NOTE: Some aircraft are equipped with Predictive Wind Shear (PWS) alert systems that warn the flight crew of a potential wind shear up to 3 miles ahead and 25 degrees either side of the aircraft heading at or below 1200’ AGL. Pilot reports may include warnings received from PWS systems.
NOTE: The LLWAS is designed to detect low level wind shear conditions around the periphery of an airport. It does not detect wind shear beyond that limitation.
NOTE: The requirements for issuance of wind information remain valid as appropriate under this paragraph, para 3-9-1, Departure Information and para 3-10-1, Landing Information.
NOTE: LLWAS NE++ when associated with TDWR can detect wind shear/microbursts outside the network if the TDWR fails.
NOTE: The geographic situation display (GSD) is a supervisory planning tool and is not intended to be a primary tool for microburst or wind shear.
NOTE: Aircraft that execute a wind shear escape maneuver will usually conduct a full power climb straight ahead and will not accept any control instructions until onboard systems advise the crew or the pilot in command (PIC) advises ATC that the escape maneuver is no longer required.
NOTE: When the escape procedure is complete, the flight crew must advise ATC they are returning to their previously assigned clearance or request further instructions.
