CROSSWIND COURSE

– RedBird Full Motion Xwind –

The crosswind, together with the wind gust, are one of the main causes that contribute to most incidents at airports around the world.

For obvious safety reasons, during the training flights in case of adverse weather the flight will be cancelled; this makes it impossible to acquire experience in landings in strong crosswind conditions.

For this reason, at One Air, we have developed the only specific course for crosswind landings and windshear.

What does the Crosswind Course consist of?

The course is composed of a specific theoretical part about the importance of wind in critical phases of flight. The different specific techniques to face an approach and landing in adverse conditions are also discussed.

Besides, the student will practice landing approaches with crosswind at different intensities using the Full Motion Redbird Xwind simulator, unique in Europe.

With their corresponding briefings and de-briefings, performed by an experienced instructor, the student will make the most of the exercises in-flight phases in which, to date, such a specialized training could not be carried out.
