Wind speeds of up to 220 km / h do not allow any mistakes when landing. A succession of storms with sudden changes in directions of the strong winds has produced some exciting times at different airports. Note the frequent flexing of the planes’ wings in response to the turbulence. Thats the reason a pilot need to have 1500 hours of experience in the air to control these severe turbulent conditions, crosswind difficulties and manage to land the plane safely without panicking and keeping in mind that the lives of passengers sitting behind you, may be screaming, crying, praying, losing body fluids…solely depend upon your decisions and your nerves. Thats why you as a pilot have to be very different, confident, physically tough, mentally agile, intelligent, must have iron nerves and emotionally balanced peronality, cool temprament, able to make quick decisions, multitask and perform under pressure.
