“The airport is the most eastern airport in the United States, very close to the Canadian border, so the weather can be unpredictable. The new Belfort AWOS will now provide real-time weather reporting to pilots letting them know the most current local conditions. The availability of local conditions benefit the pilots and improves operational safety at the airport”, this according to Steve Trieber, Eastport Airport Manager.

“We are gratified that the City of Eastport 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.
