New Wisconsin Weather System Available To Pilots

by Hal Davis

WisDOT Bureau of Aeronautics

Dedicated computers to access AviationSentry™ are available at 57 airports throughout Wisconsin and two in the Michigan Upper Peninsula.

Free, easy to use, accurate weather information is now at your fingertips. Late last year, the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics partnered with Schneider Electric to provide pilots free access to AviationSentry™, a comprehensive, online source for aviation-specific weather information. I encourage you to read John Thivierge’s article in this issue to find out about the many innovative features this tool can provide pilots. After doing so, go to our web page: http://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/travel/air/pilot-info/weath-acc.aspx, click the link, and sign up for free access to AviationSentry™. All you need is an email address. Once registered, you will be able to access AviationSentry™ from any computer, tablet, or smartphone with Internet access. In addition, dedicated computers to access AviationSentry™ are available at 57 airports throughout Wisconsin and two in the Michigan Upper Peninsula. By providing this service, we hope everyone takes the time to review current weather conditions prior to a flight.
