Crosswind landing

Recommended Posts

Any pilot comes across a good crosswind landing (+10kts) once in a while. Is there a trick to it with the RFP? Everytime i touch down it's on track for about 2 seconds then it's start to slide over to the grass quite rapidly, it requires some breakneck and dangerous manouvering to keep it on the runway. Or is it my landing technique that's wrong? Touchdown and put the nose in the runway direction just as the nose gear touches down aswell.Maybe this is a merge problem but I kinda doubt that ;)

Tried and tested working, but it really disables the main gear stearing functions...

hi,within RFP B742 the Main Gear Steering is a fake .So you don't loose anything and you can continue to activate the switch on the overhead panelwith no result but at touchdown you'll be able to remain on the runway.That's better.Gianfranco
