Today, every device which is connected to the Internet collects, shares and augments data of each other. This key feature fosters researchers to use the power of sensors while designing intelligent and cognitive systems. One of the widespread usage area of sensors is weather data acquisition because of their place in internet of things. In previous works, it is not found a well-coordinated approach for collecting and sharing weather data in aircraft. In our approach, we propose a novel system which has the capability of self-exploring, self-learning and self-decision under different weather circumstances. An aircraft equipped by powerful sensors is expected to designate its next step according to weather data including deciding whether to fly or flight safety while on air. By applying genetic (evolutionary) algorithm to aircraft sensors, it becomes possible to optimize parameters of remote sensing devices and analyze them in terms of weather data. According to IOT mechanism of our system, it is provided for all electronic devices to be labeled and to be ready for data exchange. Despite the fact that every mechanism works properly in our system, one prominent limitation becomes discontinuous data flow between different sensors. As a result, our system becomes capable of preventing problems while weather data is being shared among different devices.
