New Symbol for Wind Turbines on FAA Charts
December 24, 2012 Leave a comment
The FAA will introduce new symbols for wind turbines on sectional and TAC charts beginning in March 2013. According to a presentation (PDF) at the Aeronautical Charting Forum in October, the new symbols comply with an ICAO standard. The depiction helps to distinguish wind turbines from other obstacles, and the symbols show both “farms” and individual turbines.
