I gotta ask - is it hard to land an amphib like that on pavement? Seems like you don't have a lot of room for error on your pitch attitude as you bring it in.
Just takes getting used to the nose high sight picture. As for pitch.. mains first then fly the nose wheels on. Gusty cross winds are definitely more work. The pitch attitude is way more finicky on the water.. miss the sweet spot on the foats and your gonna have a bad day.

As Capt. says, crosswinds can be fun, otherwise it is just a big shopping cart. Sometimes the nose wheels will shimmy and leaves a black ribbon on the runway.
