3 Lessons

Basics of Crosswind Takeoffs and Landings:

This course is laid out in three parts, Text, Video, and Quiz.

You will read about how to make proper approaches and landings with crosswinds, then watch a short video inside of each section.  At the end of the three sections, you will watch a slightly longer video putting it all together, then take a short quiz. The videos not only show how to use the controls to maneuver the aircraft, but also talks you through how to properly plan out your approach and landing, as well as getting set up for takeoff. The approximate course time is 30-45mins.

What are the requirements?

  • Students should have a basic understanding of the parts and controls of a small aircraft (elevator, ailerons, rudder, etc)

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand how to control the aircraft during takeoff, approach, and landing with crosswinds.

    I'm yet to step into a GA airplane, but I feel so prepared when I finally do.

    I've been training for awhile now, and recently soloed. This course lays it all out for you in easy to grasp segments, and the video is a big help.
    The cockpit of an airplane isn't the best place to learn the theory, so I highly recommend, both before actual crosswind lessons in the plane, and afterwards!

    Where I live, we have a lot of opportunities to practice cross wind landings.

    Nice Program~!

    Solid explanations with good "real time" video walking through each traffic pattern segment.

    Jon uses challenging conditions to show real world application of proper crosswind techniques.

    The course is easy to follow as Jon describes each stage of flight in detail, from proper takeoff technique to exiting the runway after landing, managing and mitigating risk factors.

    Great short course for Student Pilots and a great refresher for Private Pilots.

    Would highly recommend!
