Should you pack an umbrella or sunscreen? To get the latest weather conditions at your destination, you might check your smartphone’s weather app. If you’re a pilot, though, you need to know precisely what you’re flying into. The Jefferson County International Airport needed an Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) for real-time weather reporting. Reid Middleton performed the site development and equipment procurement under an aggressive schedule, working with the FAA to save valuable time and meet the grant deadline. Pilots can now tune in to the system on their VHF radios, and the public can also access the information on their phones, the internet, and media outlets.
