XM Satellite Weather Services Expand


XM Satellite Weather announced at the Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In this week in Lakeland, Fla., that it will enhance its popular Aviator package, adding more features at no additional charge. “We’re excited to announce the expansion of coverage to Canada and Puerto Rico,” said XM spokesman Roderick MacKenzie. The package also will include Canadian weather products such as Weather Warnings, Outlooks, METARs, SIGMETs, and winds aloft. XM also said it will offer subscribers an “End of Season” package that allows them to put their payments on hold during the off-season when they don’t need the service.

Also at Sun ‘n Fun, WxWorx announced that its WxWorx on Wings datalink weather system will support the new XM Aviator product.
