FlapsFULL
Maintain a wings-level crabbed approach on extended runway centerline.

CAUTION

Prior to touchdown, smoothly take out the crab with rudder to align the fuselage with the runway AND simultaneously use aileron to maintain wings-level.

WARNING

Drift should not be allowed to build due to aligning the fuselage with the runway too early.
An early kickout may lead to excessive drift, whereas a late kickout could result in swerve on touchdown due to nose wheel steering inputs.
Just prior to touchdown, center the rudders regardless of any crab or lateral drift because of the full time, low gain NWS that will activate upon weight-on-wheels.
Touchdown
AileronInto the wind as necessary to counter any wing-up tendency.
NWSAs required to track parallel to runway centerline.
