Helipad system

Weather is a crucial parameter for safe helicopter operations. Most of the helipads are located on difficult locations, e.g. near hospitals or offshore. Often there is no weather specialist present to inform the helicopter pilot about the local weather circumstances. During flight operations by night, this can be a big hazard.

Observator Instruments developed a special weather system for (unmanned) helipads. This professional system is provided with an ATIS module, which informs the pilot by an automatic voice message via the VHF radio.
