XWind Testimonials

"I went up to do some touch and go landings to apply the things we worked on. There was only a 6 kt x-wind but still allowed me to focus my approach. I found the work we did very helpful and look forward to going back up with stronger winds. Our work gave me a better feel for my personal maximums for x-wind landings. Thanks again and will come back for more work."
– Bruce H., Private Pilot, Cherokee Six Owner
Happy student in Xwind crosswind training simulator
I want more info!

I wanted to say thanks for the first rate training that you provided last week. I have been avoiding
crosswinds in my C 172. Now I have the confidence to practice in my aircraft. After your coaching,
I especially liked the solo practice in endless runway mode. I could dial any wind from either side up to 25 knots or more. I would go from crab to wing low to crab, effectively doing 1 landing every 40 seconds. To handle 20 knots at 90 degrees was a huge confidence builder -- all without any risk. At age 65, I like to show my insurance company some training. Your Redbird Crosswind training was excellent. I am glad I made the trip!

Thank you for taking the time to work with me yesterday. Todays landings were definitely improved and talking my landing all the way down was a huge help. I'll register for the WINGS program and let you know, thanks for the heads up.

I didn't see a huge improvement in Jim E. but he was fairly proficient already however I was amazed at the improvement in Wayne M! He is now taking command of the aircraft and has really good crosswind control. We went out yesterday with the wind 170 at 15 and he made all his landings (4) straight on the center line of runway 27. We then switched to runway 13 when the wind shifted to 200 at 10 and he did well on the right crosswind also.
– Doniv Feltner - Chief Instructor of Wings of Wyoming
 

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.
