Approvals & Placement of Windsocks

  • We remind that CASA does not approve windsocks and there is no approval process; there is a recommended standard for major airports only
  • Where prior inspection of a potential windsock site is involved arrangements can be made where feasible to discuss and jointly determine the suitability of the proposed site
  • The top of a hill or mound is not necessarily the best location for the placement of a windsock as wind conditions can vary considerably from conditions elsewhere
  • The top of a hangar is also not great for windsock placement due to turbulence factors
  • In regards to windsock placement please be mindful of trees, buildings and other facilities as well as line of sight so that employees or other involved public can see the windsock(s)
