No DropDowns for this Checklist

Crosswind Takeoff

The following procedure is recommended for a crosswind takeoff

Advance throttle to Takeoff Power (61 in.Hg at 3000 RPM).

Hold the tail down until sufficient speed is attained to ensure positive rudder control. Speed should be slightly greater than for normal takeoff.

Apply sufficient aileron control to keep wings level or even to effect a slightly wing-low attitude into the wind.

Keep the aircraft firmly on the runway until speed is sufficient to make a smooth, clean break.

After becoming airborne, crab into the wind enough to counteract drift.
