After three years of persistence, airport weather information from every SuperAWOS across the USA is now available over XM Weather, providing weather-in-the-cockpit to pilots from all SuperAWOS sites, for free.
David Wartofsky, owner of Maryland’s Potomac Airfield, and inventor of SuperAWOS comments, “The weather information industry has become a very strange place: FAA actively blocking accurate weather information from being given to pilots to protect FAA’s own outdated networks and to protect over-priced business concessions for various federal contractors, while in the meantime, the private sector just keeps delivering the results pilots really need.”
XM satellite weather has been delivering cost-effective, accurate, and reliable in-cockpit weather to pilots nationwide, saving lives every day, Wartofsky noted. “Airport surface reports are just airport surface reports, the wind is the wind, the temperature is the temperature, the visibility is the visibility; there’s not much to argue about, pilots just need to know what it is.”
Wartofsky adds, “As a pilot I knew XM satellite weather has become the real way pilots actually get their weather enroute these days. When was the last time a pilot had to ask a briefer for a report over VHF? We knew we needed to plug into the right system to deliver safety and value to pilots, the real customers in this industry.”
