with The Jacobson Flare
When introducing the topic of crosswind landings, some flight instructors seem to delight in terrifying their students. This is unnecessary and so damaging to their confidence levels.
Sometimes the wind does blows directly down the runway… but mostly, it doesn’t.
Landings frequently involve a crosswind component. Once understood, it is just another landing; sometimes a challenge but certainly not to be feared, as is often sadly the case.
The Jacobson Flare App for iPad explores the options when landing with a crosswind and explains clearly how to master this normal manoeuvre.
