Knowledge about wake turbulence behaviour has increased gradually, thanks to operational measurements, better understanding of physics and wake encounter flight testing. This has contributed to the introduction of new wake separation standards at major European airports, bringing operational benefits while preserving safety.
Pilots are direct witnesses of wake turbulence encounters. To learn more about their experience with this phenomenon, EUROCONTROL and the French Civil Aviation Technical Service (STAC), with the support of ECA, designed a short survey.
The objective of this survey is to collect your pilot expert judgements to rate wake encounters severity, aiming at more harmonized criteria for occurrence investigation and operational validation of new minima.
Take 10 minutes to fill in the survey between 15 Sept and 31 Oct 2015, using the following weblink:
