XC weather

This is a great site for current conditions. Airfield nearby are Benson and Brize Norton to the north. As a rule of thumb, if any of them are showing a wind of 14mph or more then flying at the field maybe on the upper end of the flyable scale.

Is it going to rain?


Metox offers a weather radar showing rain failing in as little as 5min ago! Definitely worth checking it before you leave home!
