Aviation digital data service adds agfs pdt

Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS)(AGFS PDT)

  • Web-based delivery mechanism

  • Located at and operated by the NWS Aviation Weather Center

  • Includes flight path vertical cross section data

  • Rave reviews by users

    • GA pilots: “Great site. Easy to use and navigate. Tax dollars for something really worthwhile. Keep up the good work.” “One of the best programmed, most smartly laid out, sights I have seen in a long time. The information is easily accessible and extremely useful. An unprecedented source of powerful, easily accessed weather information now in the hands of people who can benefit from it.”

    • FedEx pilot: “...this is the best aviation weather site I have access to. I especially like the flight planner mode. I have notified all my friends and have taken the liberty to load this site on the computers at work.”

    • Airline Dispatcher: “Ya'll must be in the genius category !! We use ADDS at work along with other cool stuff on the internet to back up our own system. the flight path tool is awesome ! I mean awesome...I can really use this kind of data on an hourly basis. Keep up the good work....are you sure ya'll work for the government ? Not what you'd expect from Uncle Sam....if you know what I mean. Fantastic !!

DFW Traffic Manager:

“We love this thing”

  • Land additional aircraft (that would have diverted)

  • Have arrivals ready when weather clears
