Loveland, Colorado - Pilots need accurate weather information for proper flight planning. There are many sources of forecasts and weather information. Weather cameras have recently become a very valuable resource to complement these other sources of weather information by providing a real-time picture of the weather described in forecasts and reports. Airport View is continuing to expand its weather camera network and is inviting owners of weather cameras to submit their cameras for listing on AirportView.net.

Airport View started as a weather camera network of high-resolution cameras at selected airports in Colorado. These cameras quickly became popular web destinations for pilots using those airports. Adding more cameras helps pilots confirm conditions all along their planned flight path. The fastest way to expand the weather camera network is to include existing cameras.

"Many cameras are already out there, owned by businesses, state DOT agencies and others," said Ray Franklin, technology director for Airport View. "Finding the right ones for flight planning can be difficult. We decided to tackle that challenge and put all the weather cameras into one place for better flight planning."

The AirportView.net web site is now accepting weather camera submissions. Anyone who owns a weather camera may submit it using a simple form. A link to the form is on the home page.

Most cameras that show weather conditions are welcomed. "Our preference is for cameras that fill the frame with mostly sky," Franklin said. "A 50-50 split is OK, and we will consider other framings if the view is of particular value to local pilots." Visit the Airport View web site to submit a camera.
