No DropDowns for this Checklist

Crosswind Landings

The recommended procedure for crosswind landing is as follows

Maintain airspeeds slightly higher than for a normal approach.

Drop the wing into the wind slightly to counteract the drift, and keep the plane straight with the runway.

Just before touching down, level the wings.

Be sure to keep the stick back after touch down so that the tail wheel will remain locked.

Make a wheel landing if the crosswind is excessive, gusty, strong, or otherwise doubtful. Use approximately half flaps for any appreciable crosswind.

If crabbing is required during the approach, be sure to straighten out before landing. Never land in a crab as it is very stressful on the landing gear.
