CROSSWIND COURSE

– RedBird Full Motion Xwind –

Crosswinds, together with wind shear, are some of the principal contributing factors to incidents at airports around the world.

For obvious safety reasons, during the training, flights in adverse weather conditions 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 wind shear.

What does the Crosswind Course consist of?

The course is composed of a specific theory class about the importance of wind in critical phases of flight. The different specific techniques to be used on approach and landing in adverse conditions are also discussed.

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

With briefings and de-briefings, performed by an experienced instructor, the student will make the most of the in-flight exercises. Until now, such a specialised training could not be carried out.
