“Prior to the installation of the Belfort AWOS AV system, the closest weather reporting station available to pilots operating out of Cottonwood was 19 miles away in Sedona, AZ. The new AWOS will also be available to broadcast custom messages to pilots letting them know the local conditions such as airport closures or construction on the airport that would limit airport operations. The availability of local conditions benefit the pilots and improves operational safety at the airport”, this according to Morgan Scott, Cottonwood Airport Manager.
“We are gratified that the City of Cottonwood selected the Belfort AWOS AV. This shows a real commitment to flight safety as well as to increasing the operational capabilities of the airport“, according to Ralph Petragnani, VP Sales & Marketing for Belfort.
Belfort Instrument Company has been a leading provider of weather instruments to government, professional meteorology and aviation markets for over 130 years. Detailed information can be found at www.belfortinstrument.com.
