"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 respose of pilots and operators has been overwhelmingly positive. If we didn't have MicroTower systems, we would likely not have anything."

Bruce Lindholm
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."

Jon Becker
Aeronautics Planning Engineer, SDDOT Office of Aeronautics

"I wish all non-towered airfields had such a quick and convenient source of current weather conditions. It is a huge help when flying."

Rick F.
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."
