CloudAhoy in the Pilot Proficiency Center

Once again, CloudAhoy a proud sponsor and participant in the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center. 

The Pilot Proficiency Center is a gathering place for pilots of all levels to enhance their skills. Pilots will have the opportunity to fly challenging VFR and IFR scenarios in a Redbird simulator and then debrief the flight using CloudAhoy Pro. 

User Story: Debriefing a Crosswind Landing 

Grumman Tiger Pilot, Gary Bond shared a recent flight debrief with us where he executed a nice crosswind landing on RWY 18L at Huntsville International Airport (HSV). Throughout the approach winds were from the west at approximately 15 knots. Watching the flight through the 3D cockpit view, we can see how well he executed a crab angle into the wind to maintain his ground track with the runway centerline. His heading is 194, but the ground track is 185 and the green Flight Path Vector is aligned nicely on the runway. 

Reviewing Gary’s score, he did well to fly within or close to the goal ranges set by CloudAhoy. What is really impressive, and something many pilots struggle with even in light winds, is the precision with which he landed on the centerline in this crosswind. Even with the safety net of a 150 ft wide runway, CloudAhoy data shows that he landed only ONE foot off center – wow!!

Check out more details and watch a fun video of this landing in the CloudAhoy blog.

Flight Chops shares his #CloudAhoyScore

In his latest video, Flight Chops hand flies an ILS in strong winds. He debriefs the instrument approach with CloudAhoy Pro and receives a score of 91. Watch it here! 

Interested to see how you compare to Flight Chops and other pilots?

Take a screenshot of your debrief with a scored maneuver or approach, add the hashtag #CloudAhoyScore, and share it on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. The pilot community can cheer on and support each other to stay active while challenging ourselves to have fun, be safe, and stay proficient.
