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

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
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
Your enthusiasm made the training both fun and educational. It is nice to see someone so passionate about what they are doing. We also appreciated your well-thought-out and structured program which starts out with some easy drills and progresses all the way up to landings in challenging crosswinds, well beyond what we would ever be comfortable with taking on in the real world.

Using a crosswind simulator really is the most time and cost efficient way to polish crosswind skills. We can't image any pilot at any skill level who wouldn't benefit from taking your course.
– Tim & April Nathan - Private Pilots
 

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.
