One of the most critical and dangerous parts of aviation is during landing. The leading causes of accidents during this stage of flight are cross wind, turbulence, and gust. Until recently, there hasn’t been a way to practice in these adverse conditions besides directly placing oneself in them. This is no longer the case thanks to the Redbird X-Wind. This cross-wind trainer eliminates the risk and lets both new and veteran pilots hone their skills while in a controlled environment.
Up for a Challenge?
In the X-Wind, you can manipulate the winds to be as strong as 30 knots direct cross wind, 15 knots gusting and two different severities of turbulence. There’s a seat belt in this thing for a reason. The wind will blow you on the tracks and off the runway. You can make it as difficult or as easy as you want as you fight the winds down to make a safe landing. The machine will even give you score on your landing. Pilots can score between Crashed to 1000. Come see if you can beat the top score!
