The weather report is vital for the safety of airborne operations. It contributes to the comfort of the passengers and to the establishment of faster and economic routes and regular flights.
Due to its peculiarities, however, the air transportation requires a field of this science specifically directed to its necessities. Therefore, all the services concerning the Aeronautical Meteorology are provided in Brazil by DECEA through a complex structure of radars, meteorological stations, centers of coordination and other resources installed all over the nation.
And as the air traffic flow grows, and consequently the necessity of an optimized use of the airspace, the meteorological information becomes more essential to the Control Center.
