SiriusXM Canada announced today that the SiriusXM Aviation Pilot Express weather plan has been enhanced with key weather features for Canadian pilots. SiriusXM Aviation provides satellite-delivered weather and related information, and for as little as $29.99 per month, pilots can now receive weather radar, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs and SIGMETs plus other key features like lightning, winds aloft, and icing.
“We are very pleased to make these enhancements to the Pilot Express weather package. Whether pilots fly low and slow or high and fast, we want pilots to have the weather and related information they need at a back country airstrip, at 500’ or at their destination 500 miles ahead” said Paul Cunningham, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing at SiriusXM Canada. “With these enhancements, pilots across Canada will be able to monitor their destination airport and know when to divert or when to climb to get optimized winds resulting in fuel savings, plus avoid challenging weather along their route of flight.”
The Pilot Express weather plan is available with select Garmin avionics and the applicable SiriusXM weather receiver. Pilots can also fly with the Garmin Pilot app (AndroidTM and iPadR) with the portable Garmin GDL 51 or 52 receiver. SiriusXM Aviation weather and audio services are available in Canada, the coastal waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the 48 contiguous United States.
SiriusXM Aviation satellite-delivered weather services provides key benefits so pilots can have confidence about what’s ahead to make the best decisions inflight. Key benefits include:
- No line-of-sight restrictions
- No altitude limitations
- Continuous coverage coast-to-coast
Pilots that want to try the enhanced Pilot Express weather can now receive a free three-month subscription to the service plus SiriusXM’s audio entertainment. Pilots that subscribe to the Pilot Express weather plan are eligible for a free one-year membership to the Canadian Owners and Pilot Association.
