Midwest ATC has been providing weather observing and reporting services since 1978. Starting with one location, Midwest ATC has provided weather services to dozens of airports throughout the U.S. and Canada. Members of our operational team are LAWRS (Limited Aviation Weather Reporting Station) certified by the FAA and routinely provide augmentation and backup of automated weather systems (ASOS, AWSS, AWOS-C), as well as manually generated weather observations where required or necessary. In addition to weather observation services, our Canada team provided AIS (Airman Information Service) services to include provision of aviation forecasts, weather advisories and warnings, and flight weather briefings in support of local flight operations. We recently added weather observation and forecasting services at Keesler Air Force Base in Keesler, MS. These services support safe, effective airfield, flying and ground operations, and resource protection for Keesler Air Force Base, and transient aircrews and are essential to the safety and success of the 81st Training Wing (TRW) and the 403rd Wing (WG), which carries out Hurricane Hunter and tactical airlift missions.
Rigorous quality control measures help us ensure that we deliver the highest quality of weather observing and reporting services to our customers.
