It was too windy today for a solo, so we practiced some crosswind takeoffs and landings. The wind was coming at 7 knots gusting to 17.
The first couple were a little bouncy and misaligned, but they got much smoother. Tom told me to keep the nose wheel off the runway for the entire touch and go. That resulted in using a lot more elevator back pressure than I normally use, which turns out is the right amount of back pressure to use.
Hopefully the weather cooperates on Monday.. if it does, I’ll be soloing at 8am!
