3. Wind Calculator

Wind information is crucial for the pilot's takeoff and landing performance planning.

The RightBase wind calculator takes the guesswork out of estimating crosswind and headwind / tailwind components and allows you to:
  • Determine whether current wind is within aircraft and pilot limitations
  • Decide which runway is most favourable at multi-runway airports

Simply enter:
  • Wdir: wind direction
  • Wv: wind speed
  • RWY: runway number, (e.g. 26 for runway 26)

Hit 'Calc!', and the wind components are calculated in a snap.

Wind calculations are quick and easy
