The white paper provides information about how airports can stay competitive and improve safety by having access to accurate weather information with an Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS). The paper is intended for airport managers and aviation personnel interested in increasing their airport's safety, air traffic and revenue by improving airport accessibility with accurate, real-time weather information.
The white paper provides information about various options available for securing AWOS funding, including the federal grant-in-aid program known as the Airport Improvement Program (AIP). It also includes information about grants and other funding initiatives from state and local governments, as well as options for private capital investment partners.
Finally, the paper offers insights on the different levels and types of AWOS available and how an airport can effectively select the type of AWOS appropriate for its facility's safety needs. For airports considering installing an AWOS, the white paper suggests several important criteria to consider in selecting and evaluating an AWOS partner.
