Hello Foljks
What are the MTO sport weather limitations x-wind and others ?
Thanks

MTO Sport Environmental Limitations from the POH

Maximum wind speed or gust intensity: 40kts

Maximum demonstrated crosswind component for take-off and landing 20kts

Maximum tailwind component for take-off and landing: 5kts

Maximum demonstrated operating altitude 10,000 ft.

Temperature- 15 to + 35 °C

Environmental Limitations MTO Sport model 2017:

Maximum wind speed or gust intensity 40 KIAS

Maximum demonstrated crosswind component for take-off and landing 22 KIAS

Maximum tailwind component for take-off and landing 5 KIAS

Maximum demonstrated operating altitude 12,000 ft

Temperature - 20 to + 40 °C

As the pilot in command it is your responsibility to stay within your skill limitations.

My advice is to increase you wind limits slowly recognizing that a little more wind can be a lot more challenge.

For a low time pilot in an MTO Sport I recommend a maximum cross wind component of five knots and maximum winds of twenty knots with a five knot gust spread.

As your experience as pilot in command increases SLOWLY increases your wind limits.

I have a gust limitation of 10kts in the gyroplane I fly.

The specific environment may have a lot to do with the challenges.

Ground obstructions may cause turbulence.

I teach clients to land near a wind sock so they have a better feel for the wind at that location on the runway.

Most wind socks in the USA are fully erect at 15kts.

If I see a windsock twitching through more than 20 degrees I have found the landing may be challenging.

Thanks for this informative list .

Make sure you land into the wind so don’t exceed the crosswind limitations. Once you get familiar with the gyro you shouldn’t need much runway. I landed once perpendicular to runway on uncontrolled airport due to excessive crosswinds. Stopped right on the centerline at taxiway interestion.
