    A thought to consider, you do not need to shift from slipping left to right. Slip into the cross wind if there is one. Once you have chosen a direction for the slip.

    Let's say to the Right, so you simultaneously input Full right rudder to the stops, nose down and left aileron. Watch and maintain a safe airspeed!

    Keep the rudder pegged and use aileron to keep you on centreline, going a little too far left, less aileron, too far right, add some more.

    No need to switch back and forth. Do this correctly and with practice you relax the inputs simultaneously just above your flare height above the runway and land as normal.

    For a forward slip with a cross wind, put the nose 10-15 degrees off centreline into the wind before slipping. Transition to a side slip above flare height.

    It's a lot of fun!

    Do you have a video for slipping turns? Definitely a more advanced manoeuvre, but probably the most fun that can be had in the circuit!

    It's time to go back to school. I was one who dropped out due to a teacher who smoked during class and disrespectful language when talking about the FAA and its rules.
    You have a great attitude and love flying. The two best attributes in a teacher. Thanks

    I always have the issue of Oklahoma crosswinds. When I use the forward slip I always feel way off center line. Low hour student pilot (soloing) I always chose the go around.

    Wow! This style of video is awesome; short and to the point, excellent! I just wish your cute wife would say something, or for some extra drama, grab the yoke or kick the rudder to try and mess up your consistently perfect landings. Please Ashley, say something, tell us how your day went, or how you feel about flying in the plane. Why doesn't Jason let you have the controls in these videos?
