    Avoid clearances which require:

    1. Super or heavy aircraft to use greater than normal taxiing power.
    2. Small aircraft or helicopters to taxi in close proximity to taxiing or hover-taxi helicopters.

    NOTE: Use caution when taxiing smaller aircraft/helicopters in the vicinity of larger aircraft/helicopters. Controllers may use the words rotor wash, jet blast, or prop wash when issuing cautionary advisories.

    • EXAMPLE
    • “Follow Boeing 757, Runway Three−Six Left, taxi via Alpha, Caution jet blast.”
    • or
    • When appropriate,
    • “Follow CH−53, Runway Two−One, taxi via Bravo, Caution rotor wash.”
