Got to watch Laura do some NDB approach work with a slight xwind. It was interesting to try to follow the gauges to see what she was seeing when I had the whole picture. No, I don't fully understand this yet :-)
I did see, though, that she was wrestling a bit with the crosswind, which threw off her path, which threw off her directional setup; in both cases she wasn't lined up with the runway and had to scoot over. They definitely were functional approaches that would work in weather, but they weren't as bang-on as she would have liked.
I need to really know what's going on not only so that I can do this myself but so that I can correct her -- just enough, without simply directly back on track -- when she's getting behind. Hey, I'll take that goal!
