MaxFledglingFacts: The Basics; Impact of Wind Gusts During Approach & Landing. BONUS; All you need to know about AvWindVolocityReporting!

MaxSez: Here one to ponder. I’ve read multiple comments here relating to cross/quartering wind landing techniques. Gusting winds in the grove like the “Round Out” are rarely mentioned or considered in Flight Planning.
Read this and keep it in mind the METAR & ATIS (soon) is the Tip Off.
Always checked met conditions at your destination and en-route. Fly smart and safe. There are Old Pilots and Bold Pilots but… you finish the thought!

One thing to add here is that an aircraft’s maximum safe crosswind wind speed for operation can be found in their manual or in a simple google search.

A great reminder that during takeoffs and landings, you’re switching between controlling your aircraft on the ground and controlling your aircraft in the air. If there’s a bigger difference in speed between the two, you’ll have a harder time!
