So, I'm sitting about 120 hours right now (in 172's only), just waiting for my Instrument checkride.. But I dont feel that my personal x-wind minimums are high enough? Anything around 8-10 kts x-wind, makes me extremely nervous, so my personal mins are 8 kts max x-wind.. Even if the wind is almost directly down the runway, I wont fly if its 15 kts, because even a 20 degree change in wind direction during my flight puts me out of my comfort zone.. And even when I do get a landing in close to my max minimums, its only 1 or 2, so I dont feel the skills/comfort progressing much.. Needless to say, this impacts the number of days I get to fly, especially in spring.. Am I just being a wuss? Also, how often have you had to divert (in a light ASEL) because of winds?
