The main purpose of windsocks, installed on airports, airfields, heliports and helidecks, is to give the pilot an indication of the wind direction and strength. This helps to make a perfect landing. Windsock are installed next to the signal area but also close to both ends of the runway, clearly visible, both by pilots and ground personnel. It also helps to determine the take-off or Landing direction, because this must always be heading into the wind.
