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.

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

I didn't see a huge improvement in Jim E. but he was fairly proficient already however I was amazed at the improvement in Wayne M! He is now taking command of the aircraft and has really good crosswind control. We went out yesterday with the wind 170 at 15 and he made all his landings (4) straight on the center line of runway 27. We then switched to runway 13 when the wind shifted to 200 at 10 and he did well on the right crosswind also.

Came here from St. Louis. I am a 300 hour pilot. Spent 2 1/2 hours pushing my limits and came away a better pilot. You can really learn in a friendly foregiving environment. I'll be back again. The staff are great.

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.
