  1. Hello. I’m currently attempting to make one of these maps for my son who enjoys aviation and decided to use your code but I’m ran into many errors and issues and was wondering if we could converse a but to help me understand better what I need to do. I’m very new to the Raspberry Pi and Python so I apologize for asking a ton of questions. Thank you for your help.

  2. Hi,
    I flew in MN for a bit, Flying Cloud. I am now in a bit warmer climate, Georgia.

    I am having issues with the image file. It extracts to over 15gig.
    I used 7zip and PeaZip with exactly the same results. 7zip did report the file was corrupted. I downloaded it twice. The compressed file size was the same. When decompressing, a bit over 90% shows under 4 gig, but then the last few percent rabidly goes to the 15 gig. What compression software did you use? I wouldn’t think that it should matter, but ……

  3. Hey! I keep getting the Pi console saying my airport followed by No and then N/A below that. Any idea on how I can fix this?


  4. When I run the startup it gives me the message below, then none of the lights will correspond to what i have on the airport list

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/NeoSectional/metar.py” line 139, in
    NameError: name ‘module’ is not defined

    any ideas? Im running it on a Raspberry Pi 2B if that matters.

    1. Hi JD,

      Please check out V3 which we will be releasing later this week. I think it may resolve your issue or provide more insight into what the root cause is.

      Let me know if you have further questions,


  5. Hello Bill,

    Reference to your Live Metar Sectional, great job! Your explanation and layout was easy follow, I have completed my build, came out pretty good. When launching the program it appeared to crash and I took a picture of the error. In addition, although I followed the step by step process regarding connecting to the Wi-Fi, but was unable to determine if it works. As the Raspi booted up, i have never seen the IP address display. any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Clear skies!


    1. To find the IP on your pi from the command line type in hostname -I and hit return. It will display the IP address the pi currently has assigned to it. We are about to release V3 which I recommend you upgrading to as it will take a lot of the guess work out of troubleshooting.



    2. Hi Scott,

      Try – Ctrl + Alt + F2 should kick you out of the script and back to the command prompt. Run hostname -I to reveal the iP address the pi is assigned.
