XWind Testimonials

Wow! What a fantastic tool for any pilot! Crosswind Concepts should be a mandatory part of every student pilot program.

Huge boost in my confidence for making crosswind landings!

Thanks Taylor!
– Paul Sheffield, Private Pilot
Happy student in Xwind crosswind training simulator
I want more info!

“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
I did crosswind training with you a few weeks back and I wanted to give you an update of my flight status.

Since the training with you, immediately afterwards my landings had drastically improved. I was landing centerline regardless of the wind conditions to include with your training I could visually see the intensity and direction of the wind in my head from the tactics you taught me. My instructor was amazing of the improvement to include I did my solo evaluation and they were even shocked. I am now flying solo and it's the greatest feeling ever all thanks to your teachings. Thank you so much!
– Brandon N.
Just wanted to share with you that my lesson last week featured a cross wind landing (and take off), and my instructor Steve was pleased with what I did. Thanks again for the great training experience!
– Jack L., Private Pilot
 

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.
