The frequent occurrence of strong tailwind and crosswind on the runway of Linzhi Airport is an important factor affecting the safety of flight take-off and landing. In order to correctly understand the impact of the ground wind field on flight operation and safety, automatic weather observing system (AWOS) data has been adopted in this paper, combined with the aircraft performance, airline dispatching and ATC control. The statistical characteristics of the flight operation security of wind field on runway surface of Linzhi Airport were analyzed. The results show that runway wind in afternoon period (14:00-19:59)-in most months-can meet the conditions of flight operation under the condition of reasonable the runway in use; in a few months, under some conditions , part of the time can meet flight operation requirement. The midnight period (20:00-23:59): the runway wind in 12 months of the year meets the requirement for flight operation.
