XWind Testimonials

I had heard about the crosswind training simulator for over a year and kept meaning to look into it. When I finally scheduled my lesson and simulator session I was surprised to see how practical and real the training environment was. Let’s face it, practicing crosswinds in a real airplane can be dangerous and is expensive. Practicing in this environment, for the very first time, you really could begin to understand the relationship of wind to rudder and aileron. After one hour and dozens of crosswind landings I had a much better understanding of this relationship and the way in which to successfully deal with them. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who flies regardless of experience level. You simply never get enough practice in this environment and this is an inexpensive way to sharpen your skills.

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!

... after working with you, when I saw a TAF yesterday predicting very strong crosswinds with gusts, I was actually really looking forward to getting in the air with Erik yesterday. Once we were in the air, the winds were strong with variable heading and quite strong gusts, and yet I felt more comfortable flying and landing the plane than ever - I think it’s more than safe to say that both Erik and thought I had made substantial progress.

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!

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.
