Summary0000282: VFR: runway selection should avoid tailwind, especially for light aircraft
DescriptionUsually I do my VFR flights with light aircraft. Several times I noticed that the runway selected by 124thATC had very much tailwind, which might be deadly with light aircraft. Actually of course that also applies to IFR flights. But maybe specially for VFR flights you could modify the runway selection in a way, that always the runway with minimum tailwind is assigned.

Another approach would be to base the runway selection in combination of aircraft weight and wind. The lighter the aircraft the more the tailwind component should be avoided.
