The AWW addresses weather phenomena that can adversely affect airport ground operations. Information contained in this product is useful to airport managers, fixed-based operators, airline ground personnel, and others responsible for the safety of ground operations. in emergency preparedness planning is imperative for providing essential services. Ultimately, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that an airport is safe and well managed. Since most GA airports are publicly owned, that responsibility typically falls on the city, county, or airport authority.

This information is an essential component of an airport’s aviation weather services. Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) AWOS is an airport weather system that provides a continuous report on current weather conditions. It enables safer and more efficient operations for airlines and airports.

Thus, making your airport a safer, more efficient operation. Planning for Severe Weather Increases Overall Safety. One of these risks you can plan for effectively is severe weather.

With the right tools by your side, you can be prepared for lightning, wind, hail, and other dangerous weather. convective weather.

In addition to safety, convective weather poses a problem for the efficient operation of the NAS. Thunderstorms and related phenomena can close airports, degrade airport capacities for acceptance and departure, and hinder or stop ground operations.

Convective hazards en route lead to rerouting and diversions that result in. Total lightning detection, automated alerting, and multiple sources of weather information are all essential components of safe and efficient airport operations. We support airports across the U.S.

and abroad with: Total lightning detection and automated alerting systems; Severe weather monitoring for diversions and icing events.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issues forecasts addressing the terminal and enroute area, and these are the basis for decisions made by most airlines.

Up-to-date and accurate information about thunderstorms, the location of lightning, the beginning time of snow or ice at an airport, temperature and pressure data are crucial for safe and.

Rapid technological advances impact the aviation industry. Airports, airlines, and air traffic management are transforming to become more effective and efficient, particularly when it comes to sensors and capturing weather data. When it comes to safe and reliable airport operations, the weather is a key element to consider.

Chapter 1—Airport Operations, Safety, and Emergency Management—provides an introduction to Airport Operations (Ops) as domains responsible for the effective and efficient planning, implementation, and control of the production of air service at commercial and general aviation (GA) airports.

The primary functions of Ops include sustaining. Aviation Routine Weather Report (METAR) and Aviation Selected Special Weather (SPECI) report.

This informa-tion is essential for safe and efficient aviation operations, and is used by the public to plan day-to-day activities. ASOS also provides valuable information for the hydrometeorologic, climatologic, and meteorologic re-search communities.

Operationsâ Running a Safe, Secure and Efficient Airport commercial service airports have specific IROPS plan requirements, all airports should plan for irregular operations.

This planning should include input from airport planning, environ- mental, engineering and maintenance staff, as appropriate to the airport. To deal with the upcoming weather event, the Port Authority today announced that it has taken significant measures to ensure safe, efficient operations at its airports, tunnels, bridges and PATH.

that new concepts and new ideas can be swiftly integrated into ongoing operations. The aviation weather research and development process should seek continuing and in-depth involvement with all users, especially the pilots, controllers, forecasters, and dispatchers who depend on weather information to facilitate safe and efficient operations.

Airport operations and ground operations teams work to secure the safety of aircraft, equipment, and passengers but these teams also need to keep themselves safe when severe weather rolls in. In this report, we explore their top concerns and the tools they use for monitoring and alerting.

Weather information is one of the essential tools for management of the air space and conducting air- 2. craft operations in a safe and efficient manner.

Aviation weather services must be considered an integral part of the air traffic system providing detailed and up-to-the-minute information in a form.

efficient airport operations A tailored solution for every challenge No two airports are the same. Because each faces its own unique set of weather-related challenges, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to weather observations and severe weather mitigation.

Severe weather is broadly defined as weather that.The national Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) or, in some cases, the air navigation service provider, is a primary user of weather services, ensuring efficient flight operations and aviation safety. Many NMSs are also designated as the meteorological authority and are thus responsible for regulating the provision of weather services for.airport, the type of soil, local drainage and vegetation, and the requirements of rescue and fire-fighting vehicles.
