MaxFaxs: Cross Wind Components & Hurricane Matthew

MaxSez: Gonna venture onto the Florida Palm Coast or along the US SouthEast Coast during Matthews IMC conditions choose your aircraft wisely.
IF GA craft are not a good choice. There stability for high wind operations are limited. The following general cross wind components should be considered. C-172: 15/17 Kts… C-208: 20/21Kts… SR-22: 22Kts. Unless your an experience and exceptionaly skill Aviator and fly the east coast during this emergency and you lose it, remember I told you so. The Spit or Decatholon fagetabout it.
For those who venture forth the certified Cross Wind Components for the Trash Haulers are available on line by model, Google is your friend. Keep in mind; there are old pilots & bold pilots but there are very few old bold pilots. (Various Sources)
(Tip: Cab or Slip, Windward Wing Down, Cross Control & lotsa Rudder.)


Love the old bold pilot saying, thank you sir. Maybe we’ll see you out there.


KPBI 340@24G42. Almost time to break out the spitfire.


@AR_AR… Let me know when you go. I’ll sit on the ramp and watch. Already pronged a Van repeatedly. Regards, Max
