Crosswind limits

I just recently took off from BWI with a 16 kts crosswind with a A319, it almost blew my plane off the runway. I was wondering what are the crosswind limits for specific aircrafts?

They can be anywhere from 15 (for wet runways - not applicable to IF) to 50. A quick Google search should provide the crosswind limit for your specific aircraft. More information can be found in the article I have linked below.


Hi there,

The crosswind limit for the A319 should be at around 35KTS I believe. And for other aircrafts I believe there are online resources that can help with that information. I personally use Brainscapes to get info like that.

Hope that helps!๐Ÿ˜Š

For the A319 itโ€™s about 30kts! Gentle rudder inputs really do help. And tilting the aileron to the wind.

Do they apply to both takeoff and landing?

Thanks alot!

This is the takeoff tutorial just give me a sec to find the landing: - Takeoff - Landing

@AdamCallow what did you test the A350 at, 75kts crosswind?

Must have been an interesting approach ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Something stupid like that yeah. That was with 2 engines. Perfect landing, canโ€™t share the video with you guys, but the beta guys can agree, it was perfect.

I think I made it down with 85ks with Number 2 shut down.
