XWind Testimonials

I did crosswind training with you a few weeks back and I wanted to give you an update of my flight status.

Since the training with you, immediately afterwards my landings had drastically improved. I was landing centerline regardless of the wind conditions to include with your training I could visually see the intensity and direction of the wind in my head from the tactics you taught me. My instructor was amazing of the improvement to include I did my solo evaluation and they were even shocked. I am now flying solo and it's the greatest feeling ever all thanks to your teachings. Thank you so much!

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

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 share with you that my lesson last week featured a cross wind landing (and take off), and my instructor Steve was pleased with what I did. Thanks again for the great training experience!

"... 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!

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.
