I recently did a short (ish) lesson with my step grandfather (who was a pilot) in IF, (I was flying a SR22) and when doing patterns I told him we would land in a 6kt tailwind. He said: “oh! We don’t want that!”
So my question is, does 6kts really affect a smaller plane’s performance?
I know you should never land with a tailwind, but in a larger plane does 6kts really matter? Is there a speed where it begins to matter?
(I’m not talking about closed (red) runways)
