“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.”
