XWind Testimonials

“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
Happy student in Xwind crosswind training simulator

... 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.
– Paul Varosy - Student Pilot
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
"... CC training came though when we ventured out on a cross-country flight from KAPA to KFNL then on to KGXY. We set up for a landing on runway 33, the winds were reported as 300 degrees at 12 knots gusting 18knots, higher than Ian was used to. Without hesitation he said "We'll be fine, I'm feeling good about this landing."

Was he ever right!! I didn't have to prompt him to use rudder, wind correction, or anything else. He lined up on final and said "OK Pointing my nose with my toes, and banking to stay on center." We touched down perfectly on center line on the upwind wheel and it was the softest landing he has made yet in his training!!

The BEST part was he kept full aileron deflection in after touchdown all the way off the runway where he asked "So when is a good time to let off the aileron?"

I could not be more impressed with what just one session did for his confidence and coordination as a student pilot!
– Kevan Thomas - CFII
 

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.
