Crosswind Calc is a simple and intuitive way to visualise and calculate the crosswind and headwind components for departure and landing. The intuitive user interface makes it simple to dial in the current wind direction and strength and the runway heading and calculates the headwind and crosswind components in real-time as you change the parameters.
Whether you’re a seasoned pilot or a student just starting out, Crosswind Calculator enables you to clearly visualise the correct runway to use and confirm that you’ll be within your crosswind limits upon your return. Crosswind Calc can be a great teaching tool to demonstrate how a relatively small change in wind angle can materially change the crosswind component, turning a straight forward landing into something very much more challenging.
Q) Can I change the maximum windspeed?
A) Yes. Just go to the settings menu and you will find you are able to adjust it there.
Q) Why won't it show tail wind?
A) The application shows the recommended runway and therefore always shows a headwind. Should you find yourself having to land on the reciprocal runway, the tailwind will be equal to the headwind displayed within the app.
