1 A discussion of high wind landings and the effects of the wind velocity gradient. John J. Scott

2 At ASG it is only a question of when, not if, you will have to make a landing in high winds. You need to remember how to calculate your high wind approach speed. V approach = 1.5 (V stall ) + ½ (Wind) + (Gust Factor)

3 Example: Vstall = 40 Kts Winds are 20G25 (20 gusting to 25) Gust Factor = = 5 Kts Vappr = 1.5(Vstall) + ½(Wind) + (Gust Factor) Vappr = 1.5(40) + ½(20) + (5) Vappr = 75 Kts In this example your ground speed on downwind will be over 100 Kts. Seeing the ground flashing by can result in several instinctive mistakes.

4 It is important that you keep a command of the situation to avoid making these 2 instinctive mistakes: Raising your nose to reduce airspeed Turning a normal base leg, or even worse, extending the downwind

5 Raising your nose to reduce airspeed You should already know that your approach air speed was calculated correctly and this high ground speed is the correct sight picture. Turning a normal base leg / Extending Downwind On final, your glide slope relative to the ground will be steeper than normal. This is because your headwinds are greater than your additional airspeed. The length of your final approach leg will be shorter than normal so you should turn base sooner than normal.

6 High Wind Base Leg Reduce by ¼ to 1/3 IP

7 The following example assumes a wind speed of 15 Kts, the lowest wind speed to achieve a fully extended windsock. The example shows that a glider can cross the R21 boundary at ~ 500, deploy full spoilers, and not overshoot the end of the runway.

8 JAR-22 Design Requirements Gliders shall have a glide slope no flatter than 7:1 with spoilers fully extended and flown at an airspeed equal to 1.3 Vso (stall speed in landing configuration). Assumptions Vso is assumed to be 40 (with spoilers extended). Vapproach is assumed to be 1.3 Vso = 1.3 (40) = 52 Kts. (This is the JAR-22 no wind approach speed) Vapproach is assumed to be 60 Kts with this wind speed. Vertical descent speed is 52 / 7 = 7.4 kts Resultant ground speed is = 45 kts Resultant glide slope relative to ground is 45 / 7.4 = 6.1:1

9 Under these conditions it is physically impossible to overshoot the runway Kts 7.4 Kts Kt Headwind ~ 400 ~ 3,000 R21 is 3,400 long R21 Fence

10 Is this calculation conservative? The following suggest that it is: Newer gliders are 5:1 not 7:1. The use of a slip. A wind velocity greater than 15 Kts (not detectable by the wind sock). The presence of a wind shear gradient. Additional altitude loss on final approach An altitude of 500 AGL amounts to 4,800 MSL, the lowest altitude that needs to be achieved during the base leg of the landing to R21.

11 If you want data on the wind velocity gradient close to the ground; who do you talk to? FAA? USAF? NWS? NO!!!!!

12 Talk to the Windmill people!! Windmill efficiency is a function of height. Blade design is an issue due to differential loading top versus bottom. Stress Vibration Aerodynamic efficiency

13 The wind gradient profile is determined by three inputs; Ref. Point Height Ref. Point Wind Velocity Wind velocity Surface Roughness Height Surface Roughness

14 Surface Roughness Definitions Surface Roughness Class Water Concrete Runway; Sheep Grazed Land Open agricultral area w/o fences and hedgerows. (Air Sailing) Sheltering Hedgerows Trees, Buildings Cities Ratio V500' V015' ~ 70% increase in velocity at 500 based on a 20 Kt wind at the Windsock

15 V500 = 33.3 Kts This is the wind shear gradient for Air Sailing. 20 Kts at the wind sock means 33 Kts at 500 feet. The change in the gradient is greatest closest to the ground. V015 = 20.0 Kts

16 What is the effect of Wind Shear? 20 Kts of wind AS = 70 GS = 50 No wind?? Q: If you do nothing; What will the glider do? A: It will lower its nose to maintain airspeed.

17 Descending thru wind shear means: Progressively lowering your nose to maintain airspeed. And Progressively closing spoilers to maintain glideslope.

18 The wind velocity gradient is greatest close to the ground. A steeply banked turn at low altitude can result in a unexpected and dangerous overbanking roll.

19 Sooner or later you will need to perform a high wind landing. Done properly they provide a real sense of accomplishment. Remember to keep your head in the game and a command of the situation. Understand what is happening to you and why.
