Title:Wake Turbulence Encounters Between Heavy Category Aircraft On Departure
Description:Analysis of MOR data has identified that a disproportionate number of wake turbulence encounters relate to departures of heavy aircraft following heavy aircraft. The CAA has decided to adopt the ICAO criteria for Heavy/Heavy aircraft departure wake turbulence separation as the default UK criteria with effect from 20 February 2014. However, the UK criteria will be accompanied by an allowance for an alternative means of compliance subject to acceptable supporting safety assurance and associated enhanced local safety monitoring processes.
