Great attitude, guys, to even mention the cleaner in the airport operation diagram. They are such important workers, presenting the project to an enjoyable standard, often not acknowledged and only noticed, when they fail. Wish more companies would follow your thinking process.
Is construction of a massive structure shaped like an aero foil extending out over the sea ahead of the threshold of the problem runway being considered? I imagine that the problem is that the wind driven airflow becomes turbulent when it tumbles down (like a waterfall) over the thousand foot high cliff close to the thresh hold. Such a structure could, in my opinion, extend the inevitable downdraft further away from the cliff and threshold and reduce vortices.
May I point you out that the editor of the British Aviation magazine
wrote me that it yesterday a contribu-tion on shearwinds on St. Helena.
“PUBLISHED” was missing in my contribu-tion. Sorry.
Cleaner could be the only airport worker actually NEEDED ……..
Is it feasable and economic to adapt parachutes on airline planes to operate on the island?
