KBHB to CYYR Screenshots and Notes
Lesson Learned: Check the weather between your departure and destination. I initially hit a 70kt direct crosswind in the first three segments of my route that turned into a 112kt crosswind. Eventually turned into more of a tailwind than crosswind (not really), but even at M0.55 I was off course by almost half a mile. Windy is my new friend… I could correct for level flight using my rudder but it would be nice if you could trim for rudder in IF. Maybe that’s a feature request already? So, just checking METARs at your departure and arrival airport can and will get you in trouble. I now have a better understanding of how to make the hop from Hawaii to California if the winds are favorable.
Arrived at Goose Bay for a 20kt crosswind landing. Nearly stalled the plane at 85kts while landing for a VERY short runout with Reverse Thrusters but we it! I’ll be off for my first over ocean flight to Greenland next.
90+ kt crosswind. Notice how AP tips the plane trying to keep it on course.
