XWind Testimonials

You guys are super! As a "rusty pilot" returning to flying after a VERY long hiatus, I recognized a need to recover skills that were once pretty good, but had slipped away from disuse.

You've developed a "psychomotor hack" that is just the ticket for dealing with the crosswinds so frequent on the Great Plains.

Taylor, you ran me through the wringer - in a pleasant sort of way - and by the time we were finished, I felt genuinely confident in my rediscovery of long unused skills. I hated to stop, but I could hardly wait to get back home and put them to use.

As it turns out, my very next session with my CFI, to finish up some Wings Basic flight activities, ended up with conditions much more challenging than planned, as a localized thunderstorm rapidly approached the destination airport. The steady but predictable crosswind turned gusty and variable, requiring all the skills I had just been working on. In all honesty, the landing wasn't perfect - I was still a little left of centerline, but with zero drift and tracking straight, and touched down one wheel at a time. I also got the aileron in full deflection during roll out, and kept it there (Thanks, Taylor!). It was incredibly gratifying.

I'll be back again next year; I just can't duplicate the intense, distilled experience in regular flying, and this is a skill that demands regular practice (much like golf).

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

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
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.
– Charlie Moe - Private Pilot - Rosebud, SD
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.

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.
