CheckWX.com is intended as a tool to help pilots better visualize weather data. It is not intended as a substitute for an official weather briefing obtained from a Flight Service Station. CheckWX.com does not meet the FAA requirements for an official pre-flight weather briefing. Therefore, it's important that pilots still call and obtain an official FSS pre-flight weather briefing.
