MESOTECH MEANS SUPPORT
When something isn’t working right your whole airport can grind to a halt, causing delays and frustration. It’s important for you to be up and running again as quickly and conveniently as possible. That’s why customer support is the most important part of our product. Mesotech never charges for a phone call or an email.
Mesotech supports local and independent third-party maintainers for AWOS systems and offers free training with installation. Weather patterns never stop, so neither should your support.
Our helpdesk supports over 200 military locations worldwide and stands by ready to serve you and your airport no matter what the weather brings.
SUPPORT FOR LEGACY EQUIPMENT
Just like the weather, technology is always changing. Mesotech is built to last and built to integrate. Airport Weather Advisor® systems are installed on every continent including Antarctica. Our products are built tough to stand the test of time and last decades. However, we never leave a customer behind.
You shouldn’t have to replace a working system just because it is old, that’s a needless expense on your budget. Mesotech AWOS is built to efficiently adapt existing infrastructure at your airfield and seamlessly mix the old with the new to keep you flying safely. We always maintain an upgrade path for our legacy equipment and provide support when it is time to upgrade.
