Weather data enhancements bring Spire efficiencies to myairops product
Spire's AI-powered weather forecasting will give myairops customers fully integrated weather within the flight platform, improving operational efficiency. It will also power weather-based data dashboards and map overlays.
myairops is enhancing its flight product with situational awareness and data insights from Spire.

myairops continues to strengthen its strategic data partnership with Spire Global with the integration of Spire Weather situational awareness and data insights into its aviation software.

Utilising Spire's point optimised forecast covering global airports, myairops' customers will be automatically notified when weather conditions are outside the operators defined minima and supply the latest forecast information directly within the platform. Taking into account both natural and man-made variables at each specific airport, myairops will access AI-powered accurate location-specific weather forecasts as input into its leading aviation platform.

“Building on our existing strategic relationship with Spire was the natural choice following our successful integration of its satellite-based ADS-B tracking data, which our customers have used to automate flight following and improve other operational aspects which rely on accurate location data,” says president and managing director Tim Ford. “Through the use of Spire's AI-powered weather forecast capability, we will shortly be offering our customers fully integrated weather within our platform. This will enable further automation to provide our customers with further operational efficiencies, as well as powering our weather-based data dashboards and map overlays.”

“Airports are a critical cog in the logistics sphere and exert a significant bearing on the global supply network, which is highly interconnected. A weather-related delay at one airport may require subsequent players to adjust their operations and create a ripple effect of delays,” adds Spire general manager of weather and earth intelligence Mike Eilts. “Spire Weather is proud to equip aviation tech leaders such as myairops with reliable, location-specific optimised weather forecasts to ensure the smooth delivery of operations.”
