Aeronautical Meteorology

Aeronautical Meteorology is the field of meteorology applied to aviation that aims to contribute to the guarantee of safety standards, economy and efficiency of flights.

During the Chicago Conference in November 1944, in which the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) originated, it was established that member countries maintain a meteorological service in order to provide users with information on the atmospheric conditions necessary for the safety of air operations.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is a United Nations agency that technically assists ICAO in the development of specific meteorological standards and procedures for aviation and personnel training.
