Weather is one of the greatest challenges to flying. Uncontrollable and often difficult to predict, weather can cause the cancellation of a planned flight or flying event but it can also alter the outcome of an ongoing flight.
One lucky U.S. pilot who introduces 5 or more girls/women to flying during the 2012 Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week will win a one-year subscription to Baron’s QuikLink, worth nearly $600, and will gain access to a wealth of highly accurate and up-to-date weather information through Baron‘s most advanced internet-based plan, the Wings Elite plan.
Baron has been leading meteorological innovations for over twenty years. During that time, they have developed incredibly precise storm tracking and Doppler radar technologies. Their pioneering work with XM Radio resulted in the XM WX Satellite Weather service, a leading provider of datalink weather information for the United States.
Staffed by highly trained meteorologists who ensure the accuracy and timeliness of Baron‘s data, they have deployed weather monitoring systems in many countries. In addition, their data compression techniques are well-suited to mobile environments, requiring little bandwidth to distribute a wealth of high-accuracy data products.
We welcome Baron Services as our newest Bronze sponsor, thank them for their contribution to keep one of our generous pilots, better informed and safer.
