Condition based brake service is just a guess. The pad wear sensors only know when they are worn out. There is nothing on my car that measures wear rate.
I am an airline pilot and we dont get any LR forecast. In fact i often just watch the BBC if I am working next day. The weather available to us on departure is usually accurate for the following duty period but is really a techie version of teletext. Having flown jets for some 13yrs maybe you do develop a slight weather sense but if a 13million pound computer in Bracknell cannot predict the weather, its unlikely we would be much better.
