That's true, but as well as gusts there are lulls, and the lulls are just as big and just as regular as the gusts (must be otherwise the wind would get ever stronger).. When you are flying into the...

Prof,
Of course there are also the issues of turbulence, gusts, wind sheer etc. that can make flying in the wind tricky. These effects plus the obvious problem of getting blown backward relative to...

Earth,

Again, and hopefully to ber very clear on the point; for a plane in flight there is no "component of airspeed attributable to the wind", none, zero! Airspeed is a result of the plane's...

Earth,

No, if a plane is flying at 60mph IAS then none of that is due to 'wind' it is ALL due to the thrust of the engine driving the plane through the air. when it turns 180deg nothing changes,...

Agree with all you have said, but what you have said isn't how a plane in flight behaves. If a car drives at 25mph into a 10mph wind then, yes, it will 'feel' a 35mph 'apparent wind' and if it drives...

Prof,

There is a very important and fundamental difference between boats and planes. Boats (and cars, and people) are connected to the ground (or to water). The ground (or water) therefore has a...

Earth,
The plane might stall when it turns because turning increases g loading, but it would meke no difference which way the plane turned relative to wind measured on the ground. All that matters...

Earth,
No, on this one we disagree, what you describe is the classic downwind turn misapprehension.
The plane's momentum is relative only to the air it flies in. It has no 'inertial connection' to...

Flitetest join the downwind turn debate!

Here's what Josh and Josh have to say about flying into wind vs. flying away from wind: http://www.youtube.com/user/flitetest#p/u/4/328de9cscNw

In a nutshell the Joshes are claiming that because...
