Today, I had an AMAZING flight from Atlanta to Newark and back!! Today’s flight was nothing short of great 😁 We experienced some pretty strong winds during the cruise but it wasn’t as bad as I’ve experienced. Upon arrival in Newark, we had a crosswind of almost 30kts!! (I don’t remember the exact number 😬) However, i GREASED it 😎👨🏾✈️ It made me smile super hard after I landed. Usually, I do terrible in winds that high, but today, I remembered to use aileron deflection and it payed off well!! Takeoff, was very bumpy as expected as we had a 22kt crosswind on takeoff. It was hard to maintain centerline, but I did it. I’m very proud of myself for accomplishing the goal of landing and taking off in a very high wind condition!! I hope that you all had a great flying day and I’ll see you in the skies!! Catch me on the training server as “Captain Gordon”. Come fly with me!!
