How to Read a Wind Cone

How to Read a Wind Cone

The wind cone, also called the 'windsock' is a colorful tool at each airport that offers relevant information to pilots, allowing them to quickly and easily determine the approximate wind speed and direction before taking off or landing.

Wind Cone Technology

Pilots have much more precise and technologically advanced ways of discovering wind speed and direction than looking at the windsock. But the windsock is still invaluable for the speed and accuracy of the information it can convey.

Solar Shines bright in Caribbean Airports

Solar Shines bright in Caribbean Airports

For Immediate Release

Victoria BC, Canada. 20 July, 2016 --/

Dozens of islands within the Caribbean have led the transition to Solar Airfield Lighting over the past decade.  Currently there are solar LED airfield lighting systems in The Bahamas, Dominica, Barbados and Antigua, to name a few. This transition has benefited the airports in areas of operations, safety and finance.

Aviation is a vital link, and lighting is critical

Caribbean islands face a unique challenge: they are very dependent on aviation, and electricity can be very expensive.  The Bahamas, for example, is composed of hundreds of islands spread over a wide area.  These ‘Family Islands’, as they are known, have dozens of airports to support the movements of goods and people around the country.  Almost all aviation in the Bahamas is during the day, as airports historically had no lighting.  This posed a major problem in the event of medical emergencies that necessitated evacuation to larger centers, as the MEDEVAC aircraft would attempt landing in some very precarious situations.
