Typical King School...!
I have not done a "King School" course for 20 years. I expected a simple approach to what may pilots consider to be complicated - ho, hum - They delivered! John and Martha have a methodical method that works for me. As a "Rusty Pilot", someone with 200hrs and have not not flown for 16 years I find their explanation of each procedure easy to understand, something I will take with me the next time I fly, and gives me confidence. Thank you King Schools!

Timeless and succinct
I've read complaints about the video quality being low. Sure, the videos looks like an 80s TV show from my childhood, but who needs 4K UHD images to learn how to land in a crosswind? John and Martha have been doing this so long, and are so good at making the difficult look and sound easy, that I'm sure they have thousands of hours of video they would have to update. I found this video once again, easy to follow, and motivating for me to run out and do some more crosswind practice.

FEEL SAFER ALREADY
Seeing is learning; doing as a master does is xperience coated with wisdom. A GREAT technique and perfect xecution, both in landing and instructing. But thats what Martha & John DO for US. Price is good, too!

This is the first time I review the website material and find it was structured with simplicity in mind so I can navigate to the materials I am needing rather than searching through advanced lessons which I am not needing at this time.

Cessna 172 an low wing Mooney
I was taught your way by my instructor ,who was a retired WW 11 Air corps instructor, ( 1973 ) have made many landing in my Cessna 172 this way and it works every time. I Have owned a Mooney M 20 C for a long time and it seems easier with it being a low wing. Having confidence in yourself and your airplane is the key to successful cross wind landings. To gain this you just can't fly on calm days. I have almost 1900 hrs with 472 in the Mooney.

Crosswind landings made easy
I enjoyed watching this informative video on crosswind landings. I am currently in flight school and luckily for me I started at the time where it has gotten very windy in southern florida and i'm making good progress thus far with taxing and takeoff, but I wanted to watch this in order to better understand landing my training airplane on the ground due to the crosswinds and heavy wind gusts we are having. I am now looking forward to putting this practice to use starting next week. I look forward to also watching more videos from King Schools.
