- 24/7 TOWER-LIKE services for any airport or heliport anywhere
- AFFORDABLE, instantly deployed and easily maintained
- UNIQUE, nothing compares
- The perfect AIRPORT IMPROVEMENT for any airport or heliport
The Ultimate airport improvement
Air traffic, weather and advisory services are necessary for flight operations. Traditionally, the only way to provide these services has been human-staffed, air traffic control towers, human weather observers, and/or AWOS.
For most, smaller airports and heliports traditional solutions are too costly, too complex, non-sustainable and impractical. Unable to provide these essential services, many of the world’s airports and heliports are of limited value for flight operations. Pavement and lighting is not enough.
MicroTower offers an affordable simple solution that can meet these operational needs.
- A 100% self-contained, SMART, off-grid solution for any smaller non-towered airport or heliport
- Providing Tower-like services 24/7 (ATAS) to pilots at any smaller airport or heliport anywhere
- ATAS and METAR (weather) are needed by all flight operations
- MicroTower provides both ATAS and METAR, quickly, affordably, and sustainably, anywhere
S-M-A-R-T – As true artificial intelligence MicroTower knows an airport’s runways, approaches, traffic patterns, is aware of area traffic, senses real-time weather, and even monitors your airport’s traffic frequency.
Like a human air traffic controller, MicroTower … Observes, Knows, Evaluates, Prioritizes the information it provides to pilots by listening speaking directly to pilots by radio, to maximize the use of your airport/heliport.

“If we wanted to build just another AWOS,
… that’s what we would have done.”
David Wartofsky, CEO & Inventor
“The MicroTower is a ‘must have’ if operating a flight school or an active, un-controlled field. I only WISH I'd had these at the many remote strips I have operated out of in third world countries."
SEL, SES, MEL, Comm/Inst, A&P, CFIA, 2000+ hours, former MAF pilot, LATAM
"As a beginning pilot who learned to fly at a Microtower airport, I have a hard time understanding how it's not required at other airports. Radioing ahead in the hopes that someone is around to give an update on conditions seems antiquated and makes me uncomfortable."
Brian, Single Engine Recreational Pilot, 70 hours
“I was wondering if you have plans to install your MicroTower in Europe. I have just starting flying over here and would love to see this system in action at the many non-towered GA Fields.”
Juan G., pilot in Spain
“The MicroTower with the three clicks for weather and four clicks for radio check, took one less item off the stress meter to get into the air. Excellent system.”
Mike A., Former student pilot at VKX, PPL, 170 hours
“I wish all non-towered airfields had such a quick and convenient source of current weather conditions. It is a huge help when flying at KVKX.”
Rick F., airline pilot, former military
“I use the MicroTower system at Potomac Airfield and at the Annapolis airport where it greatly assists pilots, improving safety and traffic control.”
"MicroTower has been a great asset to our airfield which is located in very congested air space. It is easy to operate and extremely accurate in providing current weather conditions. I highly recommend this system to anyone considering it over the alternatives."
Alex, private pilot
“I love MicroTower! It’s real-time information, unlike ATIS that’s minutes old. I also especially like the communications check capability that MicroTower offers. I’ve been using MicroTower at Washington Executive and Potomac Airfield for several years and wish other airports had it.”
Charlie M., CFII, former Air Force pilot and retired Brigadier General
"I learned to fly at an airport with MicroTower. I was very surprised to find out it is not available everywhere else. Why ?"
Eugen L., private pilot
“MicroTower adds one more tool to support pilots, giving them better situational awareness to help ensure safety. “
Mike R. private pilot
The State of South Dakota does not participate in routine maintenance costs for AWOS systems – putting traditional AWOS systems out of the reach of small airports from a cost standpoint – so we were looking for a lower cost solution for weather reporting at small rural GA airports. The response of pilots and operators has been overwhelmingly positive. If we didn’t have MicroTower systems, we would likely not have anything.
