Olá a todos!
Here’s a #throwback to a #deadheadflight I experienced en route to Fiumicino, earlier this month. What a magnific view over the alps, don’t you think? 🏔
Even if a flight may seem to be running smoothly, something may occur very unexpectadly: #turbulence. It simply is a part of flying.✈️
Just like the sea gets stormy, there are “obstacles” in the sky which are not clearly visible to the naked eye.
There are various aspects of the weather which cause different intensities of turbulence: light, moderate and severe turbulence. The most common form is CAT, Clear Air Turbulence, and it can’t be detected on the radar. Jet streams (known as narrow and fast moving currents of air), the terrain (like mountains) and thunderstorms (cumulonimbus clouds) result in this kind of turbulence. It is due to the wind shear, namely the sudden change of wind velocity and/or direction.💨
Primarily, turbulence can dangerously affect the safety of the passengers and of the crew in case the seat belt is not fastened or any other items in the cabin such as luggage and galley compartments are not properly stowed.
This is why “For safety reasons, you are required to keep your seatbelts fastened, whenever you’re seated.”💺
Can you tell me what the turbulence of an aircraft’s wake vortex is?
I wish you a relaxing and sunny weekend!🌞
