One of the main reasons that airports, helipads and airstrips have variegated windsocks is because the stripes tell a story. They tell you wind speed. Approximately how many knots or mph the wind is blowing.
The windsock will inflate partially or fully depending on the wind speed and wind strength. Knowing wind speeds and direction are key to landing your aircraft safety.
The windsock will fully inflate at 15 knots or 17 mph winds. Check out the chart below below for a true guidance on how the windsock inflates based on what speed.
