“We at Papillon Airways, Inc. are very happy with the Dyacon weather station. It has delivered exactly what we were looking for. Our temperatures during the summer get so hot that we often have to discontinue our helicopter flights. By having the weather station at our landing site at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, we can see exactly how hot it is and also how fast the temperature is rising. This has greatly improved our ability to anticipate the need to stop operations. We have had fewer interruptions to our operations since installing the weather station.
We are very impressed with the reliability of the unit. Our Verizon coverage is very weak at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, however, we have only lost the signal once this year and that was due to a Verizon failure. All in all this has been a very good investment. Papillon highly recommends the Dyacon Weather Station and their superb support.”

“For the last 4 years we have been using Eugene’s system with text message access with great success. The equipment is very reliable, provides a timely and accurate transmission of important airport weather. We have had several pilots use the weather data while in-flight to determine if they needed to divert because of unfavorable or high winds from many miles away.
At our small airport we have been able to decrease aircraft over flights to check winds which also helps us decrease operational noise signatures because pilots can check winds similar to a Metar report at a fraction of the cost.”
