You are correct! to a degree. Flying the 150 in xWinds and getting to the point where I don't even think about doing the Xwind correction, and its just an natural thing, is my goal. It will require more work yes, But I kinda think about it like, the harder I work the more i learn and the 150s gear handles cross loading (when i mess up and I am sure I will mess up) much much better then say the Piper Arrow, with RG, i was also offered a buy in. My goal is to get a ton of hours and maybe even my Inst-Cert then look at a larger plane like the Arrow, 182 or even a BO.
Its also nice not having to pay the stupid high rental prices around here. there are 2 172's for rent around $165 hour.
EDIT: the link is broke... is it that video where the guy lands, rolls off runway across grass and into a hangar? if so did you see where he firewalled the throttle? and pulled the yoke all the way back? and had ZERO xWind Correction?
Hope he is alright....and had renters insurance....
