sierra cement. Champagne powder, Steamboat is getting dumped too. Snow snob?

Not all of Endeavor's RJs are 3 class is my point, so no wifi for a fair number of their flights to use for it.

I expect part of it is a desire to ensure they don't take advantage of it for their non-Delta passengers when flying for other airlines, but another part might just be a lack of bandwidth to support all the DCI aircraft in addition to the ML flights.

Endeavor has been told we are getting it with the next version of our iPads, coming in about 12 months. Also digital releases, flight family, etc.

If we don't share FWV we should at least require them to watch this video:

Wouldnít be applicable in this case. The DCI birds Compass flies are OWNED BY Delta.

We were recently approved to use WSI at OO, but right now the backdoor on the WiFi only works on our UAL birds. Allegedly, it will be opened up to function on the DL ones as well "soon"

Wish we had that function at NK... we do have foreflight...how does the app work? Has it proven to be accurate and trustworthy?

The app works well. I think itís pretty conservative but the turbulence models are all very helpful. I suspect itíll be helpful in the summertime when thunderstorm season is in full swing.

Definitely better than nothing. In the past we just received auto-print outs from ACARS which were typically wrong, out of date and printed 2 hours past the fixes involved.
