FLIGHT SAFETY HAZARDS BY SHEAR WINDS
The existing aircraft landing and takeoff procedures are examined in view of their wind shear compatibility. Meteorological wind shear is described from a flight technical point of view. Aircraft reactions to wind shear are outlined for several flight phases (landing-takeoff). The possibility of wind shear elimination is discussed and relevant effects to wind shear problems are reviewed.
