In support of the growing traffic and the need for separate ATIS broadcasts for arrivals and departures, Billund Airport has upgraded to the latest Insero AviCast solution from Insero Air Traffic Solutions.
Billund Airport, Denmark’s second largest airport, is seeing growth in traffic numbers and exceeding the 2019 pre-COVID traffic numbers. The implemented Insero AviCast provides separate Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS) voice broadcast of e.g. meteorological and runway condition information for the pilots in connection with arrivals and departures. The implemented system may later be upgraded to also support datalink transmissions of the ATIS (I.e. D-ATIS).
“The solution allows for specific information, only relevant to either arriving or departing traffic. We gain less frequency load, more capacity and increased Safety. What’s not to like,” Mike Rosenstrøm, Head of Airport Operations, Billund Airport.
AviCast can run in fully automatic mode and integrates with the existing Insero AWOS (Automatic Weather Observation System), so no actions are required from Air Traffic Control (ATC) during daily operations. This naturally includes support for the latest runway condition report format.
Michael H. Tandrup, CEO at Insero Air Traffic Solutions adds:
“With Billund Airport fielding the Insero AviCast solution in support of their ATIS needs, we are further expanding the customer-base for this highly scalable and state-of-the-art solution, which supports the operational needs in relation to ATIS, D-ATIS and/or VOLMET and whether for one or many aerodromes“.
Insero AviCast is the latest generation of the Insero broadcasting solutions, building on many years of experience and operational use, yet based on a modern service-oriented server architecture and secure browser-based web applications.
