Quick way to determine which runway to use?
Let's say I call up WX and have the wind direction and I know the runway headings from my airport charts and the pattern is empty. Here is what I do to determine the runway I am going to be using for landing.
Runways are 3 and 21 Wind is 281° which rounds to 28
I then do simple math taking the smaller number from the larger number and if its less then or qual to 9 thats the runway I am going to use. If not the other runway is it.
Example 28(wind)-21(runway)= 7 28(wind)- 3(runway)= 25
I'm going to use Runway 21..
