the GXM 42 portable SiriusXM Aviation weather receiver that when paired
with an aera 796 allows pilots to access new weather services made
available by SiriusXM‘s enhanced satellite network.
SiriusXM Aviation service gives pilots access to comprehensive weather
products as they become available, allowing operators to make educated
decisions in-flight as it relates to weather.
The GXM 42 is the
latest addition to a vast lineup of weather antenna receivers to offer
state-of-the-art SiriusXM Aviation information. SiriusXM is offering a
new lineup of packages and products within those packages. As an
example, the Pilot Express base package offers lightning, cloud-to-cloud
and cloud-to-ground activity, graphical winds aloft, temperatures
aloft, AIRMETS, and SIGMETS. Additionally, there are new lower price
activation fees as well as discounts for customers that prepay for an
entire year or more of service.
Similar to earlier generation
antennas, the GXM 42 offers important weather products such as radar,
aviation routine weather reports (METARs), terminal aerodrome forecasts
(TAFs), temporary flight restrictions (TFRs), lightning, turbulence
forecasts, and more.
