XWind Testimonials

Thank you guys so much!!!

I was dicey at crosswind landings at best.

Today, I landed 4 landings @ 20 knot crosswind component and nailed each one. My instructor was literally agape at the improvement.

“Definitely the best flight simulation experience I’ve had since a charity auction flight in an Airbus 319 at the Frontier Airline Training Center.”
– Michael B. - Aircraft Owner
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!
– Brandon N.
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
 

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.
