Today, I flew from LaGuardia over to Denver, Colorado!! Let me start off by saying this, I don’t know what infinite did to the winds/turbulence but they are waaaayyy too intense. Also, I don’t k is how accurate their information is or where they get it from but I had winds of 47kts smacking me on my approach into Denver. I couldn’t even keep the plane leveled. It had to be some of the nose intense and challenging flying that I’ve ever done in my life 😓 However, I greased the landing 😎👨🏾‍✈️ Other than that, this was a great flight. I hope you all had a great day and as always, I’ll see you in the skies 😊

I have noticed that many airports have “No Weather” recently. I also had to land with 26 kts direct crosswind today, even though the current official METAR said 5 kts…
