No more formulas or assumptions. The Virtower system has provided our airport and community invaluable live data allowing us a better understanding of the true number of operations that are occurring at our airport. This data is critical for our planning as well as funding purposes.
In our case, using the Virtower system we are able to gather specific data on the tremendous demand flight training has had on our operations such as the number of touch and goes, flight dispatch trends, and the ability to address noise complaints with real hard data.
In 26 years of Airport Management at a non-towered airport, I have never had this much information at my fingertips.
