Overview

This report summarizes the results of an extensive wake turbulence data collection program at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Most of the landings at SFO are conducted on closely spaced parallel runways that are spaced 750 feet between centerlines (runways 28R and 28L). The purpose of the measurement program was to provide data to support the safety assessment of future enhancements to the Simultaneous Offset Instrument Approach procedure that permits continued use of both runways in deteriorating weather. The data collection was focused on wake behavior in the critical near-ground region where a wake encounter might be most hazardous. Limited measurements were also made at a glide slope altitude of about 530 feet to confirm prior results.
