    Goggles Survey on crosswind effects and accident experience.

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Elliot, I am undergraduate student and student pilot, right now I am doing an independent research project on reducing the crosswind impact on an LSA/Ultralight tailfin upon landing by using something called a plasma actuator, to try and reintroduce stability and thwart accidents in the future. I wanted to get a perspective of the community on their experiences with crosswind landings and how they have dealt with them as well as hearing about your thoughts on transitioning between GA aircraft to light sports. The survey should only take 3 minutes to complete, thank you all for your time.

    Elliot from Canada.

    I highly doubt you will get any noticable effect. It is very minimal in subsonic speeds. Even with dedicated geometries. AIAA-2014-2812

    Could you explain what you intend to do? I've been researching for faster aircraft. On academia it seems like there are less than 20 of us who actively research this topic in an open source manner.

    The impulse and power required would severely limit this.
