On January 16, 2014, United Airlines flight 89 from Newark to Beijing departed at 12:55 p.m. Eastern, carrying 189 passengers and 16 crew members. Forty-five minutes into the flight, food and beverage service had just begun when the plane began to experience severe turbulence. Pilots were not expecting turbulence of that nature; it was so severe that it injured five flight attendants and the plane had to return to the Newark Liberty International Airport.
The aviation industry is in need of flight weather hazards forecasts that are timely, targeted, and not dependent on operations and planning managers to interpret potentially dangerous and costly situations. Our newest, patented model delivers better-defined turbulence, icing, and thunderstorm forecasts more frequently, based on global weather data models and a high definition U.S. model, which help to reduce the need for interpretation.
