The A321 has particularly poor take off performance, especially with obstacles. Departing JSI, if you are nearly full of passengers, you are unlikely to get back to the UK without a refuelling stop....

AA, you are quite correct that the rotor will not occur when the forecast wind is for 5 knots. However, I interpret these TAFs in a different way to you, and suspect that the forecaster is trying to...
