Belfort Instrument Co.has installed an AWOS AV at the Eastport Municipal Airport (EPM) in Eastport, Maine.
The Belfort Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS AV) provides pilots with Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Wind Gusts, Temperature, Humidity, Dewpoint, Altimeter Setting, Density Altitude, and Visibility.
The Eastport AWOS information will be available via VHF broadcast (122.8), telephone (207-853-0682), as well as over the internet.
“The airport is the most eastern airport in the United States, very close to the Canadian border, so the weather can be unpredictable. The new Belfort AWOS will now provide real-time weather reporting to pilots letting them know the most current local conditions. The availability of local conditions benefit the pilots and improves operational safety at the airport,” said Steve Trieber, Eastport Airport manager.
