St Helena Airport continues to work on wind shear problem

Posted 13 October 2016 · Add Comment

Technical work is continuing at St Helena Airport to mitigate the challenges of wind shear.

Planning is underway for an Avro RJ100 jet aircraft, operated by Tronos Jet Maintenance and flown by Atlantic Star Airlines, to fly to Wideawake Airport, Ascension Island, followed by a call at St Helena Airport on the same day.

Both are technical stops, and the crew will overnight on St Helena.

The flight will provide the airport with additional real time data and a pilot’s report - all part of building a more comprehensive picture of conditions at St Helena Airport. 

The RJ100 will be the largest aircraft to operate at St Helena Airport since ASSI certification on 10 May 2016.
