AUTOMATED ADVISORY NEVER MISSES A CALL Advisories are provided to pilots within about 10-15 miles of the airport in response to making 3 clicks on the airport's Unicom/CTAF (the number of clicks and range can be adjusted by the airport).
PILOT "click, click, click"
SUPERAWOS "Good afternoon, this
is XYZ Airfield, automated advisory. Wind 220 at 12, altimeter 29.92.
Conditions favor runway 18, right traffic, listen for traffic."
The system is aware of your specific airports runways and configuration, Unicom frequency use, and local operating preferences. It also continuously measures current weather data and balances the relative importance of each bit of information against the level of congestion on the Unicom frequency. This patented technology ensures that each Advisory contains only the most important information, appropriate to the level of congestion on the Unicom frequency and tailored to your specific airports needs.
Pilots to Significant Conditions
appropriate, the system alerts pilots to significant conditions by modifying its Advisory
to include warnings of Possible Ground
Fog, Crosswinds, Windshear and High Density Altitude. (Neat, eh?).
Alerts Pilots to Significant Wind Changes from Last Advisory Since the system knows your airports runways, if the vector wind component along any runway should shift significantly, or a wind-shear or crosswind come up suddenly after a recent advisory, the system will automatically alert pilots to these new and important changed conditions:
SUPERAWOS "XYZ Airfield, Updated Advisory, wind now 220 at 16, Caution Crosswind, Windshear"
Runway Advisory Since the system is aware of your airports runway configuration, winds AND traffic,
it will actually call a specific runway based on prevailing
winds and an analysis of aircraft transmission patterns of other aircraft on
unicom; calling the runway only when conditions unambiguously recommend one runway over
another and when there is no potential for conflicting traffic.
Alerts Inbound Pilots to the Presence of Other Air Traffic in the Pattern As you tune to the unicom frequency and request an advisory from the system, if traffic has been recently using the frequency the system will tell you For Runway, Listen for Traffic. If no one has been using the frequency for a while the system changes this message to For Runway, Pilots Discretion.
