Stratus and ForeFlight
The Stratus is an ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) receiver that is the easiest, least expensive way to get subscription-free weather on your iPad. Stratus is a totally wireless, portable receiver that streams NEXRAD radar, text weather, TFRs and GPS position to the ForeFlight app—all without a monthly subscription. Simply turn on Stratus, connect to your iPad and go flying. There are no wires, no subscriptions and no hassles.
The Stratus may be purchased online at Sporty's or directly from the manufacturer at Appareo.
ForeFlight is the essential iPhone and iPad flight companion for any pilot. It's your single source for charts, plates, weather, airports, hotels, flight plan filing, and more. ForeFlight Mobile is a native iPhone/iPad application, meaning it runs on the device, giving a familiar visual experience and great responsiveness. ForeFlight is the software that runs on the iPad or iPhone and uses real-time weather data received while airborne from Stratus. ForeFlight requires a yearly subscription - costs vary depending on the package you want. Learn More
