XWind Testimonials

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 traveled 7 hours to the Denver area for Crosswind training. I was very impressed with the course, especially the time spent on the simulator. It put the whole concept of crosswind landing in perspective. “Point the nose with your toes” goes through my mind every time I land. I came away with much greater personal confidence and my ability to land in a crosswind has greatly improved. The training was well worth the long drive.

Just wanted to let you know that Craig and I flew yesterday to practice some crosswind landings at KGXY and KBJC. The concepts I learned on the simulator translated very well to the SR20 and were extremely helpful. In fact, one of the landings at KBJC was with a 20+ knot crosswind! I would not hesitate to recommend Crosswind Concepts to anyone—thanks for your help!
– Steve Merker
 

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.
