Abstract

The fullest utilization under instrument flight rule (IFR) conditions of closely spaced parallel runways might very well depend ultimately on our ability to eliminate or at least to control the hazards of wake turbulence. The actual hazard is due to the possibility that the disturbance created over one runway will drift in an uncontrolled manner to a neighboring one.
