NOTE






A maximum gust factor of 3 – 5 knots is nominated to cover the range of expected pilot experience and skill. Less experienced pilots should use the lower limits.









The skill of the pilot and the "quality" of the wind must be taken into account when assessing conditions for flight. For example, a new pilot with minimal exposure to thermic and/or gusty conditions may find flight conditions more appropriate in smooth conditions of light winds with light to nil gust to be within his and the aircraft’s abilities.
