HIWAS being phased out - (Archive)

HIWAS – the hazardous in-flight WX service recordings available on VORs marked with a little inverted H on the sectional – is being phased out by the end of September 2019.

In light of the much richer and more effective WX updates availble with ADS-B In it makes a lot of sense to reallocate the resources necessary to maintain a legacy system fewer and pilots used (if they ever did).

Make use of the ADS-B In WX info streamed via Bluetooth to your EFB in both 3WF and 9ES (WX info is also available in 3WF directly on the GTNs, but not not 9ES’s G1000).
