Reference Description & Comments
newWMO-No.1200, Guide to Aircraft-Based Observations (2017 edition) The WMO Guide to Aircraft-Based Observations supports WMO members with guidance on the derivation, management and provision on the WMO Information Systems of meteorological obserations made from aircraft platforms. In particular it describes and provides guidance on the provision of data and best practice operation of the WMO AMDAR observing system. It additionally provides guidance on the management of other aircraft-based observations that might be derived from ICAO aircraft reports and from privately operated aircraft-based observing systems.

AMDAR Panel Flyer Aircraft Meteorological DAta Relay, The International AMDAR Program - Developed by the WMO AMDAR Panel and published by DWD, this publication is somewhat dated and does contain non-technical information that is no longer current and correct but the technical information is still relevant and useful.
AMDAR Reference Manual WMO-No. 958, 2003

Aircraft Meteorological Data Relay (AMDAR) Reference Manual- Developed by the WMO AMDAR Panel and published by WMO in 2003. Material in this document has now been either superceded or has been migrated into the WMO WIGOS regulatory material and the Guide on Instruments and Methods of Observation, WMO-No 8. For detailed guidance on aircraft-based observations, Members are now directed to the WMO-No.1200, Guide to Aircraft-Based Observations (2017 edition)
