Pilots are required to consider gusts when determining if forecast or current wind conditions comply with any and all CAPR 70-1 wind limitations.  CAPR 70-1 makes this explicit in the case of maximum surface winds by including the phrase “including gusts.”  The text located on the www.gocivilairpatrol.com website on the "Aircraft Operations" page titled "Crosswinds and Gusts" provides additional information.  The information clarifies that gust values shall be used when evaluating all CAPR 70-1 wind limits, to include calculation of crosswind component.
