It's also most likely that pilots in the tropics very rarily experience crosswind landings, since there is no wind at all, and thus lack training


What a load of shyte! There are some places in 'the tropics' where the wind never basically stops blowing - any oceanic island with a runway running with the lay of the land can give you 20 kts crosswind on a good day!
