CALSTAR Installs Belfort AWOS

Belfort Instrument Company, one of the country’s oldest meteorological sensor and meteorological system manufactures, has installed its DigiWxTM Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) at the George L Mee Memorial Hospital (09CA), King City, CA.

The AWOS AV provides real-time wind speed, wind direction, temperature, relative humidity, dewpoint and altimeter setting, visibility, and cloud height information on a graphical display, over a discrete VHF frequency, via dial-in telephone, and on the Internet.

Jim Arthur, director of operations says” The addition of the Belfort AWOS continues CALSTAR’s commitment to the highest standard of safe flight operations and service to the community”. He continues, “We now have real-time weather reporting at the George L Mee Memorial hospital heliport greatly enhancing our helicopter operations under Instrument Flight Rules”.
