Sacramento, CA (December 12, 2005) —All Weather, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high accuracy, high dependability weather information systems and meteorological sensors, today announced that it has partnered with the McClellan Aviation Museum Foundation to create a hands-on, real data, weather station for the new Aerospace Learning Center at Freedom Park, California. Part of a $7M expansion, the new learning center will house 21 highly engaging displays to give visitors an interactive experience related to aviation, from pilot to mechanic to air traffic controller.
One of the main Learning Center displays concerns weather. The McClellan Foundation has chosen All Weather, Inc., a world leader in Automated Weather Observing Systems (AWOS), to develop an interactive weather station for visitors to learn how weather information is collected, interpreted, and disseminated. AWI has donated over US$45,000 in equipment to the project and will work with the well-known firm, Claro Creative Studios, to design the exhibit for maximum interaction and educational benefits. Visitors and students will have hands-on experiences with the weather sensors/equipment and learn how they perform their tasks. In addition, they will be able to observe real time weather, interact with various screen displays, and hear the radio broadcast that goes out to pilots over the airways.
To complement the weather station, designers envision the visitor experiencing rain, lightning strikes all around them, cold winds, and tornadoes developing on the horizon. The possibilities are almost endless.
“AWI and its employees, who are donating all of the equipment and time to the Center, are excited about working with the Foundation and contributing to the McClellan Aerospace Learning Center in this most worthy community project,” stated Gary Wagner, CEO of All Weather, Inc. “The region’s significant aerospace history is well reflected in the incredible collection of more than 30 historically relevant aircraft on display, and the detailed equipment and memorabilia they have built and maintained.”
Until the Learning Center is complete, a scaled down version of the weather station has been installed.
