One of the most elusive things about learning to fly is LANDING! Airplanes are not particularly good ground vehicles so converting them from flying vehicles to ground vehicles when you land requires knowledge, skill and a gut observation of what is happening each time.  The circumstances surrounding each landing is different.  A lot of pilots view it as a challenge.

The real challenge to be met is the dreaded cross-wind landing.  Here's a cool montage video of the big boys flying big iron under some pretty challenging conditions.
