XWind Testimonials

I have to tell you, your training program has been sooooooo useful to me.

Over the winter season, I went flying all over Colorado, and performed crosswind landings in all sorts of conditions at all sorts of airports.

I directly attribute (to your training) not only my success and safety with crosswind landings and takeoffs, but to the great FUN it is!

Many of these mountain airports have very irregular landscapes and wind conditions, and I personally find the challenge of assessing all the variables and making the safe correct choices and adjustments in each situation quite FUN!

I will heartily recommend your training to any aspiring aviator.

Thanks again!

Happy student in Xwind crosswind training simulator
I want more info!

Thank you guys so much!!!

I was dicey at crosswind landings at best.

Today, I landed 4 landings @ 20 knot crosswind component and nailed each one. My instructor was literally agape at the improvement.
– Jessica B. - Student Pilot
“450 hours - and 150 of those in the last 60 days. You’d think my landings, particularly in the past 60 days were nailed. So did I. Then I was introduced to a Crosswind Concepts session. The concept of a good pilot is always learning couldn’t ring truer than at Crosswind Concepts. I was brought back to the very basics of stick and rudder flying and was able instantly to regain that all important sight picture of a cross wind approach and landing. In my opinion, no check ride is complete without a few simulator rides in the Crosswind environment. It’s the difference between knowledge and proficiency.”
– Michael Kennedy - Private Pilot
Came here from St. Louis. I am a 300 hour pilot. Spent 2 1/2 hours pushing my limits and came away a better pilot. You can really learn in a friendly foregiving environment. I'll be back again. The staff are great.
– Stan S
 

Fact:  98% of all landing accidents in a single year occurred in crosswinds below 15 knots.

  • Crosswind landings are the most difficult maneuver in general aviation, according to Richard Collins, renowned aviation author and journalist.
  • Crosswinds and wind gusts are the leading cause of weather-related aviation accidents.
  • Crosswinds cause more accidents than rain, icing, thunderstorms, and fog combined.

Yet crosswind flight training is one of the most neglected skill sets among pilots of all levels – mainly because a crosswind shows up on its own schedule, not at the whim of a flight instructor.


In reality, most student pilots in cockpits receive just minutes of instruction in critical crosswind skills. Now there’s an effective solution to this dilemma:  the Xwind crosswind simulator.

Virtually every pilot profits from Xwind crosswind training.


Gain more crosswind skills in a two-hour Xwind session than in two years of flying!


Strap into an Xwind cockpit and be amazed as powerful motors provide roll, yaw and drift to give you remarkable simulations of crosswind landings. To replicate the true-to-life crosswind scenarios you’ll experience in the Xwind simulator would require countless hours of cockpit training.


But don’t take our word for it; click here to learn about outstanding results from a session in the Xwind simulator.  And click here to see a demo of the Xwind in action.

If you are renting an aircraft, you really need to carry your own renters insurance!  While the FBO may have insurance, it's there to protect them, not you.

We had the pleasure of working with Michael Kennedy a couple of weeks ago. Michael is a member of Independence Aviation's "Complete Proficiency Approach" program. One of the benefits is an hour session with us on the X-wind. Here's what he had to say about the experience.
