WIND LIMITS and BRAKING ACTION.
How to use this diagram; example RWY 19 (heading 190°), wind 160°/30KT.|
Enter the vertical scale at 30, then follow the circle to 30°. Follow the line vertical down and find the crosswind component of 15KT and the minimum recommended braking coefficient of 25.
Wind limit diagramValid for RWY width 40M or more.
Recommended Crosswind limits with snow or ice on runways.Pilots -in-command are strongly advised to limit the crosswind component accepted for takeoff and landing as indicated in the diagram. Normally ask for and use braking action in terms of friction coefficient, if obtainable. Use linear interpolation between above figures.
Rules regarding braking action.When different braking actions are reported along a runway, the reported values should be applied as follows:
Caution; Aquaplaning can be expected at speeds exceeding 110KT and at touchdown to 95KT.
