Crosswind, what crosswind?

Heres APA Integrated student Alex enjoying a ride in the Crosswind trainer located at the APA fair weather training base in Melbourne Florida.

The device allows our students to build crosswind landing technique and skill without ever leaving the ground. It measures their accuracy, giving a percentage of how close they ‘landed’ to the runway centreline.

Alex and Pete have been making the most of their access to this superb piece of flight training equipment with both of the boys scoring over 90% accuracy, after a few tries! 

Follow in their footsteps and join one of our APA integrated courses, next course starts on the 28th November with the first of 2017 scheduled for 30th January.
