Everytime I am on a flt to EWR, the arrival is always very bumpy. Especially
landing to the south on 22L/R. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes yesterday but it was because of a rather large cold front that was messing up the east coast. -Matt in KITH

It just depends, it's not any bumpier than any other airport in my experience. Last week when I flew into EWR from RDU it was so smooth I thought I was back in the simulator, winds completely calm, visual approach to 22L and a total greaser. If the wind is blowing at 15-20 knots like it is most of the time during winter, then yes, it will be bumpy.

In my experience, EWR arrivals are rougher than most other airports. EWR does tend to have strong and gusty winds. I have flown AA to/from EWR close to 100 times and have had many rough approaches. EWR is the only airport I have flown into where there have been other passengers getting airsick while landing (more than one flight with this).

Our plane was tossed around while coming into EWR, much bumpier than most other airports.

I was hand flying an ILS to 22R with a sidestep to 22L last week with surface winds reported as calm. Not a cloud in the sky. This was about the 3rd or 4th day in a row of light winds and clear blue skies (and warmer than usual temps). The 737 landing ahead of us reported a gain of 20kts at 500' on approach. I was deliberately staying a half dot high on the glideslope to not hit his wake. Even still, it was bumpy all the way out from about 20 miles NW of EWR, all the way to touchdown (surface winds calm???). I know that a lot of it has to do with the topography with heat radiation thermals, especially as the day goes on. I think you'll find that earlier in the day, approaches are smoother, and the mid to late afternoon is the worst for turbulence. Also, at EWR, you have many industrial plants that give off steam/waste heat/other pollutants that indirectly create turbulence.


There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't.

Now where you said it, all three times I landed in EWR it was a bumpy ride while the approaches in JFK were mostly smoother. I didn´t make my mind on this before but your explinations seem to be quite reasonable.


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong
