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!

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.
– Charlie Moe - Private Pilot - Rosebud, SD
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
... 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
 

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.

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.
