  4. IMC Question of the Month: Delve into the legality and safety considerations of landing on a runway with a significant crosswind component.
  5. Open Discussion: Share experiences and insights in both VMC & IMC conditions.

VMC Question of the Month

How do V X and V Y change as an aircraft climbs to higher altitudes? What is the altitude at which V X and V Y are the same?

IMC Question of the Month

You are flying an instrument approach to a runway where the crosswind component is 20 knots. This runway is preferred due to the instrument approach available and the current low ceiling conditions. The airplane you’re flying has a published demonstrated crosswind capability of 17 knots. Is it legal to use this runway, or are you operating outside the limitations for the aircraft?
