What do our airports think about Virtower?

The Virtower system has been instrumental in dealing with noise complaints. I can now argue fact over perception. Worth every cent!

Virtower has provided us with valuable data that we otherwise would not have, resulting in the ability for us to make data driven decisions for the operation.

Watsonville Municipal Airport has been pleased with our implementation of Virtower. KWVI utilizes Virtower in our airport terminal lobby, operations center and management offices.

Virtower’s comprehensive offering has enhanced our “situational awareness”.

Give my friend Les Goldsmith, IACE a call to discuss all your Airport Operations needs. A fantastic program that we are happy to (finally) have at AUO!

I wanted to send a message letting you know what a huge help Virtower has been to me in our very active fire season. I can monitor aircraft over the fires and know when they are headed back to the airport for refueling.

Truly – this is a game changer for me.

Grant County Airport Manager

Virtower has the ability to make our life at the airport easier. Virtower’s user-friendly interface allows our airport to justify projects to the FAA with real-time data. The information that our airport relies on is now at the push of a button, and we don’t have to spend countless hours figuring out our airport operations.

We also use Virtower out on the airfield as another information tool to help limit the risk of runway incursions during peak operational hours with real-time data of aircraft positioning.

Virtower is a great system that does exactly what was promised. I can be confident in the data I receive.  The Virtower team made setup easy and they continue to go above and beyond supporting their customers.

Senior Manager of Aviation Planning

Our favorite use of VirTower is the ATC map and flight tags for tracking aircraft movements on the ground at RDU during peak AM/PM hours and zoomed out for in-range redeye arrivals on the overnight shifts. We like the predictor lines that emphasize rate of speed and direction of travel for airborne and taxiing aircraft. Another advantage of using the ATC tags is ICAO callsign identification for regional jet operators.

Delta, American, and United all have similar regional jet operators with the same aircraft type and very similar flight numbers, making it hard to identify callsigns and operators for controllers and reporting procedures. The ICAO identification alleviates those challenges.

We’re very pleased with the product and its capabilities.

The ability to retrieve reliable data is important, you can go back and look at specific timeframes and find out who was flying where during that period. Having access to the data is incredible. We’re entering an era where we have much better data on airports that traditionally did not have any objective aircraft counting going on. Now, I have an aircraft’s geographic position, with accurate detail, their altitude and the timestamp.

Virtower has provided immensely valuable operations data that has never-before been available to our airport. The ability to customize data reported for our airport made this system a great addition to our ability to not only track current operations but also make more informed decisions when planning for the future of the airport.

In the short time that we have had Virtower, it has been a game changer to understand the traffic at Reid-Hilliview Airport. With Virtower, we are able to determine with some level of accuracy the on-airport origin and destination of most flights.

In addition, we are able to pinpoint hotspots on the airport and now get real-time metrics on the number of aircraft that pass through those areas. And as a side benefit, Virtower will be helpful in collection of transient parking fees.

Hi Les, We would like to thank you and your Team for always being available and providing the most professional support. We are truly happy with the service that you provide and having the daily operations for our airport now is amazing!! We can now provide monthly reports to our city council with Virtower, it has everything that we needed all along!

Seeing our daily operations on our Taco Tuesday’s is always impressive to us!

Virtower is a valuable resource providing operations data and reporting, complementing our tower counts as well as granting us first time access to after-hours operations counts.

The real-time access to aircraft operations has become a necessity, allowing oversight of our flight school aircraft operations and locations in the air and on the ground.

The Virtower Program greatly assists airport operations and management of the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. Specifically, we utilize the program for accurate aircraft operation counts, especially during times when the air traffic control tower is closed; and to provide an accurate based aircraft count. In addition, we will use Virtower to assist justifying a full-length parallel taxiway for our main runway to enhance safety and efficiency.

Currently, aircraft positioning to/from the West side of the airport cross the active runway. Virtower will provide a very accurate method of data collection to illustrate the current amount of active runway crossings to be eliminated with the new taxiway extension project.

Virtower was worth every penny for the Wauchula Airport.

We have already witnessed an immense value for our operations staff.

Andrew Bennett
Executive Manager
Collier County Airport Authority IMM X01 MKY

The Virtower system has assisted us in researching noise complaints, manage our based aircraft, and refine our overall traffic counts.

On two separate occasions, we have been able to locate an aircraft with an active ELT. The system and the Virtower Team have exceeded our expectations.

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.
