– RedBird Full Motion Xwind –
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.
Like all standard aviation procedures, crosswind landings require constant practice to really master such special conditions.
In fact, wind gusts and crosswinds cause more incidents than thunderstorms, fog and ice formation combined.
Even the most experienced pilots are aware of the difficulty and precision required in approach manoeuvres to land in crosswind conditions.
Gusts of wind can also be a real challenge as it is impossible to predict their frequency and intensity. Therefore, it is essential to acquire the necessary skills to ensure the approach manoeuvres under these types of circumstances.
Our Full Motion Redbird Xwind simulator, specific for crosswind training, is the perfect tool to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve landing manoeuvres in total safety.
