Mastering Crosswind Landings in a Cessna 172 - Part 2

This video is part two of a series on mastering crosswind landings. In part one we flew in some very heavy winds but here in part two, we cover a more common scenario: the light, steady crosswind. Let's face it the wind is very rarely right down the runway, so when you're learning to fly it's important to have precision lateral control and deal with the (often light) crosswinds that can cause bad alignment and drift. Bad alignment is usually what causes an uncomfortable touchdown and in this video, I will teach you how to deal with it. We also cover an exercise you can do with your instructor (or with your students) to help them get this concept even when there are no winds at all. Please enjoy and share! I've got videos and podcasts coming pretty much week over week.
