A Good Learn

So today after flying 5 hours from Narsarsuaq to Reykjavik and landing in an utterly insane 35 knot head wind in my 172 I struggled to taxi to GA parking; turned left onto the taxiway… and was immediately blown over and issued a violation for acrobatics near an airfield.

Learn: should’ve flown inland to one of the 3 very near airfields to see if wind conditions were more favorable there.

So now I have to fix my Cessna and wait for my bruised ego to heal before continuing around the globe!

you should have landed at hong kong the winds there are way better

jokes aside @appeals might be able to get the violation removed but im not sure

When I read up on violations they basically said if it’s not a level 3 don’t worry about it and learn from it - so here I am.

The Cessna 172 cannot land or taxi in wind conditions above 30 knots haha!


Seeing as it wasn’t an issue with the app it won’t be removed, most likely.

Solo + 60kt head wind = levitation
