WEST HOUSTON AIRPORT (IWS) ADDS AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVATION SYSTEM (AWOS)

BALTIMORE, MD. – Belfort Instrument Company, one of the country’s oldest meteorological sensor and meteorological system manufactures, has installed their AWOS AV with Ceilometer at the West Houston Airport (IWS), Houston, Texas, and an FAA designated reliever airport with some 400 based aircraft, and 130,000 annual operations. 

The just installed Automated Weather Observation System provides pilots with Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Wind Gusts, Temperature, Humidity, Dewpoint, Altimeter Setting, Density Altitude, Visibility, Cloud Height and Cloud Cover.   The Airport AWOS information is accessible via VHF Radio and over the internet; www.digiwx-kiws.com

“The Belfort AWOS is one of a number of improvements we are making at our airport to increase operational safety and capabilities”, this according to Woody Lesikar, Airport Manager, he continues, “After looking at other systems, Belfort supplied us with a demo unit so we could try it before we purchased it. That really sold us on Belfort.  The AWOS system proved itself as a reliable performer with a minimum of maintenance. This is our 50th year and we bought the Belfort AWOS as our birthday present and to enhance the overall status of West Houston.    www.westhoustonairport.com/
