Huntsville, AL – Baron, the worldwide provider of critical weather intelligence, announces Baron Flight Cross section, an exclusive new feature for the Baron Weather API for Aviation, a data distribution service which enables quick and easy integration of quality-controlled, industry-leading data into a variety of applications. Baron Flight Cross Section provides customers with detailed weather information for every altitude between takeoff and landing.

All of these global data products, and all other weather data provided by Baron, is compiled from an array of public and private sources, then quality controlled for the best possible timeliness and accuracy.

To ensure maximum up-time and smooth performance, Baron Weather API for Aviation includes a network of state-of-the-art data centers with built-in scalability designed to handle large usage demands.
