Taxiing around YYZ
is not much different than taxiing around NRT
, (I have done both). Snow or ice is very rarely left on taxiways or runways, and if it is, it is removed as quickly as possible.
Using charts for takeoff or landing on snow covered runways (rare but happens at YYZ
), is not much different than using the same charts for landing on a lot of standing water (rare but happens at NRT
When a winter storm arrives in YYZ
, (a few times a winter) things slow down, as usually only half the facilities are available. The other half is being cleaned so we WONT have to land or taxi on snow/ice covered surfaces.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!
