The best thing to do when approaching with strong winds

What’s best to do during the final landing approach in a very strong crosswind?
Example, a beam wind of 10kts

Use the rudder to help keep your aircraft on the center line.

But, I think that as soon as the landing gear touches the ground, the aircraft will give a strong swing from side to side.

It might, so sometimes practice will help.


Down below is a link to the user guide for crosswind/tailwind landings, if you want, take a look and use what you learned to see if it helps!

Yes, thanks. I will check. I thought about the possibility of having a very strong ground touch. and the aircraft rocking from side to side and even going off the runway.

Winds of 10kts do not influence an aborted landing. Depending on where the wind is coming from, the maximum amount of your aircraft will correct the wind, turning to the side where the wind is coming from. Unlike a 40kts wind, it does influence a lot in a landing and a dash, and can even cause instability. Landings under these conditions are avoided. Aircraft wait for time to improve, if it doesn’t change the aircraft switches the objective!
And winds of 10kts are already capable of leaving your aircraftAnd winds of 10kts are already capable of leaving your aircraft beside. Then use Rudder to correct when you’re almost touching the track. 😉😉
