        There is a great video on YouTube of the FA18’s departing Wings Over Illawarra a few years ago when the crosswind was around 30kts for two days. These highly skilled military fast jet pilots in machines with plenty of thrust and flight control computers struggled to deal with it. There were reports of Cessna’s and Piper’s operating with crosswinds in excess of 25kts! Whilst the crosswind figure in the flight manual is a ‘demonstrated’ crosswind not a hard limit per se, you want to think VERY carefully before you attempt operations in that regime as you are now a test pilot!
