SuperAWOS provides much more than standard AWOS systems. SuperAWOS provides:

  • Automated greetings and explains how to use it's services.
  • Complete advisories including weather, traffic, and runway information,
  • 2-way radio check, and
  • Pre-flight planning information.

SuperAWOS is fairly intelligent and adaptive, giving additional weather information when the situation requires it. When conditions change significantly SuperAWOS gives unsolicited updates explaining what has changed. This automated service sits right on the normal Unicom frequency, allowing you better situational awareness by not having to change to a separate frequency. To see the web-based airport data display (shown at left). Click See Remote Data in the top menu bar. Select "graphical data" for any airport (such as Healdsburg or Little River) from the list that appears.
