XWind Testimonials

"I went up to do some touch and go landings to apply the things we worked on. There was only a 6 kt x-wind but still allowed me to focus my approach. I found the work we did very helpful and look forward to going back up with stronger winds. Our work gave me a better feel for my personal maximums for x-wind landings. Thanks again and will come back for more work."
– Bruce H., Private Pilot, Cherokee Six Owner
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
As a long time CFI, I must admit I was skeptical – I couldn’t intuitively see how it would be effective. Not wanting to be embarrassed by not being able to ‘fly’ the thing, I reluctantly agreed to a demonstration flight – after about fifteen minutes of yanking and banking and pushing and pulling I came away so convinced of the trainer’s value and potential to help pilots become safer and more capable landing and taking off in crosswind conditions, we decided to make it an integral part of our training programs. All pilots obtaining a certificate, rating, or transition participate in a thorough session in the trainer – everyone has come away with enhanced skills and an appreciation of what it takes to be competent in cross wind landings.
– Bob Stedman, CEO of Independence Aviation
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.

This article was taken from AvWeb on March 5th. I continues to astound why some pilots make the decisions that they do. Not such a big deal unless they take someone with them. Which of course this guy did.
