Airbus A330 Kicks Up Water On Very Wet Runway Landing

Nobody wants to hydroplane down the runway. Fortunately for most airliners, they have autobrakes to help prevent the problem.

But if you're not flying heavy metal and you're in a light aircraft instead, you need to reduce your hydroplaning risk by making sure your tires are inflated properly, and that you don't land too fast.
