Flying In Crosswinds

It's important that as a student you catch on to crosswind taxi, takeoff, and landing procedures early off in your flying career. Failure to do so is simply detrimental to your flight training.

Here's a tip I encourage all my students to work at.

Don't Shy Away From Crosswinds

Yes, the wind may be favoring runway 36 but why not go to another airport that has a runway 27 and really get out there and practice these crosswind procedures.

You can't choose where the wind is coming from on the days you fly. Before you solo you should have a through understanding of crosswind procedures. Think of something simply like, how do you taxi in a crosswind? Many students fail to answer this question let alone execute it properly.

Learn Your Takeoff procedure and most importantly you crosswind landing procedure.

There are two crosswind landing methods, the sideslip and the crab. Figure out which one works best for you and understand/be able to perform both of them.

Then before you know it you'll have perfect crosswind landings in your bag of tricks.

  1. First good job on the blog! I always want to go with the alternative remedies. I am fed up with hearing about latest "Wonder Drug", solely to find out a year or two later that it causes some horrible disease. I love the television commercials for pharmaceuticals, I assume they should list any known facet-effects (that's good) however it usually makes the aspect-results of the cure sound worse then the disease.

  2. Excellent weblog, many thanks a lot for your awesome posts!

  3. Hello fantastic website! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
    I have virtually no knowledge of computer
    programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques
    for new blog owners please share. I know this is
    off topic however I just had to ask. Thanks a lot!
