Data mining is a process used for the discovery of data correlation; the technique includes successful applications in the mass data field. Aeronautic meteorology is one of them. It includes the observation and forecast of meteorological events and parameters such as turbulence, rain, frost, fog, thunderstorm, etc. that affect flight operations. Aeronautic meteorology studies in the field of aviation. Understanding meteorological events is not possible without the observation of many parameters which are related to each other. Previous mass data should be overviewed for the future forecast. Expert opinions are also necessary in the process of analysis. At this point, data mining makes a great contribution to the analysis of mass data. This study aims at revealing the correlation between meteorological parameters that affect aviation and finding rules by classification. Forecasts were improved with relational analysis. As a result, reliable rules were identified that include estimation of fog, rain, snow, hail and thunderstorm events for Kayseri Erkilet Airport and these rules were analyzed in terms of their accuracy and reliability.
