EXPANDING Air TraveL
- 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 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 reather reporting at small rural GA airports. The respose of pilots and operators has been overwhelmingly positive. If we didn't have MicroTower systems, we would likely not have anything."
Manager Air Rail and Transit, State of South Dakota
"The MicroTower is a 'must have' if operating a flight school or an active, uncontrolled field. I only WISH I'd had these at the many remote strips I have operated out of in third world countries."

These systems have performed very well over the years, and Potomac Aviation has been responsive to the Department's needs. South Dakota DOT purchased 29 SuperAwos units from 2006 to 2012. These unites have been very useful to the aiport communities the serve. The most appealing reasons for purchasing them was their ease of installation and maintenance. The systems performs self-diagnostics, reporting, and component status each day. This is useful to airport management for replacing components when necessary."

"I wish all non-towered airfields had such a quick and convenient source of current weather conditions. It is a huge help when flying."
Arline Pilot, Former Military
"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 for several years and wish other airports had it."
