Crosswind Calculator

Crosswind Calculator


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.

Mini FAQ

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.

Not calculating correctly Put the wind as 045 and the runway as 11/29 and it suggested a right xwind? I think it does not change the X wind side when it changes suggested rwy direction. Otherwise good app nice and simple. Could do with higher max wind strength.

Only 20kts Great interphase which is quick n easy to input but it needs a higher max wind speed as a lot of light a/c can handle 15kt crosswind. I need to know much higher limits.

Doesn't calculate the xwind component. Instead it suggests the runway number.??! and this you don't have any option for that.

Wind direction increments by 5 degrees Good app except the app needs a little modification for wind direction incrementing by 1 degree

Should be more obvious how to raise the max windspeed. Great app.
