Hold up, everyone. Those aren't hold short lines. That's a new type of line I've been seeing at certain airports but cannot discern what they even mean. As far as I know it is not in the AIM -- we've checked.
Controllers can't use controller-applied visual separation in lieu of wake turbulence rules. If a pilot agrees to maintain visual separation or follow another aircraft, then he assumes the responsibility for wake turbulence separation.
Landing behind an equally-sized or heavier aircraft, it is best to descend above the preceding aircraft's flight path. Departing behind an equally-sized or heavier aircraft, it is best to try and climb above the preceding aircraft's flight path, which isn't always possible, hence using time or relying on a particularly strong crosswind to take care of the wake turbulence is a pilot's best bet.
More and more research is being done on the topic of wake turbulence separation. The FAA has developed something called RECAT, which is a program designed to recategorize the wake turbulence separation standards between aircraft that will be rolling out in the next few years.
Effective on Monday, 9/15/2014, the LAF feed receiver will cease to monitor Grissom Approach frequencies in order to promote more effective listening to only the LAF Airport. Better monitoring of Grissom Approach is now available on a separate feed located here: http://www.liveatc.net/search/?icao=kgus. If you have any questions, please ask here!
I'm trying to figure out where this guy actually landed. There aren't many taxiways that are lined up with 28. Then the tower directs him onto B to cross 28L and R then left on Charlie. That indicates he landed south of 28L. Did he land on W?
Newbe here, but listening to the recording it sounded like that aircraft maybe had a instructor on board due to the different voices and all. What is the procedure for a pilot deviation for student with an instructor on board?
