Introducing the CY Aviation "Skycam"

As of this month, CY Aviation offers the world an opportunity for a live look at Boone Municipal Airport !

We are now providing live images from the CY Aviation "Skycam" to the World Wide Web via our homepage (, and also via the popular weather website "Weather Underground" (

Skycam faces east, showing sky conditions, the windsock and any planes that might happen to be refueling in front of the FBO building. Images on refresh every 15 seconds.

The Weather Underground site offers several interesting features, such as an overview of images from each day of the month, and a video loop that shows time lapse images from a 24-hour period. These can be reached by navigating to, then clicking on "Webcams" in the upper portion of the screen. When the page named "Weather Webcams" appears, click on "Iowa," and then select "Boone."

Mobile apps: CY Aviation Skycam images are also available via the free app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad called "World Weather Forecast." This is a really nice app that you won't stop using. And don't forget that word "free!" If you use other Weather or Webcam apps and come across our images, let us know so we can spread the word!

Please share this with all your friends who are interested in seeing a real-time view of the Boone skies.
