Not a very convincing article from what Ive read so far. One of the major things they said is that we ate not concerned with aviation meteorology.
That is entirely untrue. We are extremely interested in what happens aloft, as upper air conditions indicate changing weather and the presence of
nearing cold fronts and pressure systems. We also forecast for icing and turbulence for aircraft. I doubt you or any of the people that wrote that
article would even know what a TAF is, right?
And also, why are all our upper air met stations located at airports or airfields? Why would we bother if we weren't concerned with aviation
meteorology, and why would we even launch weather balloons, which give us data up to 90,000ft?
Would be an aweful waste of money
