Maximum wind speed for ground ops...?!

Post by Bump » Fri Feb 13, 2009 11:32 am

Folks, just a quick query - does anyone know at what windspeed ground operations cease at Dublin airport... so, not just flights grounded, but where it becomes unsafe to even taxi.

This is actually a work related question :roll: so I'd really appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

I don't know for sure, but I her much doubt that the airport imposes a limit. It's not ATC job to tell you how to operate your aircraft, if you want to try and land in 100kts of crosswind that's your business.

The Mob I work for on the 737 say 60kts is the limit for ground ops.
