The AXIS Tool

Conditions at Skydive Arizona

consists of three sections:

1) Location Data:
The geografic coordinates and the field elevation of Sykdive Arizona together with apparent sunrise, solar noon, and apparent sunset.

2) On the Ground:
The conditions on the ground provide information on temperature, wind direction and wind speed. Two additional calculations provide information on the density altitude and (if temperatures are above 80°F) the heat index.
Wind gusts of less than 1.5mph above wind speed are displayed as 'insignificant'.
No live data! Data will only be collected at the maximum rate of 60 times per hour and only as long as this page is used by one or more visitors. A page refresh will not change this.
Do not use this page at all, if wind conditions are volatile.

3) Aloft:
The conditions aloft provide information on ceiling and clouds as well as a table with information on wind direction, wind speed, temperature and wind chill at differnt altitudes. The wind chill will only be calculated for temperatures below 50°F and wind speeds above 3 mph.

The two green rows show the closest available data for hop and pop (˜5,000ft) and high altitude exits (˜13,000ft).

Data Sources

If available for the area around Eloy Municipal airport, we use weather data provided by (for winds aloft; read their disclaimer) and (for conditions on the ground; read their disclaimer).

We also started experimenting with using weather data for conditions on the ground from AXIS' own PWS, as provided through
