Home » Gusty Landings in a Cessna 172 – Road to Private Episode 18

Total logged time before this flight: 28.2 Hours

It had been ten days since I had flown, and I wanted to get out and work on some landings. Checked the weather at the airport, and the winds were within my endorsed and comfortable maximums, and it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

It ended up being great gusty wind practice for me, and included a go around. And although my landings were slightly off centerline, I felt better about my flares and touchdowns than I have in a long time.
