Why Pilots Fly With SiriusXM

Here’s what current subscribers say about SiriusXM Aviation.

Ed Booth standing in front of helicopter

"I’ve used SiriusXM weather since 2005 and would not fly without it. I rely on the ability of SiriusXM to work on the ground. What good is a system that doesn’t start working until you are up in the weather you are trying to avoid?"

Ed Booth | 1968 Piper Arrow Pilot

Terry leaning on a small plane

"My confidence to fly solo across the country came from SiriusXM’s coverage, availability at any altitude or on the ground, plus the products and info that comes with the service."

Terry Carbonell | 2010 Air Race Classic Winner

Justin Smith in an Air Cam

"Onboard weather in an AirCam is critical. Having up-to-the-minute radar is the difference between getting soaked in an open cockpit airplane on your way back from a trip to the beach, and making it home to get the aircraft in the hangar."

Justin Smith | AirCam Engineer

SiriusXM Aviation data service elements are updated at multiple rates. Dynamic elements like radar and lightning are updated every 2.5 minutes (twice as fast as ADS-B), while other more stable data elements are updated every 60+ minutes. It's important to note that there are two variables at work with our broadcast weather service: data update rates and transmit intervals. While a product source may be updated every 30 minutes, the same data may be transmitted every 5 minutes to ensure your display is up to date. SiriusXM worked with its avionics partners to arrive at the optimal cadence of updated data and transmit intervals to ensure customers receive critical information in a timely manner.

I live/fly in Canada - where can I purchase SiriusXM Aviation weather service?

SiriusXM Aviation coverage area includes southern Canada. Canadian residents can subscribe to SiriusXM Aviation at siriusxm.ca/aviation.
