PMI Homestead BOS Weather Office is Newsworthy!
Recently the Weather Flight Office was featured in an article on the Homestead ARB website. The weather flight serves everyone at Homestead ARB, including the FL Air National Guard, Coast Guard, Customs and Border Patrol, and any transient aircrew that come through the base. Each client requires a different set of data including everything from surface winds, climb winds, adverse condition advisories, to wetness of the runway, wind speed and direction, and destination weather. Along with the various weather sites needed to obtain this information, Homestead ARB can meet its own needs with meteorological devices out on the flight line and a hand-held-all-inclusive portable device.
There are many challenges for weather flight like being on the southern tip of Florida surrounded by mostly water, and tropical storms and hurricanes that can occur June to November. Weather moves in quickly and can form in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the expertise of weather flight Homestead ARB is in good hands.
Thanks ladies and gentlemen for your dedication and expertise!

Both base personnel and the flight crew were duly impressed and thankful.

PMI Personnel compile multiple reports for the various consumers they service, taking into consideration the mission, aircraft type, and any limitations of the aircrew. These reports shape how each affected unit plans their day.

PMI Westover ARB, MA Personnel React to Blizzard!
An extremely powerful “Nor’Easter” blew into Massachusetts on 8 February dumping historic amounts of snow for more than 24 hours. The total snowfall for Westover was 20 inches.
Governor Patrick activated the MA Army National Guard, and enacted the first statewide driving ban since the blizzard of 1978. Numerous watches and warnings were also issued. As a result, the Wing Commander, sent everyone (except essential personnel) home to ride out the storm. Among those remaining on base were our PMI employees.
PMI’s snow removal team got into place early, and began a monumental cleanup campaign as soon as the snow started falling. Their efforts were hampered by high winds, up to 40 mph, and blowing snow. Because the airfield was scheduled to reopen at 0700, Sunday, PMI’s cleanup efforts had to be continued almost uninterrupted from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.
As a result of their extraordinary efforts, PMI’s snow removal team received high marks from virtually all of the Wing Leaders. The Mission Support Group Commander, made a personal visit to the PMI Roads and Grounds Shop to thank the team for their efforts.
Well done PMI!
