Environment. Wake Turbulence.

Wake Turbulence – Am I affected and what should I do?

What is Wake Turbulence? 

Wake Turbulence is caused by spiralling movements of air from each wingtip on an aircraft. These movements are known as wake vortices and they trail behind the aircraft and descend as they rotate. Normally vortices will dissipate in the air, however on very rare occasions the vortices can strike roofs causing tiles to become displaced in the immediate vicinity of the airport. 
Many of the new aircraft operating at London City Airport such as the Airbus A318 and Embraer 170/190 are equipped with winglets. These winglets improve aerodynamics and reduce the intensity of the wake vortices and reduce the likelihood of a wake turbulence impacts.  

What if I suspect my property has been damaged by wake turbulence?

Wake turbulence damage is usually verified by its pattern of damage. Only traditional slate or tiled roofs can be damaged and this damage is usually in the centre of the roof. The tiles are usually lifted and rotated unlike damage usually caused by bad weather or winds. 

If you suspect your property has been damaged by wake turbulence please call 0207 646 0200.
