Ryan Posted January 7, 2006 Report Share Posted January 7, 2006 Was driving home last night and going over confined area approaches in my head. Then a question popped into my head. Is it better to have the sun at your back if it means the wind is too, or do you sacrifice vision and fly the approach into wind if it means looking right into the sun all the way to the ground? Assume a spot with approaches that are one way or the other. No cross-wind landings. A light tail wind isn't a bad thing so long as you know it's there and don't get caught with your pant down. Put the sun in your face and dead snags, telephone poles and wires all vanish like a fart in the wind... as we've all seen. So which way would you do it and why? Got an answer in my head, just want to see what the voices of experience say. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
