DURING A CROSS COUNTRY FLT, THE PLT OVER FLEW THE RWY ONCE FOR A VISUAL WIND SPEED AND DIRECTION CHECK. DURING THE FIRST APPROACH THE ACFT WAS TOO HIGH SO THE PLT WENT AROUND. ON THE SECOND APPROACH, DURING THE FLARE, THE ACFT STAYED AIRBORNE DOWN MOST OF THE RWY. WHEN THE ACFT DID TOUCHDOWN, THE PLT REALIZED THERE WAS NOT SUFFICIENT RWY LEFT TO STOP THE ACFT, THEREFORE, THE PLT MADE A FAST TURN ONTO A TAXI-WAY.
