MaxSez: Although Wake Turbulence & Wing Vortex are not an IF phanomina now, it still should not be overlooked if yr a GA or Reginal Pilot.
Keep it Real. Your procedures should emulate what the future will hold should you choose flying as a pass time or career. Below find an extract from the Aviation Herald wlhich highlights a January 17 GA “Blow Over”,
(not a “Ground Loop” as some may think)
“Accident: American A319 at Phoenix on Jan 17th 2018, wake turbulence blew a Cessna 182 Over on departure!
An American Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N819AW performing flight AA-1709 from Phoenix,AZ to San Jose,CA (USA), departed Phoenix’s runway 07L and was climbing out of Phoenix.
A Cessna 182 departed runway 07L as the next aircraft. The FAA reported however: “AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 1709, A319 ON DEPARTURE CAUSED WAKE TURBULENCE AND BLEW OVER C172, PHOENIX AZ”. There were no injuries. Runway 07L was closed until the damaged 172 was removed causing a significant op interruption. END (Source: AvHerald)
With our crowded Controlled Aerodromes and Taxiway lineups at the threshold, those big fat ugly Heavies and Supers blowing smoke in yr face as you proceed from parking and launch are a clear and present danger to the GA and Reginal Crowd. Always look for an alternate if it looks like ATC has a prescribed active with a Blower Conga Line. Select your rwy of choice, the short unused one or a red one that your craft is capable of using is an excellant option… Refused Pilots Choice by ATC go for an “Intersection Departure” on the Active. (That choice is not in the ATC Friendly comm menu.) Just turn into an acceptable On Ramp, Stop at the Hold Short and request Take Off. A professional, well trained Controller will recognize your intent and send you down range. The line standers with any experience will recognize and Intersection go as a Conga Line Expediter.
Bottom line GA/Reginals; Beware big things that suck thru the air. They also blow big time. Remember the Alternative! “Intersection Departure” and Request Short RWays. Fly Real, soir with the IF Eagles, leave those Fledgling feathers in the class room called TS-1…
