Pete Michaels Traffic


Pete Michaels is Knoxville’s only traffic reporting pilot, flying his own 200 mile per hour turbo aircraft “AirWatch.” He flies higher and faster…using his own aircraft to cover traffic, road and construction problems. Along with ground spotters and cellular communications, he gathers information on all main and secondary rush hour routes. He has direct radio communications with all East Tennessee law enforcement agencies under the police call signs “Air Watch” and “SkyWatch.”


Knoxville SkyWatch Traffic Operations
As well as providing Knoxville’s ONLY Airborne Reports, Pete Michaels’ Traffic Operation Centers are staffed by experienced operators who understand Knoxville Traffic and who can interpret the minute to minute changes in traffic flow. They use the most advanced technology available for monitoring emergency communications and multiple camera networks.
