New control tower for Land's End airport

News Release No 5/2012

 

In preparation for the construction of  a new air traffic control tower at Land's End, a temporary VCR has been set up in which MetEngUK engineers today completed the installation of state-of-the-art systems to provide the controllers with accurate and reliable meteorological data throughout the projected 6-12 month construction period.

 

The temporary aviation barometer has been based on Vaisala's widely used PA50 system, to provide accurate pressure, temperature and humidity data. The temporary wind system makes use of industry-standard WA151 wind sensors, feeding a WD50 averaging display unit to make available a wealth of surface wind data for the three main runways, including head and cross winds.
