Observator has developed a special weather system to be used for (unmanned) heliports. The system broadcast (METAR information) contain essential weather information like:


Danish regulations regarding Heliports:

BL 3-8 Bestemmelser om etablering og drift af helikopterflyvepladser

BL 7-18 Bestemmelser om meteorologisk udstyr på flyvepladser


ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service):

The professional system can be provided with an additional ATIS module to inform the pilot by automatic voice message via a standard VHF radio. The OMC-141 Automatic Terminal Information Service, or ATIS, is a continuous broadcast of recorded non-control weather information for unmanned hospitals, offshore or wind energy platforms.

Helicopter pilots usually listen to an available ATIS broadcast before the final approach, in order to have a safe landing on the platform. The helipilot can, by using the VHF radio, request the actual weather information (by automatic voice message) from the unmanned station.
