  • Taking off from Maui in windy conditions!

    I noticed when we landed two weeks ago, conditions were pretty windy. Pilot really hit the breaks in order to avoid the plane being bounced around. I'm wondering if conditions will be that windy for takeoff? I've taken off at Newark during windy conditions and I didn't like it. Iris

    I don't understand your saying the pilot hit the brakes to avoid the plane being bounced around. Heavy braking after landing is done to exit the runway earlier. The amount of braking may depend on where the airline's terminal is. A pilot may use heavy braking to be slow enough to turn off onto an exit near the touchdown point if the terminal is near the first part of the runway, whereas if the terminal is near the far end of the runway, little or no braking may be used.

    You seem to be implying the windy conditions mean danger so the pilot braked hard to get out of danger. Again, that makes no sense.
