How can I battle 30 Knot plus wind in a Narrow body or Widebody aircraft?
Do you mean at high altitude or during take off and landing?
Wind, And both and cruise
You can change your flight plan or ascend/descend to avoid these winds. However, sometimes it may just be inevitable.
You can also turn on the seatbelt warning to alert your passengers. ;)
Probably decend before the windy areas
I always check ForeFlight, or just google for example trans Atlantic TAF and plan accordingly. And when you say battling winds when landing do you just mean crosswinds?? Because I wouldn’t fight headwind when landing
Yeah, How can I land in crosswinds?
or just power through them like the boss you are
I’d simply, feel the wind. Simply don’t move the nose too much and feel where are the winds heading. Use ILS Instrumentals and before touching down use the rudder to align with the runway. I find aligning with the runway the hardest in high winds. That’s only a quick point from me.
Check the tutorials
There’s not much you can do at high altitudes besides using favorable altitudes (windy.com).
Once you reach 20 feet AGL, you move the rudder to align the plane with the runway when you touchdown. There are some great videos on YouTube about this
Also there’s a lot of help in the #tutorials, you will find a lot of lectures there
Yeah what they said ^ just really kick that rudder !!!
Is it harder in different aircraft?
Yeah like don’t take an Xcub in I think more than 11kts Xwind… correct me if I’m wrong please 😋
But your also gonna deal with gusts and you never know when that may happen so be prepared for go arounds
I might practise on solo mode!
Landing an x cub in 50 knot winds is probably the most fun I’ve had in IF
But probably would be pretty tough in real life!
