Surely the aircraft manufacturer gives guidance on whether or not gusts should be considered and how (eg no gust, half gust, all gust).

Our company considers the "Demonstrated" crosswind as limits AND that includes all the gusts too (Boeing and Airbus).

I'd have thought it was just like tailwinds. You treat whatever value is stated in the Performance Limitations manual as a limit, and include gusts if they are reported, rather than disregarding them. If your manual says not to land with tailwind above 10 kt and the reported wind is up the tail at 10 knots gusting 20, are you going to ignore the 20?

fr8tmastr I too would much rather have direct control with the flight controls. That's one of the reasons why I have chosen not fly the Airbus.
