Airport Weather System:
The Siegerland Airport has a compete system for measuring and recording all weather data relevant to the airport. During operating hours, the data is updated every 30 minutes and, as an electronic data record (METAR), then fed into the world-wide aviation weather monitoring network. Weather information is also available by radio or telephone (see ATIS above).
Ice Warning System:
In the touchdown zones and down the center of our runway, special sensors record the temperature and moisture development. This data undergoes a computer evaluation, which gives us additional information as to where and when winter services are required.
A Saab friction tester can determine the current runway braking conditions and pass them on to pilots whenever necessary.
