MM Aviation has been awarded a contract with Wiking Helicopters GMBH, a German heli-operator operating helicopters supporting windfarms off the coast of Essex, UK. Wiking will operate from Great Oakley Airfield in Suffolk (South West of Harwich). MM Aviation will upgrade the airfield with our renowned Auto and Semi-auto METAR system. MM Aviation is responsible for the entire installation including ground works, sensor installations, cloud aggregation and processing of data, support and maintenance.
MM Aviation is also installing IFIS, In-flight Information System, as an integral part of the services. IFIS will offer the Wiking pilots in-cockpit live information about the weather status at Great Oakley plus alternates. This will enable the pilots to plan their return flights opting for landings at secondary airfields, Wattisham (EGUW) or Southend (EGMC), if visibility and weather does not permit landing at the primary (Great Oakley).
