Weather products and coverage areas may be subject to change without notice. Consult for latest information.


TAF InformationAn aerodrome TAF is a forecast - it will give the predicted weather conditions expected at an aerodrome, usually for a 9 or 24 hour period.


Metar ImageA METAR is a report giving the actual weather conditions at an aerodrome at the time of the report. METARs are typically issued every 30-60 minutes.


Satellite Image
The MLX770 delivers SAT IR imagery for selected geographic regions. SAT IR imagery shows the emission from the infrared portion of the solar spectrum. Bright areas represent cold high cloud tops. Dark areas represent warm ground and ocean surfaces.


Two-Way Text Messaging

MLX770 Data LinkThe MLX770 provides two-way text messaging from your airborne MFD via SMS text messaging to any ground-based SMS-capable mobile phones. Your family and friends can even send a text message to you in your airplane.


With the MLX770, you also have the ability to send and receive text messages while flying, allowing you to communicate with someone on the ground via an e-mail connection or a mobile telephone.
