SayWeather™ Automated Unicom Weather Advisory System in Canada
Clearwater, Florida, USA- July 3, 2018
Connectsix LLC announced today a delivery of its first Canadian SayWeather system ( to Niagara Central- Dorothy Rungeling Airport (CNQ3) in Welland, Ontario.
SayWeather is an automated airport weather reporting system that operates on the airport’s UNICOM frequency. It is an affordable alternative ($4,795USD/$6,300CAD) for airports without an operational AWOS or LWIS. SayWeather provides airport operators and pilots with a real-time weather advisory when keying their microphone four times- the system responds with a succinct audio advisory of wind speed, direction, gusts, temperature, dewpoint, altimeter setting and density altitude. The weather information is also available via the Internet. SayWeather optionally provides pilot-activated airport lighting control or works in tandem with an airport’s existing lighting system.
“There are subtle differences between Canadian and US airport weather advisories. We adjusted SayWeather before making it available to Canadian airports. COPA was extremely helpful in this process and their guidance made the transition of SayWeather to Canada a success. We’re excited to have Niagara Central as our first Canadian SayWeather airport,” said Scott Samson, Co-founder of Connectsix.
Niagara Central Airport is located in the Niagara Region between lakes Ontario and Erie, and is home to Niagara Skydive Centre Inc., 87 Eagle Squadron Air Cadets, COPA Flight 149, and the St. Catharines Flying Club. The airport also serves a multitude of clients requiring inside hangar space, outside tie-downs, private hangars, and floatplane access. Bob Cullen, Niagara Central Airport’s manager, notes “Due to the Multi Use of our airport we were in need of an Advisory System exactly like this. When we started researching what was out there the SayWeather system was most appealing. The SayWeather System does everything and more that the sales people at SayWeather tell you.”
Connectsix LLC, the makers of the SayWeather™, will be demonstrating SayWeather systems as well as pilot-activated lighting options at the EAA AirVenture air show ( in Oshkosh, Wisconsin July 23-29, 2018, in Hangar B, booth 2083A.
