Since the early days of powered flight, pilots have struggled with landing in crosswinds and learning proper crosswind landing techniques. Even today, most crosswind landing skills are learned through trial and error … sometimes with disastrous results. Believe it or not, the most common contributing factor in weather related accidents each year is crosswinds. The second most common factor is wind gusts. In fact crosswinds and wind gusts cause more landing accidents than fog, thunderstorms, and icing combined!
That’s where the Redbird Xwind comes in. It teaches pilots the proper techniques to meet and beat these top two causes of weather related landing accidents. By placing pilots in gusty, crosswind conditions for extended periods of time, the Xwind gives instructors all the time they need to teach the pilot the proper techniques for landing in challenging
