Beating Severe Weather with a Plan and New Ground Equipment

Weather can most certainly wreak havoc with flight patterns and easily cause delays and cancellations. If an airport ground crew has the proper training and access to the most reliable ground equipment many of those delays can be shortened or eliminated and many more flights will get into the air.

All winter long the entire northeast was battered with heavy snow, sleet and freezing temperatures that caused problems with regular flights. States in the north and across the northeast are accustomed to facing bouts of severe weather but many of the storms this past winter were so intense that delays couldn’t be avoided. At one point during the winter there was snow on the ground of nearly all fifty states leaving airports in areas of the country not accustomed to wintery conditions struggling to get passengers moving.

The spring followed the very harsh winter in many parts of the country with just as much precipitation. Violent storms have been ravaging areas throughout the south and the Midwest which has also posed a number of problems when it comes to getting planes into the air on schedule.

While it is true that some bouts of severe weather create a situation that is impossible to travel in the proper preparation can go a long way toward minimizing delays. Airports that are in areas that experience harsh weather conditions need to have access to reliable plows and ample supplies of deicer. Airports in any area of the country should invest in reliable ground equipment that is designed to work in all weather conditions.

As this past winter plainly showed extreme weather can strike just about anywhere at just about any time. It is much easier for airport ground crews to cope with severe weather and carry on with operations when they have access to equipment that is designed to handle all conditions.
