SIGMA is a high-quality tool that very adequately presents weather hazards (such as Icing, Turbulence, Volcanic ash, etc) to your pilots. The service is a real-time weather alerting system which communicates through ACARS and assures your pilots are notified to new meteorological hazards related to the actual route in the FMS.
The service only apply the parts of hazardous weather that affect your flight which reduces pilot workload. Alerts are related to points in your flight plan instead of LAT/LONG. Warnings will be issued in case of adverse weather changes en-route.
SIGMA uses the world’s most advanced forecasts based on the high-resolution models from the UK Met Office.
