Hot Desert Climate (Köppen climate classification BWh) - Hot desert climates are typically found in the subtropics where there is unbroken sunshine for the whole year due to the stable descending air and high pressure, little or no precipitation. Maximum temperatures of 40°C to 45°C are not uncommon, particularly during the warmer months of the year.
Early morning fog may be a hazard.
Flight Safety Considerations
- Parallel Runway Operation, need to be carefully managed in such a manner as to minimise the risk of runway incursion or wrong runway use due. Closely-spaced parallel runways may affect the pilots' situational awareness or lead to their distraction or confusion.
- Fog, is effectively surface cloud and has a significant impact on the conduct of flying operations particularly landing and take-off.
