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!

... 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
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!
– Jack L., Private Pilot
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!

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.
