MAOR,

The worst form (as far as potential threats to safety) of turbulence to encounter is windshear. Please see our responses there. You posted the topic

The second form of turbulence that can have implications is Wake turbulence. Wake turbulence off an aircraft is like the wake from a boat--from an aircraft though, it's generated by wingtip votices. The bigger the aircraft, the bigger the wake it will generate. Jumbos and 757s generate the most formidable wakes. Wakes will usually drift below the level of the aircraft's flight path and drift with the wind. Thus, if you can feasibly lift off at an earlier point and outclimb the path of the departing traffic, you should be okay. That's easier said than done, and in most cases, wake is just a temorary rock of the boat through which easy recovery can be made. Tower will give an advisory, "Midex 901 cleared for take off, fly runway heading, caution wake turbulence, departing DC-10"

On landing in wake, if you are much smaller, try to touch down at a point aft of the preceding plane's touchdown point as the wake turbulence will end where the generating aircraft's flight path ends or touch down point occurs.

hey DC-9CAPT thanks for the respond...

let me go practical for a moment...

you take off and the tower has warned you about a wake turb(turbulence) ...
now u've already rotated... what do you do know in order to both get a steady rate of climb and not divert from course ??

in other words, how do you keep the airplane stable from the rotation moment untill the tower or somene else tells you you passed the wake turb...

What I meant to say was touch down at a point beyond the traffic that arrived prior to you. So if you are in a BE-1900 trailing a heavy, and the heavy lands on the 9 board (if they have boards), aim for a touch down at 8.5 or beyond. Traffic permitting of course.
