Very cool and amazing. crosswind landing. Cessna 172

November 21, 2008

Took my co-worker Alex for a flight.
All the credit for this video goes to him. He has an amazing sense of camera.
I always wanted to see how my gears close to the runway and he did it.
Could be used as a nice crab technique demonstration for crosswind landings.

    Thanks! but if you …
    Thanks! but if you are so well aware of crabbing during crosswinds you should also know that stall at touchdown is exactly what you want to achieve… you want to render those wings ineffective right as you are are touching town to ensure soft touchdown yet a firm grip with the runway. Besides thats just the stallhorn, which actually tells you that you are about to stall, which again is what you wanna achieve when landing a light single engine airplane. all the best

    Good Vid, wouldn’t …
    Good Vid, wouldn’t call it amazing as Crabbing is very common for Cross Wind Landings, but you did well. Camera control was just as good =P and thanks for the wheel down view for landing, something new!!!

    Shame about the stall as you touched down haha.

    Wow, awesome landing, my friend. I’ll be training to become a pilot soon and I was wondering if you could tell me a little about that plane. Cost? Maintinence? Anything like that. You can send me a pm if you’d like

    I totally concur- …
    I totally concur- there’s a huge difference between landing on FS vs landing with a 12-15 knot crosswind, with wind gusts on final. Nice landing- most POH procedures list it exactly the way it was done here.

    No matter what they …
    No matter what they are they’re right. Slipping to a landing can be effective but it takes much more practice and precision. This pilot nailed it here but its not recommended. The wing-low technique is best in a crosswind even if you land one wheel down. The hits the fan if you sideload a crosswind landing at some airports.

    Reading through the comments on this video, it’s apparent why I’m apprehensive about uploading my flying videos. I enjoyed watching, and I thought you did a fantastic job on the landing, but I swear everyone here is a critic. I guarantee over half of them are the flight simulator enthusiasts who have no idea what it’s like to be under the pressure. Flight simulators are good for instrument work, but seriously, they lack so much when it comes to things like this.

    dude, hes an actual pilot. second thing. yea u can crab a cessna, you have to just kick the rudder right before touchdown. think a bit. no hate here.

    also look at the “Thaz tru” comment and you will know what I mean when i say ‘if you have nothing to say, don’t say it”. That I call a ‘diminished intelligence’. hope you got me right now.

    Well i didn’t mean …
    Well i didn’t mean to offend you. if you read through comments you will see a lot of people commenting just to for sake of writing something. I’d think it is preassumed that somebody who is flying particular plane is aware about the plane design and limitations. and yes, you do use the crab technique untill about the touchdown when you transition to slip. Different pilots do the transtion at different stage. I do it on short final or over the threashold to make my passengers comfortable… peace

    u dont use the crab technique in these air crafts,the gears aint built for much side-load bearing, thus the wing-low technique n the gear on the side the wind is from shd touch first followed by the second main n last the nose…

    Probably moved him to 16L to avoid the wake turbulence from that larger aircraft

Got something to say?
