“How To” Add “1800WXbrief” To Your Mobile



LeidosMobileSAFE is all about providing resources to our members, making flying smarter and safer. The new 1800WXbrief mobile capability is super fast and usable. They do *not* yet have an app for this so here is a way to save the link to your mobile so it is one-tap available. This approved FAA site not only provides great weather, you can open or close your flight plan with just a tap!


Just open in your phone brower then click the “more” or “share” option like you were going to share or e-mail this link to a friend. An option present here on most systems will say “save to home screen.” This will embed a link on your mobile so one tap will give you access.


BTW, this is *your* account when logged in and will save and present your customized briefing preferences everytime for your geographic area and in the order you set; super-good safety!
