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 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.
– Doniv Feltner - Chief Instructor of Wings of Wyoming
“450 hours - and 150 of those in the last 60 days. You’d think my landings, particularly in the past 60 days were nailed. So did I. Then I was introduced to a Crosswind Concepts session. The concept of a good pilot is always learning couldn’t ring truer than at Crosswind Concepts. I was brought back to the very basics of stick and rudder flying and was able instantly to regain that all important sight picture of a cross wind approach and landing. In my opinion, no check ride is complete without a few simulator rides in the Crosswind environment. It’s the difference between knowledge and proficiency.”
– Michael Kennedy - Private Pilot
Just wanted to let you know that Craig and I flew yesterday to practice some crosswind landings at KGXY and KBJC. The concepts I learned on the simulator translated very well to the SR20 and were extremely helpful. In fact, one of the landings at KBJC was with a 20+ knot crosswind! I would not hesitate to recommend Crosswind Concepts to anyone—thanks for your help!
– Steve Merker
 

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.
